Thanks!! Oh yes, I should have mentioned that it's big Smiley. It's about 4" long.

I thought I'd also add just a few blurbs on how I did it in case anyone is curios...

I searched Google for "lawn motor coloring page". Searching for coloring pages is a great way to find simple outlines of designs that are perfect for felt.

Then I traced the image onto trace paper and cut out each piece. I used the trace paper templates to cut matching pieces of felt in the colors I had selected.

When I had everything laid out, I used a fabric glue stick to hold it all onto the light green felt so it wasn't sliding all over the place while I was trying to stitch.

I used 2 strands of embroidery floss in corresponding colors to hold everything in place and add a few little details.

Does anyone else have suggestions for how to put a felt badge together? I think many of us are new to this so any thoughts would be welcome!!

I decided to make a pin board for all the awesome felt things out there for inspiration, and since i can't sleep I'm gonna add all the things to it.

I think I need a felt badge for one of my favorite memes "all the things!!"
