You might be able to get it in your local craft store, if not try a fabric store.

That's so adorable! I've been looking for something to do with my badges other than pinning them to my purse. Thanks for the great idea!

Yeah, it was just clear vinyl I used and it went through my normal machine foot fine.

Are you sewing with vinyl or something else? Do you use a special foot? I\'ve tried sewing vinyl (for this project) but it keeps catching. I\'m thinking about getting a teflon foot but I figured I\'d ask if you used something other than vinyl first.

Thanks Happy It\'s such a cute idea too.

I love this idea! Whenever I put my badges on my bags or clothing, they always fall off and I've been looking for a way to display them and not lose them. This is perfect! Thank you so much! Where do you come up with all these creative ideas?
