The story of a lanyard


Now this is something I simply HAVE to show you. I'm afraid I've forgotten who gave me this at Tat Days but it WAS a lanyard for my name tag. 


Tat Days goes so quickly that I didn't have time to change the one I'd got to this one while I was there. BUT since coming home I've worn it loads and loads. No, not because I can't remember my name and need to wear a tag but simply as a necklace. I took the latch keys off and joined the two metal split rings together - least I think that's what I did. I'll check when I go back upstairs!!!!

I've worn it and worn it and no end of people have commented on it too. So, would whoever made it and gave it to me please stand up and wave so I can say my thanks to you personally.  Now, do I have enough money to fly over the pond to do that?  Hmmmmmm!!!

  4. Jane, that is one of the many lanyards I have made. It was part of the bribe package I put together to convince you to come to Shuttlebirds. I'm glad you like it.

    1. I don't like it Patti - I LOVE it. Wear it so often too now it's a necklace. The rest of the package is slowly getting used too.

    2. I can't even remember what all I put in that package. And I hope you do have enough money to fly across the pond to thank me personally. :)

  6. So pretty! I'm glad the mystery was solved before I even read the post! I can only imagine the colors possible with variegated threads. Thanks to Patti Duff for sharing the pattern! I'm going to make a zipper pull, to practice.

  9. I've been eyeing that lanyard pattern for some time! What a great idea to make zipper pulls with it. It happens that my backpack is in need of several new zipper pulls...
