Name tag bag

Not too long ago I made a MiPad Case. The pattern was designed by Annie Unrein, and I liked it so much that I bought another of her patterns. This time I made a name tag bag; this is to replace one I wasn't entirely happy with, and I think the new one may be a winner. :)

This bag is from an oriental print I had and is trimmed with a black oriental print for the binding and strap. You may be able to tell that the bottom part of the bag has a vinyl pocket for the name tags we all get at various shows or in our guilds.

The top flap has a zippered pocket, and under the flap is a large inner compartment, which I lined with magenta. The back of the bag has an open pocket to hold a cell phone or pencils, etc. One of my favorite parts of this bag, though, is the strap! It's adjustable, so I'll be able to wear it around my neck or, when my neck gets tired, across my body. Pretty cool, right?

Annie's instructions are very clear, and she also has video tutorials on her site to help in construction. Oh — and I'd recommend getting her finishing kit if you decide to make one of her patterns. The kit has everything you'll need for the project except the fabric and zipper, thus saving you the time needed to find all of the hardware and notions. :)

  1. I had just been thinking last week, while at a conference wearing a pin-on nametag and having to cart my purse everywhere just to carry money and a cell phone, that I should make myself a nametag holder. Reading this blog entry, I immediately scurried over to the site and bought the pattern and finishing kit. Thanks for the heads-up!
