Since this seems to be the official/unofficial board for felt badges...

I made these two droid felt badges for fancybutch for round 2 of the felt badge swap. 
She mentioned that she loves robots and Star Wars, and I'm a closet Star Wars fanatic, so the choice was easy!



R2D2 a.k.a. R2


C3P0 a.k.a. 3-P0 or Goldenrod! heehee!

I later regretted omitting the rest of his arms. I had a hard time deciding where to bisect him, and I was too afraid of trying to do his whole body as a 3" x 3" piece (as those are the maximum measurements for the felt badge swap!)  Of course some of the crafters are so talented that they manage to fit 10 times the amount of detail in that small of a space!  I'm working my way there, slowly.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

These are really exceptional, La Chapa! I might have mentioned it before, but the detail you managed to work into such a tiny piece of felt is simply amazing and I bow to you for getting them to look excactly like the originals Grin
