Hats that Say, Hello World, Yes, I AM a Geek

I’ve been collecting patches, specifically vintage Girl Guide merit badges with a nature or craft theme for years and figured it was about time I actually, you know, did something with them short of keeping them in a box. It’s a nice box and all but I really only look into it approximately one to three times a year. I made myself a dandelion hat that I wear regularly during the really cold months and since I love mine so much I figured you might too. It’s certainly better than keeping them in that sadness box*. I’ve added five hats to the store, each bears a vintage Guide patch. Perhaps you have a farmer, dandelion lover, arborist, happy camper, or birder in your life? I only have one each so when they are gone that’s all she wrote.

*The direct link to the sadness bowl routine to which I am sort-of referring is here but just warning that it’s kinda work inappropriate.

  1. Well, I certainly read this post a few days too late. Thanks for sharing your collection with us. I love the small remaining stock of stitched patches my father has old system of achievements Royal Rangers (program similar to boy scouts) of those items that were once so detailed and are now screen printed.

  2. Somewhere I have a computer technology badge from when I was a kid. Seriously. I think it had 1′s and 0′s on it. I’ll have to see if I can find it. Now that is geeky!
