I enjoyed stitching my name tag for EGA meetings. However, I am just starting to feel like it will never be totally complete. I brought it to the meeting this month and it was finished enough so that I was not fined – haha!
Finished name tag.
The stitching was complete awhile ago. I wanted to make it into a little pouch to hang around my neck. Several of the other members made theirs into pouches and say this is really helpful at conferences (which I hope to attend in the future) as it is a place to put your ID, credit card, and a little cash without having to carry a purse. Makes sense to me!
I am really happy with the zipper. The zipper had to be shortened to fit into this pouch and that went surprisingly well – no zippers were harmed or destroyed this time.
The pouch is also completely lined. I like everything lined and all seams hidden. Now that the pouch was done, I needed to make something in order to hang it around my neck.
DIY kumihimo disc.
I decided on a kumihimo braid/cord. Since I don’t have a “real” disc, I made my own.
Kumihimo cording progress.
It’s slow going and I need about 40 inches…
Closeup of the cord.
Sorry this is so blurry. I could not, for the life of me, get a clear picture. I’m not unhappy with the cord, but not totally happy either. I’m not going to redo the colors, but next time I will make cording I will plan better. There is too much white and not enough gold or purple for my taste.
Today, I finally finished the stitching on my nametag for the chapter of the EGA I attend.
Woo Hoo! Now it’s time to turn it into a lined, zippered little bag that hangs around the neck. Onto choosing fabric and trim!! Fun, fun, fun!
I didn’t make it…
I had needed to finish this before the EGA meeting this month and I didn’t manage to do it. Oh, well…I better finish by next month!! Below is where I was at last months meeting.
Embroidery Guild Nametag
It’s such a small piece I can’t believe I didn’t finish!
I joined our local embroidery guild a couple of months ago. One of the things I need to do is complete the name tag so that everyone knows who I am. It’s really nice – they give you all the supplies, all I have to do is stitch it. I had great plans to make it right away! HA! That didn’t happen. This is where I am now:
Embroidery Guild Nametag
I have to be done by the next meeting which is next Tuesday or my penalty is a $1 fine for each meeting I come to without my name tag. I better get on it!! Here is where I was a month ago:
Wish me luck on finishing in time!
I joined my local chapter of the Embroidery Guild. Once you join, you are asked to make a name tag. They give you all the supplies and you are supposed to get it done within three months. Not too hard of a task!
This is the start of mine. The back ground was left blank in the instructions, but I thought it looked too bare so I picked some thread from the box and added it in. Hopefully I can finish before our next meeting.
