Scutelliphily: Patch or Badge Collecting

Scutelliphily: apparently this is a real word, or at least it’s listed in wikipedia. I’d never heard of it, but sharonb’s inaminuteago has this interesting post about patch collectors, aka scutelliphily.

Sometimes it seems like I can’t catch up with the world, but if it weren’t for all those scutelliphists I followed around, there might never have been any Female Merit Badges.

    I’m lurving those granny panties, the pill and the goddess. Have you made all of these? Do you have an Etsy shop? or somewhere else that a girl might buy these patches or a pattern for some?

    Glad you like the badges. The images are all hand-embroidered, usually on a commercial patch blank. I do commissions quite often at about $150-300 each.

    What a great idea to sell patterns, but I don’t do that at this time.

    I have a poster that I sell at http://www.maryyaeger.com, but I’m having about-face.org take the orders for them right now, so contact them if you’re interested.

    Etsy is very cool but I haven’t looked into it. I do ebay occasionally.
