I've always loved merit badges...I never actually earned any when I was in Girl Scouts (most of the requirements were way too long and involved for my 10-year-old self) but they always appealed to me because I like collecting cute little things. Why I like ATCs so much, I guess. ^_^



I've been working really hard over the past couple of weeks making these! I'm doing all sorts of cute little pictures and icons, but of course I have a large focus on nerdy things.

Picture 1 (L-R): Mushroom, 20-sided die, Sailor Moon crescent, rainbow, bi pride flag, Rarity cutie mark
Picture 2 (L-R): Mario 1-up mushroom, Mario Super Star, Sailor Venus symbol, glasses, fried egg (yum!), Sailor Mars Symbol

I have lots more ideas (but I'm always welcoming more!) so I'm going to keep churning these out as much as I can until I have to apply for my local con's Artist Alley in January. Prepping for shows is hard work! I'm not sure how people do it. But I'm gonna work hard so I can finally live my dreams! Yeahhh!! ^_^

They are so cute and just perfect! I would award my husband with that sunny side up egg. He makes perfect eggs every time! Smiley Did you do these by hand?!?!?!

And good luck on your show!!!

These are perfect. The colors are fantastic and they really scream "collect me". Nice work. Thanks for sharing.

These are fantastic! You did a really great job on a lot of nerdy icons. The stitching is great. I would find it hard to get such uniform stitches around the edges and background. I'm impressed!

Yep, I did these all by hand, even the borders. It's kind of hard to tell because it's black but if you look closely on the D20, you can tell that's my first one because it's kind of messy (the Rarity one too). But I got better at it! It still takes forever though so I'm going to be experimenting soon with doing the borders with a sewing machine. If I can get it to look nice and neat with a machine then I'll probably switch.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Smiley
