I love using scraps!
There’s something so satisfying about making use of every little bit of fabric left over from a yard.
I especially don’t want to waste any of the scraps from my Sweet Caroline fabric collection (a collaboration with QT Fabrics - shipping to quilt stores now!).
So I decided to make pretty lanyards with some 2 1/2’’ strips and tiny squares.
These are sewn in the same way as my Pretty Lanyard Tutorial with two exceptions:
I used one 2 1/2’’ strip instead of sewing two strips together
I skipped the fusible fleece so they aren't puffy
I love these new lanyards so much… I put a little pair of scissors at the end of one, and my keys on another. Now I just need a fun quilting event to attend and I can use the last pretty lanyard for my badge!
Also… this week I started a new thing: Studio Chats!
Just a quick video ‘hello’ to you!
I’m hoping that this will be a fun way to keep in touch and let you know what’s going on in my studio. I’ll post the new Studio Chats at the top right corner of my website.
