Here’s what I’ve been working on the last couple of days: some fabric lanyards for a special order. Each one is different made with various fabrics from my stash. Almost all of these fabrics have been used before in pencil cases or coin purses in my Shop. They were made using the same method I shared in this tutorial: Sew a Fabric Lanyard. I think the cherry one might be my favourite!
When I wore my lanyard to ProBlogger Event earlier in the year, I found the pinked edges left lots of fluff. To avoid that a little this time, I threw these ones into the dryer on the airing cycle for an hour or so before I attached the swivel clips. This removed a lot of the fluff.
