  6. Just wait until you see how many challenge and activity badges there are for Cubs! Well done to him on his Chief Scout Bronze, and I'd definitely follow Di's suggestion!

  8. As a Scout leader I've sewn on more badges than I care to remember and I've hated everyone of them!

  10. Yes I am always amazed at how my husband believes that sewing buttons back onto his trousers or fixing a collar should somehow be regarded as my "hobby". Er, no! Could you Bondaweb the badges on? I have all this to look forward to with Brownies in the future!

  14. I've done all mine on the machine with an extra long stitch length for easy removal (if necessary) later on. Not fun, but better than hand-sewing. Good luck.

  15. I so agree. If something needs mending or a button sewn on it usually stays in the basket until it goes out of style or the kid has out grown it.

  16. I always went with the theory if they were old enough to earn the badges they were old enough to sew them on. At least I did after the first marathon session of pack badges and all that. Learned my lesson early.

  18. Awful aren't they! I always ended up sewing them on at the kitchen table half an hour before we had to leave for whatever club it was for :-)

  21. Ha ha!! I don't like sewing my own on my leader shirt but strangely did Chookie's with pleasure. I think coz she'd earned them. The first lot with the group and area badges are the worst though - hope you bought a giant jumper so it lasts 2 years!!

  22. I am so with you. I am a quilter, not a tailor. At least B does all of his own mending when I give him a needle and thread. Thank goodness!

  23. My grown daughters were just commenting the other day that all of their Girl Scout badges were in a drawer somewhere and had never been sewn on their sashes. I didn't sew back then, but I told them I could do it for them now! Haha. Maybe I should for a funny Christmas gift.
