Try-its, Badges, IPs
Sahuaro GS of Southern AZ Council’s Quilt-itQuilt-It! projects provide fun and creative ways for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadette/Seniors to learn basic quilting skills. The Try-It, Badge, and Interest Project were developed by members of the Tucson Quilters Guild Education Committee.
The Sahuara GS Council has processed badge orders for over 350 girls from 20 states! Attractive quilts are produced, with both the scouts and their leaders enjoying the work.
Elementary skills are taught, so that all work can be completed by hand sewing and quilting. Sewing machines are an option for more advanced girls.

All Fun/Service/Activity Patches are unofficial and not to be worn on the front of the official recognition sash, vest or tunic.
Helping Others locally & internationaly
I Love Fashion - you can create or embelish clothing to make it your own
Mom & Me - you can have a mom & daughter workshop, a great idea for the younger girls.
Arts & Crafts - Sewing and quilting are definately an art form...just check out the quilts and garmets at the International Quilt Festival.
Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas & Holiday Projects - make something for the season/holiday for kids in the hospital or others in the hospital (especially the Veterns Admin. Hospital) or a nursing home
Recycle - do a project that involves using old clothing...blue jeans are always a great source of fabric
Try-its, Badges, IPs & Patches
Here is what other Councils have put together...why start from scratch as well as the standard Try-its, Badges & Interest Projects. (These can all still be earned but they are around only as long as the patches themselves are available at both the council & national level) These are being phased out and the new "Badges" will be phased in.
Activity Patches can also be earned, these can be worn on the back of the vest or sash. Listed below are possible options, your choice.
