Project Terrain, Part One

20111005_7579

I took the cute mini charms that Kate sent me and turned them into two lanyards.  I made one for me and one to share at my next guild meeting.  I followed this tutorial by my friend Trish at Two Peas in a Pod Designs.  Aren't they cute?  It's a quick, satisfying project that's perfect for those little pieces of your favorite fabrics.  I found the hardware in the jewelry section of Michael's craft store.

Project Terrain, Part One

My daughter's eyes lit up when she saw them.  She said they were just like her teacher's name tags at school.  I bet the aren't pretty patchwork lanyards!  Wouldn't that be a cute teacher gift?

PROJECT NOTE: I used the mini charms as is (2.5") and I didn't cut them down to the 2" that is written in the tutorial.
