Nellie Will-Do – Stitching and Crafting Complete

Nellie Will-do

For this badge, you can pick any kind of fiber art not required for any of the other badges. This includes about anything you can dream up—everything from felting and locker hooking to postcard quilts to curtain and clothing construction to upholstery or slipcovers. Projects must be completed and photographed.

Beginner Level requires a 25-hour investment of time.

Check out my original post from July!

Intermediate Level requires a 50-hour investment of time.

This photo was taken in between the 50-100 hour mark, the last three columns (out of nine) took me the longest because they were much more intricate than the other columns.


Expert Level requires a 100-hour investment of time.

This photo gives you an idea of how detailed and massive this project was! I’m definitely sure I put in 100 hours as sometime a half square would take 45 minutes and there were over 60 squares! So proud of this piece. I gave it to my mom for her birthday in November.


To give you an idea of how long this took me, I started in April and I finished in November!


Stitching & Crafting – Knitting (Beginner)


Beginner Level

  • If you don’t know how to knit, learn.
    • I didn’t know how to knit, so my mom taught me!
  • If you are just learning how to knit, start with a simple straight scarf. If you already know how to knit, pick a simple project like a dishcloth.
    • I did a simple straight scarf for my boyfriend.
  • Finish your knitting project. There is a three-hour minimum time investment required.
    • It took me over 10 hours to finish as he wanted a long scarf!

Pretty proud of how my very first knitting project came out! As you can tell I finished this back in December, but I’m trying to get back into the Sisterhood, and updating this blog is probably a good place to start!

Stitching and Crafting – Nellie Will-do Progress

Can we please talk about how excited your sister was when she saw this badge?

I am a little obsessed with latchhooking and it never gets the recognition it deserves. My mom bought me a simple one for Easter when I was twelve, and i’ve been hooked (haha puns) ever since.

I picked up the most difficult project I’ve ever attempted. It will definitely take me over 100 hours.

Beginner – 25 hours
