Cub Scout Patches

Scouting is a big deal in my house. My dad is a big scouter and my kids love sharing their scouting stuff with him.

My oldest boy is out of cub scouts now and I have kept his shirt with all his patches and awards - I just didn't know what to do with them.

Then my next boy turned 8 and started cub scouts. I am frugal and did not want to go and buy another cub scout shirt when I had one sitting in my boys closet. So I removed all of the patches and fixed it up for my next boy.

I saw a pennant on pinterest of patches and decided that I would do something similar. Here is my take on the Cub Scout Memory Pennant.

I used the arrow from the Arrow of Light award to hang it from(except in the move we lost the tip - still trying to figure out how to fix that). It gives it that extra boy touch!

I kind of like how it turned out - and he LOVES it, which makes this project a success!

Here is some of the info on how I did it. I just eyeballed how big I wanted the pennant and cut it out. I used kona solids from Joann's for both the navy back and the yellow binding. I sewed all of the patches on then then used an heat'n'bond and sewed a piece on the back. I did not want to have a ugly back full of strings, so now my back looks like this:

It is not perfect, there are still strings on it, but my son wanted it hung up and I obliged him!

Pin It! \


  1. That is an awesome idea! Now, better get thinking on that Eagle quilt, he'll be there before you know it. :-)

    1. Thanks Marcella, and yes I better get on that - as much as I would like him to stop growing up!!

  2. Wow, that turned out awesome! Love it.

  3. What a great idea! I love using the arrow as the hanging rod!
