In this months Crafty Mag (issue 6) I have made a set of hobby merit badges using various embroidery stitches and materials. The cooking and sewing badge both use cross stitch and back stitch. While the knit badge uses back stitch, satin stitch and whipped back stitch. There is a handy stitch guide to help you out. It was a really fun project and I loved making them. I totally have a thing for medals!!
