Ever do a Our Own Troop's badge/TryIt?

My Brownies and Juniors both did a Our Own Troop's badge and will complete the work on it next week. They've worked super hard to get them.

BUT now that I'm looking to have the badges ordered, I'm running into problems.

Has anyone done this? Where did you get the badges/Try-Its made?

So far I've heard "we aren't licensed to do Girl Scouts badges" or "we have a minimum order of $150" or "you have to order a minimum of 300".....and the latter two didn't get far enough to tell me they aren't licensed.

I'm ready to buy the blanks and draw on them.

yeah, they suggested using fabric markers on the blanks to make our own......or hand-embroidering.

Or look for a small applique and glue it onto the blank.

We already designed it.....so I may ask someone to embroider it on fabric and then glue it down to patch blank (or get the fabric that goes through printer and just print design and glue it down.

Good Question... we've never done one, but another troop did. They bought fake flowers and had the girls sew a fake flower onto the blank badge. I'm not sure what they did, maybe gardening?

I read instructions on making your own patch a few years ago.


Print your design on iron on fabric, iron it onto a piece of twill, ask someone to cut and serge the edges.


That way, you can get the right size and shape and still have a custom look.
