I’ve been spending a lot of time away from the kitchen this month. Slaving over a hot sewing machine instead. You see, a while ago I discovered The Science Scouts, a super awesome site that celebrates the science-y accomplishments of nerdy types like me. They have created badges for accomplishments, but no actual – tangible thingies to sew on a bag or lab coat. So I took the initiative and picked up where they left off.
My plan was to make the ones my friends and I have accomplished, and sell a couple extra on etsy to pay for the materials. However, I have gotten such great feedback from everyone, including O.O.T.S.S.O.E.R.A.A.A.P. itself, that I’m going to try and make a few of all of them (90 something, if I counted correctly), WHEW!
So if you are interested, please let me know. You can reply to this post or contact me via etsy with a list of the badges you want and I’ll contact you when they are ready. I am also thinking of ways to show off the badges i.e. sashes, etc., and will make them on special order.
Be warned, these are handmade, not in any way professionally done. There will be minor flaws, at least in the first few, but all of them are made with love. I hope you find them as special as I do 🙂
