Stashbusting - Badge holder

Another long overdue project: I've been needing a lanyard for quite sometime now. Those supplied by our facilities department are let's face it pretty basic and ugly and were driving me up the walls, especially after I noticed how several of my shirts developed holes where the metallic parts kept rubbing on the fabric. I recently lost quite a bit of weight and had to buy new shirts. It was time to take action! No more holes!
Thankfully I had all the supplies on hand: clear vinyl, cute chocolate damask print, bias tape maker.

A little bit of planning and a bit of sewing, I have now a great looking lanyard, that not only holds my badge and a code card on the back side of it, but also has a loop for the key to my office and my jump drive.

Simple... Why didn't I think of it earlier. Oh and I have 3 requests to make more of those for my work colleagues. 


  1. That is the cutest lanyard I've ever seen! Great job!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a great week!
