Paper Pieced Name Badges

Each month our sewing club has a “mini retreat” with projects we share with each other. In June I will lead the group in making fabric name badges. I shared these samples with the group a few months ago.

I realized some may want a more directed project so I thought paper piecing would be a good project and an opportunity for those that haven’t tried the technique to start with a small project.

I settled on these 3 patterns. 3-DSCN6819

I didn’t bind or edge finish these and at this time I will leave as is.

Are you a paper piecer? What have you made?

    I may play retreat-project-along with you. I’d like to have a namebadge myself. Our guild is doing sort of an on-going challenge for anyone who makes one but there’s been no real direction or design ideas given or anything. I know I can make it up myself but it hasn’t been a priority project for me. Maybe this summer I’ll work on it…

      This started because our sewing club group became too large for everyone to remember everyone’s name. At least for me. I offered to make samples and head it up. Now I just have to remember to bring it and wear it. 🙂
