Easy trick to keep metal pins from rotating and moving (great for Girl Scout Membership year pins)

Standard

My daughter is a second year Daisy Girl Scout and her vest is quickly filling with badges and pins now. I’ve always had the frustration of seeing her pins rotate and be turned sideways or upside down. Today while sewing on her latest earned petal, I got the idea to try and correct those pins.

I’ve used a tiny piece of scrap felt and cut tiny squares out. Making certain they are small enough to hide behind the pin when on the fabric. I put one square through the back of the pin and then put the pin back in place on the vest.

This easy and simple trick worked perfectly and now all of the pins have stayed perfectly upright.

It should work for any metal pin including Girl Scout pins and also Disney Trading pins.
