Well my badges are finished... but ... they are HUGE, closer to 4 inches than 3, one of them started life as a correctly sized, shaped badge but I thought it would look better with a rectangular backing on it and the other just followed suit size wise  Undecided
They are nice though and there is a lot of work gone into them so I'm going to send them anyway and hope my partners don't mind their size too much

I totally know what you mean! My design was just right size wise then I decided it needed a little something extra and now it might be a little bit too big. I am going to try making a smaller one and then decide which looks best before I send!  Grin

I have made one (although as above might make some changes) and just deciding on how to implement the other!  Grin

I had soooo many ideas that I have a little collection of drawing that hopefully will be made soon!

Both of mine are done! yay!
These will probably go out with the wednesday mail Smiley

oooo! I can't wait!

-----------------------------

I am almost done with my second badge!  The good news is that I think my embroidery is already improving.  The bad news is that i want to keep it for myself!  Actually, I don't feel comfortable sending to someone unless it's something I would really like to keep Cheesy

I will definitely by sending sometime this week!

I had good intentions of getting my badges done over the weekend but instead spent that time at the hospital with my brother.  Maybe tonight I can really get going!

My first finished one is large also - same as above. The leaf looked fine embroidered but I added a rectangular back to spiff it up and it looks big. So that one will be mine. I will try version 2.0 tonight and see how small I can go. Maybe I'll use my nail scissors to cut it out ....

Just finished cutting my felt! Once the glue dries, it's stitching time!

If your partner is okay with a larger badge it's completely fine to make something bigger than what is suggested in the swap details.
