You deserve an award! You are awesome, and you should let the world know. Make yourself a medal for your proudest accomplishments and wear them proudly. Also perfect for gifts to let your friends know how great they are. It is also a fun embellishment for stuffed animals, as I first made these for use with the Captain Badger Pattern. This is the perfect project for putting your button collection to use. Vintage brass buttons are particularly effective as they often have cool coats of arms, eagles or other militaristic themes. Choose your ribbon based on how formal (traditional military colors like red, white, navy, etc.) or playful (bright colors, polka dots, etc.) you want your medals to look. Let's begin! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use a glue gun SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS about 1 inch by 2 inches

Recommended with this pattern

  • A few brass buttons (or other interesting buttons)
  • Small safety pins
  • Striped grosgrain ribbon
