Girl Scout vest
This may not seem like a big deal to some people… but I had put off sewing Simone’s badges on her vest for 1 1/2 years! 😮
Talk about procrastination!!
My new year’s resolution for 2018 is to do things that I find hard.
For some reason, the Girl Scout vest intimidated me!
I was worried I would do it all-wrong…
…but, I decided now was the time- with Cookie Booths coming up!
So, I pulled out the vest and asked for help! I was confused about badge and patch placement – yes there is a difference between the two!
After I pinned everything in it’s proper place, I bought invisible thread and sat down with my trusty sewing machine!
1 1/2 hours later – ALL DONE! 💕
I love bling on my jean jacket… (this picture is a bit old- my hair is longer and I have more pins)
The point is now I want to sew cool patches onto my jacket and be all hip and cool like Simone!
I know different parks and museums have patches and maybe when I see a special bird I can get a patch to represent it!
… oh the possibilities! I realize this may make me an even bigger nerd- but hey- at least I’ll be a nerd with style! 😉
