This year, while at convention, I am staying with three other Hand Stamped Sentiments Designers. We rented a house and I am so excited!! So, I wanted to make them each something spacial. I decided to make them each a lanyard using Stampin' Ups Essentials Designer Fabric.
So, I wanted to do a tutorial to show you how fun these are to make!!
I am a very basic skills sewer, and I don't always do things right. My sewing usually leaves something to be desired! These were very easy and got easier after each one! They truly can be made in about 20 minutes! Please forgive my 1. incorrect sewing terms, 2. my nasty broken nail, 3. my thrown together specifics!!
Materials: Two strips of fabric, about 4" X 18", this is adjustable, and another strip of the same fabric 4" X 6", a "Lobster Claw",that's not what it's really called, but it was in the sewing notions department at my local craft store with the belt buckle and Velcro! (HERE is a link to the exact one I used), sewing machine, iron
1. Cut two pieces of fabric that are 4" wide and... Well, I just cut the length of a fat quarter and then trimmed it once it was sewed the desired length. So, I would guess about 4" X 18".
11. Place that seam you sewed that joined the two pieces at your neck. The other pieces should hang equally down your chest. This is where I would snip it if you felt like it's too long. Yes, you've already sewn those ends, but it really doesn't matter. Look at your lanyard and imagine how you want it to lay. I wanted the right side to lay flatly over the left side. So, this is how it should look.
18. Lay it in your machine and sew a big square and an X on the front.
And, YOU'RE DONE! :-)
If you make these, I'd love to see them! :-)
