How-to: Make Felt Superhero Badges

felt superhero badges

Action figures are all well and good, but what could be cooler than a Superman-style badge with the first letter of your very own name?

My little nephews are superhero CRAZY. Seriously, they are obsessed. They are 5 and 7 years old and can name every superhero on every show, and they love playing with their action figures. I’m always on the lookout for fun little crafty gifts that I can make for them, and when I was packing for a recent visit with them, inspiration struck: personalized superhero badges!

Just imagine the make-believe that they could play with badges of their own. Fighting imaginary villains! Flying through the back yard at the speed of light! Leaping tall sand castles in a single bound!

You only need a few supplies to whip up your own custom superhero badge:

  • Recycled felt in two contrasting colors
  • Scrap paper
  • Pen
  • Fabric glue
  • Paper and fabric scissors
  • Safety pin or a pin backing
  • Needle and thread

Next >> Make your badge pattern and cut.

    You sure posted a fun project!
