Hello! My name is …
I made myself a nametag on the weekend, just in case the excitement of this week’s craft show causes me to forget myself. I will be volunteering at the show on two days.
I sewed it like a normal quilt sandwich, just in miniature. In a way, it is just another mini quilt, but even smaller than a coaster. The only difference is that instead of binding it I added an extra backing (a third layer of fabric) and turned it inside out through an opening before top-stitching around the edges. The extra backing hid any messy stitches. The three layers of fabric and one of cotton quilt wadding make it nice and stiff, ensuring it will hold its shape. It is a whisker bigger than a standard business card.
For now, I will attach it with a safety-pin, but I might look for a proper brooch attachment at the show.
