Without patches, there would be no Girl or Boy Scouts! Here is all the information you require for making your own unique and tremendous custom Girl and Boy Scout patches.
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are generally the first organizations that come to mind when people think about patches for uniforms. Here at MakeMyPatch, we’ve assisted many Scout troops in creating their unique patches for events, parody merit badges, patrols, awards, or other accolades. So, don’t worry! You’ve come to the correct place if you’re wanting to create some high-quality, reasonably priced patches for your squad.
To help you get started making your own own Girl Scout patches, we’ll go over all you need to know in this post.
A brief history of personalized Girl Scout patches
In the early years of the Girl Scouts organization, in 1912, the first Girl Scout badge (or patch) was created. After meeting Robert Baden-Powell, the man who started the Boy Scouts (Scouting), in 1911, Juliette Gordon Low established the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Low was of the opinion that girls should be taught abilities and characteristics that would enable them to be independent and self-sufficient, such as knot tying, first aid, and fire starting.
Each of these abilities comes with a unique Girl Scout badge that perfectly represents it, of course! A girl scout badge can only be obtained by proving that the applicant possesses a specific level of expertise and understanding in the subject matter. There were a total of 27 proficiency badges in the original Girl Scout handbook, including Naturalist, Signaling, and Telegraphing. For instance, “girls have to transmit and receive a message in two of the following forms of signaling: semaphore and Morse code” in order to acquire the Signaling competence badge. They had to exchange no less than 24 letters each minute to communicate!
