This week’s FO is a very small one. I went over to a friend’s house to sew on Wednesday. We had been wanting to make Lanyards for our guild name tags. Unfortunately the pattern was horrible! Very light on instruction and hard to follow. There was a foundation paper pieced option or 8 HSTs at once. Since the pieces were so small, we opted for the FPP. Not sure it was a good choice.
We made more mistakes than successes, but by the end of the day we had hers done. LOL! I brought mine home after a quick visit to Always In Stitches. I needed to pick up my Handiquilter ruler of the month! And why not pick up a little more fabric?
I love their orphan bassinet. All of the orphans are $2.00 a piece and they range in cuts from 9″-13″. You can find a lot of good pieces in that bassinet!
Thursday was a day for groceries and some light housework, but by the afternoon I was able to get in the studio to finish my lanyard.
The pattern has piecing the entire length, but those pieces were just too tiny, so we sewed portions of the FPP and used the accent color for the rest of the length. I finished mine with backing and binding cut from one of my new fabrics. I love this blue!! I might need to get more.
Now I need to make a new name tag, since the one I use is for my previous guild. I plan to use our guild block for my tag. I plan to embroider my name in the center and add a D-ring to the back to hook it on my lanyard!
