Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Nikki Hurlbut!!!

Nikki Hurlbut (#5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Aprons Merit Badge!

“I used a pattern to cut out my apron and then trimmed it to size. I had to sew each pocket on, then each strap to the apron. Then I sewed ribbon around the length of the apron for added color.

It was my first apron, so I cannot be too upset. However, I am going to need a lot more practice if I hope to make a hobby of this one day!”

    Nikki, you did a great job for a first apron! I tried my hand at one with the pattern I got from joining the sisterhood and it ended up with several revisions before it looked half normal! It will get easier the second time around so don’t shy away!

    When you freeze them in jars do you put a lid on them and also do you check to make sure they are freezer safe, as in not breakable. There are certain jars that can safely be used in the freezer and some that are not. I found this out the hard way. Just because a jar you buy with food in it at the store has measure marks on it does not mean it is a canning jar. It isn’t. Also, I wrote recently to the Ball canning Co. about what are freezer jars? They said the one (like the pictured one’s) with straight shoulders are usually for canning in the freezer like the Jam Jars from Bell Co.. Those with round shoulders are usually for non-freezer canning.
    I have used your process of using Ice cube trays and they really work great. Just enough for most soups, stews, meats, etc.
