I decided to make an Impractical Jokers themed merit badge for the July stitchalong because my family and I have become quite addicted to the tv show and relax watching it. One of the jokers, Q, has a tattoo that says: 38. Lives alone. Has 3 cats. This tattoo was part of a show punishment and was chosen by another of the jokers.
Anyway, while I am not a tattoo person myself, it makes an awesome merit badge, so I stitched it up for my offering this month. It’s slightly different from Q’s because I didn’t have white transfer paper so I drew it with white gel pen then embroidered.
I did a rope like stitch around the circle, then penned felt to the back and did a backstitch around the other stitch to connect the black felt to the fabric.
