    • Not even one. Say a 1st class scout has attended several events where he as earned a patch and is very proud of those first three rank ovals and each temporary insignia. Get him a sash and have him stitch each insignia on the back side. That way, he'll have a sash just like his buddies at the next court of honor. Then he'll be ready to sew on his first (or first ten) MBs the evening that they are awarded. I am trying to nudge the boys in my troop into doing the same thing.
    • I thought about that, but based on his doctor, it will be several years before we have to worry about much in the way of outgrowing anything.  Plus, in the year and a half since crossover, it has gone from 1 MB sewn on to 16, with 2 more to be added by the end of the month.  Once he does hit that inevitable growth spurt, he will have more than enough to hone his sewing skills, either by hand (as I did more than half a century ago) or on the sewing machine.
    • I would go ahead an get the large NOW while there are not many MBs on it. Trust me on that. I've seen folks with MB sashes right underneath the armpit as they age.
    • there's is only two sizes if I remember correctly.   So if they are a very small kid, and and probably will never grow bigger then a L tshirt size, get the smaller one. If they are already in the L+ shirt size as a crossover, get them the large size.   No one wants to take off the merit badges on a small sash to re-put them on a bigger one.
    • I've never had a scout wear an empty one, but I have a few very proud scouts that show off their first earn badge on their sash.
