Yes, as crazy busy as I am I took the day off. More about the crazy busy later (in another post) but more about the day off right now!
Recently the guild held a contest for creating the show name tags. Well, the one that won (weirdness there huh) was a badge nametag sort of holder. And there were flaps and foldy things, and applique, and... and... and... kind of a lot of work in that badge holder pattern. Someone made up a very similar pattern with much easier directions -- like the super simple version. And, somewhere in the middle of all that is where Nancy and I landed today. We created our own in a strange wing-it kind of way. We were supposed to have these finished for tomorrow's meeting -- as part of the show committee we really need to set an example for the entire group to get theirs finished as well!
It was a great day -- Nancy had been up north for over a month and it has been forever since we've sewn.
And after all day, two patterns, one redo, multiple goofy laugh-offs, two wtf's, and a nice glass of sangria, here is where we ended the day. Nancy used a nice pink fabric with birds, bees, dragonflies, and all kinds of wonderful. Me, I used green, yellow, and blue polka dots - so not me, I know, but it totally matches the show logo!
Big deep inside pocket behind that flap:
Super cute clear plastic with finished edge of fabric:
And even back pockets for business cards and a pen:
Yep, that's it -- and yes, my straps are attached is the most basic way possible, but hey, it's due tomorrow!
