A Customized Name Badge Holder


I had been thinking of revamping my name badge holder (for Houston & other events) for some time. Yesterday I took the one I had had for years apart - none too graciously at that since the fabric was that black sort of rubberized material that frays like crazy until you cauterize the edges. Anyway, I am still not sure why in the heck I just did not make another one completely from scratch other than that the back had a convenient little pocket (for collecting business cards), the grommets for the neck cord were well done ( probably better that I could do), I did not have extra plastic on hand for the 'name card holder' part, and ,I guess , I preferred to not set another small zipper - with limited amount of time I had to play. This in-exactness caused the somewhat not straight edges - but all in all I am happy with the outcome. It will be great to use something a bit different this year. I quilted a fun piece of felt I had left over from another project - choosing one of the thinner pieces - & then added a face bead that I made the other day on the zipper pull. I'll be in style for Houston this year ! Now - what shall I do about some clothes?!
