"Survivor" Adult Merit Badge

I made this for the current Adult Merit Badge Swap. Inspired by a “plague survivor” badge my partner had pinned. I used scraps from mask-making for the background and used @Magpie’s darted front mask pattern to whip up a mini mask.

The mask pops off the badge - it’s the real deal, lol:

Here’s a pic of the scaled down pattern:

And the background piece before I cut it:

It was really fun to make, and I think I know of few more crafters worthy of this badge…:thinking:

Oh. It “pops off“ as in away from the background. Whoops. Though you could cut the 4 stitches holding it on and “pop” it off if you really wanted to! :laughing:

Thanks all!

D’oh, I misunderstood. It could be cool to sew it to a snap, and have it pop on and off. (Says the costumer who has sewn a million snaps for a million silly reasons.)
