Girl Scout Friendship Pins

Girl Scout Friendship Pins
Brownie girls, that is.  They made friendship pins to send to our penpals in Colorado (Jessica, don’t look, they are in the mail).  I love how completely old school they are.  Did you guys make these in the 80’s?  Who out there still has one pinned to an old denim jacket from high school?  Our 3rd graders just loved these and did such a good job of making them, a very successful project.  We picked Girl Scout, Brownie, and Trefoil patterns from here, there are more patterns here, more patterns everywhere if you google friendship pins.
The basic supplies are:
A coiless safety pin
Regular 1 1/2″ safety pins
for the rest
Size 8 Japanese seed beads.  You could use any seed bead sold at a craft store that would fit on the safety pin, we went to Fusion Beads here in town because they have great colors and selection.  Emma is in the room making one at my studio table right now, they are addictive.
Thank you for your encouraging words on the shop update.  There are more things in the pipeline for Spring, as soon as they are done I will let you know.  And many of you have asked if there will be more charm bracelets.  My answer?  Of course!  Cover the world in charm bracelets I say!  I’ll let you know that too.  Soon…
Feeling back in the swing of things today, finally recovering from that lost hour maybe?  I am enjoying hanging out with my other girl in the studio, who is not quite as chubby as she looks in this picture, although gosh, maybe she is-

*Does everybody else relook at the title of their posts and wonder if its one that will target spam the way I do?  This one probably will.
