I never know if it is better or worse to know someone you are making a swap for! For the lanyard for the Stitchgathering 2017 i was given the lovely Heather @sewtoescape.
What to do! Plus my hand embroidery is not that great any more for name stitching .....
Fortunately inspiration struck in the form of my newly acquired selvedge addition.
This is the front, can you see the selvedge in the middle? Heather Ross :-) i bought some alphabet beads and voila! We have a name badge!
Some scissors ribbon for lanyard, few more selvedges for the back. And we are done!!!
