What's New?
I have been playing around with my button id badges. I have to admit they are SO FUN to make...I love mixing the colors and patterns! I just made 50 new styles using some new fabrics I just received from Lakehouse! One of my favorites are the hydrangea leaves and the cupcakes (of course:).
The "knitty" gritty...
-The reel comes with a clip on back and badge snap on id holder
-Retractable cord extends approximately 24"
-These are great to clip onto your pocket, purse or lanyard
New Id Badges
But, if you are a DIY-er, I also made the tutorial on how to make them! DIY ID badge tutorial

Fabric Knitting & Crochet
Knitty Fun Fact...
Most historians agree that knitting originated with male Arabian sailors and was basically a male-only craft until fairly recently in it's history. In many non-western cultures knitting has remained prominent amongst men and is now considered a unisex hobby.
