Boy Scout bookbinding merit badge

Boy Scout Merit Badge - BookbindingEarlier this year, I talked about my purchase of bookbinding merit badges I bought from Pod Post. I somewhat jokingly mentioned that perhaps I’d add a Boy Scouts bookbinding merit badge to the mix.

It’s official – I have mixed.

I purchased my new baby from Ebay seller TSPA, an outlet for Scouting collectibles. It cost me all of $2.95, including shipping.

I love love love it!

I just finished sewing it on my work apron. I have absolutely no future in any type of sewing profession, but I was successful in getting the thing on securely.

My badge looks kinda lonely on there, all alone on the right side of the apron. Hopefully I’ll find some more badges to keep it company.

Velma –

I bought that apron at Green Heron Book Arts when I was in OR for the Focus on Book Arts conference. It broke my heart when I got my first stain on it. 🙁

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
