Oh thanks everyone- I hope the tutorial is useful and fun Grin

And  jexxican- yes, in fact the only limitations on the size of the image I've found so far are about 5"x7" - it does get a little flabby if one doesn't also throw in some seams in the middle Grin And of course , the image doesn't stretch, which is a drag when you put them on shirts Wink

BB these are genius, and I heartily agree with Microjivvy this is no cheating, it's just it's own brilliant thing, mixed media badges, you are super clever.

However on earth have you had time to make all these badges, which I can say especially since I know how much work you just did on my gorgeous wicked young medusa tin???

Perhaps my favourite is 'crafting after midnight' lol, too often me.

and extra gold stars for the tutorial!

BTW, I don't consider it cheating at all -- it's a mixed media badge, pure and simple.


I have been trying to tell her that since she started making them!  I think she should call them laminate badges, or vinyl badges.  Even if that is a bit confusing it is what they remind me of in person (I got some of the first ones she ever made Grin).

And you my BBB are FAB!!!  What a great thing to share.  I love the I meant to do it like that, as nearly every thing I make has that moment.  And all the different Bloody Sewing Machine are creepy and adorable all at once.  And your such a dear for giving away your sweet drawings.  I'm going to print them all out on photo paper just so they can hang around with my in my craft room Grin

And your so sweet to put Canada on the top of the international badge.  I know you did that just for me Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Oh, thank you everyone for the wonderful comments- I am really grateful you all appreciate it so much Grin

fancybutch- I actually made about 4/5 a week, because I spend 3 hours on public transportation each day and I usually spend my lunchbreak fiddling with something- and this stuff is small enough to carry around in my purse!

and suereal- thehee - yes, 'cause you are on top of everything! Grin

Thank you so much for sharing your technique!  So many possibilities!  Winter is coming (ha)...and these will be fun to do while watching tv or being cooped inside due to snow! Cheesy

Love your designs as well...very inspirational to try out a few of my own! (I have the perfect project, as a matter of fact....)

and of course, This ROCKS!
