From the European “Coat of Arms” to the Japanese “Mon”, heraldry can be seen as the ancestor of the modern ID card.

Use applique and mending techniques with found fabric, patchwork, and bricolage, and get busy fashioning a Coat of Arms series, then pick the one badge that you will be proud to wear!
