Den flag notes; appliquéd tiger face.

I've been quiet posting lately because I've been busier than I expected with this year's volunteer duties.

One of my more engrossing projects has been a den flag for our new Tiger cubs. For the most part, it's pretty standard -- 36"w x 45"h, navy blue cotton, has "DEN" and the numeral appliquéd in a font that pretty closely matches the den stripe in the uniform insignia and I've made smaller segments appliquéd with the same font in a smaller size with the boys' first names. (They're sewn instead of appliquéd directly to the flag to allow for future changes in the den roster.)

I plan to stitch guidelines to place the 4.25" square rank stickers from the national supply catalog as the den progresses. I thought they'd like something neat there in the meanwhile, so I made a quick appliquéd tiger face. It's only fused together right now, but here's a sneak peek at it:
