Last fall, my hubby was hanging out with his friend wearing this Star Wars Achievement Badge Zippy.  His friend was so in love with and lamented about it to his wife when he got home.  She then contacted me and commissioned me to make a sweatshirt for him, but Game of Thrones themed, with the house crests.  In exchanged for wine, I happily accepted.  Yes, that's right, I've now become a hobo in the crafting world and will craft for booze.  Bring on the wine!

So, here is the finished sweatshirt:





And the badges before they were attached to the sweatshirt.  Each is made from wool-blend felt and embroidery floss.  All was hand stitched.  For some of the bigger areas, I used felt to fill in, but I did a lot of embroidery on these, more than normal.  Like on the buck, his antlers are entirely stitched.  All in all, I'm very happy with how it turned out.  She gave him the sweatshirt for Christmas and he loved it.  <3  It was definitely fun to make!

Thanks for looking!
