My career in girl scouting was short lived, the last patch I earned being that cool rainbow Brownie to Junior patch I received before promptly deciding enough was enough. Something makes me think that I stuck it through the Brownie years just because my eyes were on that sweet patch prize.
While visiting my parents, I came across my old uniform in the back of my childhood closet and it was filled with colorful merit badges and enamel pins that I got for “doing good…” or “bettering myself…” Becoming “more well rounded as a good little citizen…”
So when cool new adult versions of the flair started popping up on my Instagram and Pinterest feeds and I found that I can happily decorate my clothing while doing no good at all – well, I was thrilled. These are some of my favorites, see below for where you can find these gems.
