My kids never got extra patches really. :(
My 8yo only had the flower on the front and I think 3 patches on the back. We started at the bottom, though, so you could see them if her hair got long. I started at the top on my older dd's Brownie uniform and her hair covered most of them.
My kids never got to go to any of the events because we never had the money and I had no car to get them there so they only ever earned the patches for whatever they were working on during meetings so they didn't have many. Plus their leaders the last 2 years waited until the end of the school year to give ALL the patches for the year. By then my oldest was done with Brownies so I never even put them on the vest (she had like 20). I was sad.
