Sew Your Own Lanyard

The annual Tucson Gem, Fossil and Mineral Shows begin this weekend,. As buyers for my sister’s stained glass art company, WenchWorks, we have to wear a badge to gain entrance to the wholesale shows.



I made lanyards for our badges using Cute2Carry’s easy
tutorial. The hardware pieces are off old lanyards from a Las Vegas casino, the badge laminating pieces were purchased at Office Max, and the fabric is a leftover piece from the Amy Butler Birdie Sling I made last May.

Oh that is too cute. I have to wear my badge around my neck everyday, and using old hardware from lanyards you don't want is pure genius. Thanks June!

Dang it! I just threw away an old lanyard. It was really hard for me to do, I even thought twice as I tossed it. Should have thought three times! Your lanyards are just adorable!

Awesome idea Junie! I wanted to provide my staff with some valentine gifts, and now I know just what to create for them!

So cool and fun! They make a pleasant change from the printed lanyards you get to see. I've seen some really cute ones that used a baby boys and baby girls print and they were adorable!
