I made a lanyard.

I got this idea when I saw a photo of Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts who was attending quilt market in Pittsburgh. She was wearing a beautiful lanyard. http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2014/05/to-market-and-back-again.html. Sorry about the link. I’m having trouble getting the “title” part to work when I insert the address. Oh well.

I took one of my Fat Eighths and went to work:

I cut a 3-inch strip along the length of the Fat Eighth.

Overlapped the two end pieces, matching the same stitched sides together.

To make it lay flat around my neck, I twisted it at the back.
