The badge which i made!


Here is the badge that i made for 'Sew It Together'. Its for Becky. I enjoyed making it too. Cross stitch is a personal love of mine. The pattern for the scissors and letters in the name was from a book called 'Made In France'. Last year i also learned how to crochet with 3 ply polycotton which is where the idea came from for around the edge of the pin cushion. The name badge will attach onto our lanyards and once the event is over (unpick the clip on the back) and Becky has scissors and pincushion for her mobile sewing time which she should never lose because it has her name on it.

I'm glad that i participated in the name swap. Now i have to make five items for the swap on the day of the convention. I have a few ideas but this week i have to get cracking.
