Loosely modeled on winning State Fair Ribbons, these fabric badges would also be great for brides, birthday girls and retirees.
First, I created the text on my computer.
Printed it on iron-on transfer sheets from the fabric store. (Don’t forget to reverse or mirror your image before you print.)
Ironed the text on to cotton canvas which then became the top layer of an applique sandwich (canvas, fill, canvas)
Felt, or felted wool makes a great fill layer with lots of standup body.
I added fun images from fabric sample book purchased at the Scrap Exchange. Then rows of channel stitching or quilting to hold the layers together.
Cut the shape out and use tight zig-zag stitches close the sides.
A quick, easy project, these quilted name tags can be used again and again. They’re very useful if you have an annual spring open garden ( like I do). And they’re fun to make and wear.
Suggestions? How would you make and use a fun fabric name tag?
