Amanda made my name tag very punctually in February because she is a good girl. My tag-making has been delayed, partly by my own inability to carve out some sewing time to do it, and partly as a result of my notorious tendency for indecision. I changed the concept at least 3 times before deciding that I would use the famous Paris Metropolitan lettering for the "Metro" from MetroQuilter:
So here is my version:
And the back, taken from a Petite Ecole panel:
The lanyard is a bit too long - this is what comes from blindly following an online tutorial - so I think I will rectify that before I give it to Amanda:
I used this beasty machine - the Crop-o-Dile II - to punch the hole fix the eyelet. The eyelets I bought initially were too thin and flimsy for my liking so I ordered some heavier duty ones with washers which arrived today and which definitely give a better finish than the rubbishy ones.
Now I have to get started on my Sample Swap items for the Fat Quarterly Retreat - luckily for me, Amanda was kind enough to wait patiently for her tag, but the Sample Swap has a time and a place so they will just have to be ready on time! I will be making Mug Rugs, so I need to decide on a design sharpish and get sewing.
