Name badge and stitching

I forgot to show you the name badge I made for the Burnie Friendship Day.  They had a little competition: make yourself a Christmas Theme name tag you received a little gift.  I got busy and made myself this tag using a Theodora Cleave button:

And, I made Mum one too (sorry no pic, but hers was the same button, with her name):

And, after Mum was jumping around trying to get noticed for her tag, she was presented with the gift basket.  She chose 2 gifts - one for me and one for her.  Here is my Gift:  A lovely rotary cutter purse:

And, everyone who attended also received a decorative tea towel and this cute applique reindeer towel is mine!  Isn't it gorgeous?!

Thankyou to the Material Girls and The Piecemakers for such wonderful gifts and a great day!!

I have been stitching too!  Seems like I haven't done much lately, but really I have!  This little sneak peep is for an up and coming gift:

Hopefully tonight I can get one part done, and tomorrow another!  Fingers crossed!

Making name badges from simple materials is a brilliant idea and presenting them on such occasions is amazing, thanks for sharing.

Brilliant idea you have used for making things so useful. I never thought badges can be used in so many ways. Excellent post.
