Fat Quarterly Retreat Name Tag Swap

I somehow found time to make the name tag for my swap partner over the last few days. I would have liked to have sewn the pocket lining and the top a bit neater, but I think it’s OK, unpicking it feels worse as the stitches are tiny…

The name is blurred out so the recipient doesn’t know it’s theirs until it arrives. I put a little pocket in the back for fabric/beer money too!

    Hi Kerry! That’s beautiful and fantastic idea to add little pocket! Last night I had your Wallander blocks in my mind?! Wondering why? x Teje

    Looks great, and if it’s coming my way, i hope you at least put in a tenner for beer/fabric money?!?! ;o)

    I love that. I really want to make something with a zipper. I’m new to sewing/quilting, and I just haven’t branched out into garments or bags. This looks like a nice beginner project, Thanks for the inspiration!

    The pocket in the back is inspired. The front looks gorgeous.
