I need a nap, and a thimble

February 24th, 2009 at 08:19 pm

My fingers are all busted up from sewing patches on, though I did find this glue that works well to 'sew' patches for things that don't move much, works on the daisy tunic, but not so well on a back pack.

Tonight GMC gets his Wolf badge so I will have to sew that one on too, I am debating on sewing it to his shirt that is too short in the sleeves, or getting him a new shirt and sewing it along with all the other patches anew.

sure would be easier to make up my mind if he were a bear, Webelos have a different shirt, but as wolf he needs to be in blue for another year and couple months.

    Those patches never iron on real well for me. I usually just pull out the sewing machine!

    My DS6 is a Tiger Scout and his Pack recommended buying one shirt to see him thru to 5th grade. I opted to do that because I didn't want to have to transfer the patches, but he does look a bit ridiculous in a shirt SO big (and might I add he is small for his age).

    first through 5th grade is a bit long for a shirt to fit, this one was largish on him last year (Tiger) but it had sentimental value, was his fathers...

    If I were any good at sewing I would make it short sleeved, cause the real issue is his arms are too long.

    Our pack advises getting a shirt that will be right in wolf year, smidgen big for Tiger, smidgen small for bear, then you switch to tan for Webelos.
    oh well.
