start with your fleece. i bought 1 1/2 yds for the top with a coordinating 1 1/2 yds for the backing.
square up your corners and cut a 4x4 inch square.
to make your ties, cut 4 inch strips, 1 inch wide.
instead of your scout pinning you and possibly snagging whatever you have on, (and the awkwardness of his hand in your shirt, lol) just have him pin the necklace. and it's a great way to keep track of your pins and show off your sons accomplishments at every scout event.
here's my sister-in-laws necklace...as you see, it's almost completed. can't wait to have an eagle scout nephew next year! way to go T!

1 - 15 oz can of black beans rinsed and drained
1- 14 1/2 oz can of diced tomatoes (the kind with onions r the best!)
1- 10oz bag of frozen corn
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red green or yellow pepper. I use red cause it matches!
1- 10 oz jar of enchillada sauce (red)
1 - 10.75 oz can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup shredded Pepper jack cheese
2 chicken breast
In crock pot put the beans, tomatoes, corn, onion and peppers. Place on top of that 2 raw chicken breast. In a bowl mix the enchillada sauce and soup. Slowly add the milk. Pour the enchillada sauce mix over the other ingredients in your crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours for high for 3-4 hours. Take out the chicken and shred it and then put it back in the slow cooker until you are ready to serve. Top with the grated cheese and if you want ( which I always do) crushed tortilla chips. I also put sour cream on top! SO GOOD!
