    My son in law started as a scout master when my DGS started scouts then my DGD started girl scouts when she became old enough. Anyway they all had over 100 badges each they had earned and they were just laying in drawers. They asked Granny to make them wall hangings with their badges attached so this is what I came up with. It was quite a job because they became VERY heavy as I kept adding the badges. I used the Kauffman scout fabric lines for each of them.

    Special congrats on the Eagle. That is quite an accomplishment for your DGS. And the other badges have made such keepsake wallhangings. You did a wonderful job.

    Those are so cute. I love that idea. DGD is bridging this Sunday and I have that same fabric to make her a quilt too.
