MERIT BADGES ... a cozyblue embroidery pattern

"charm strikes the sight, but merit wins the soul." - alexander pope

these merit badges were created to recognize three very important qualities: bravery, kindness, and wisdom.
stitch some up for a deserving friend, a family member, or for yourself.
let's celebrate the good stuff.

here's what you'll get:
PDF file detailing several methods of transfer instructions
full sized pattern
list of the embroidery floss color and stitches i used in the example photo.. feel free to use them as a guide if you like, or do something totally unique -- it's up to you!
my 'getting started with hand embroidery' guide and an instructional how-to for my favorite basic stitches
(note: the example photo shows my prototype badges. this final pattern is a little more uniform and finished than those in my photo)


*each badges is 3" high, and approximately 3.375" wide
