I’m putting this merit badge in misc because there’s both embroidery and cross-stitch.
I made this for my partner in the TM/Adult Merit Badge swap. I mashed up her cat and yarn theme for this super funny badge. I mean, seriously, can yarn even yo-yo?
Every single time I think of this, and the participant ribbon, I crack up!
I’ve attached the yarn yo-yo embroidered part to the participant ribbon with velcro so my partner could choose to keep it attached or unattach if preferred.
I used iron on adhesive to layer to pieces of the paw print fabric, then iron on adhesive to attach the participant part. I created the cross stitch letter pattern myself by drawing it out and trying to keep them as all as close in height and width as possible.
I decided to send along a safety pin for attachment purposes, and a bit of extra velcro in case it did not make the journey well enough.
I imagine there’d be a lot of participation ribbons in the yarn yo-yo championships.
