Badge Holders For Workers :)

This is what you’ll need:
A small amount of  leftover fabric {or you can use some cool ribbon},
 the lanyard {a little bit over a yard} you can buy it at your local Fabric Store,
glue gun, scissors,
a key ring {I used the one from my old holder}
and  Fray Block {optional}
You can even use an old badge holder
and just give it a makeover!
 
First I made my fabric flowers…
The burlap one I made back in the days of my bathroom makeover.
I used some hot glue while making the flower to hold the fabric together.
Then I cut two thin strips of fabric {the size will depend of the lanyard you get}
I always like to iron my fabric as I go, I found it
easier to work with that way.
{I am sure you can use ribbon instead of fabric}
I wanted mine badge holder to have an organic look and these fabrics were perfect!
After cutting it was time to attach the strips to the lanyard.
Time to sew!
Next step was easy,
I chose {in front of the mirror} where to place the flowers
and then I just hot glued them…
{Did you know that there is hot glue for fabric?
After it was time to choose where to place the pen packet.
I put the fabric on top of the pen to measure how much I would need.
Then I cut the fabric, ironed it and began to sew it.
{You kind of have to pleat the bottom of the packet since the fabric will not sit flat}
Here is a picture…
 Well… at this point I was almost done…
Next thing was to sew the ends of the lanyard together
and make the loopwhere the key ring was going to be,

 

That’s it…!
Now I better go and finish the other two.
