Could you deliver this name tag to my secret partner ready for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in June
I started off with the idea of a luggage label, but there was very little opportunity for embelishment. But it did give me the idea of making a letter to my partner - complete with frank and postage stamp.
I am rather challenged these days in the eysight department, and this is quite small so whilst it's not perfect, it's the best I can manage! You can't see the name, for obvious reasons, but I FMQ's it and it's come out really well.
I had several collie-wobbles about it over the last few weeks and nearly ditched it for something else. But I was persuaded to keep it, and in the end, I'm rather pleased with it. The embroidery is a bit wobbly, and I didn't leave enough border around the edge, but I hope my partner will like it.
Here's a close up
I just couldn't manage to stitch around the queens head!
It attaches using a magnet so no pins to spoil anyone's clothes. In a previous life I had to wear a name badge, which for some reason (not sentimental I can assure you) I kept when I left the job. I knew it would come in useful one day.
So it's off in the post on Monday to my secret partner. I look forward to meeting you in person, very soon!
