...why it's been so boring around here???!!!
This is the reason:
About a month ago I accepted an order for ONE THOUSAND (1,000!) name tags to be used at a Women's conference in August.
Yes, ONE THOUSAND! That's 1,000 felt flowers, 1,000 tule circles, 1,000 2 inch fabric circles, 1,000 1.5 inch fabric circles, 1,000 1 inch felt circles, 834 yards of ribbon, 112 sheets of 9x12 stiffened felt, 1,000 pieces of 1x3 card stock, 12 weeks of work.
All I can say is: This is my first and last whole sale order. I am working in batches of 250 at a time. The second one is almost complete. So, I am only half way done. I love layering the flowers and sewing them onto the felt. My least favorite part?!: sewing the cardstock onto the felt.
Inspired, by a recent project shown on SYTYC, I modified some of our hand towels to make them "stick" to the hanger. Three strips of 2 inch long velcro and a pretty felt ruffle later, here is the way our towels look and "stick" now! No more wet, crunched up towels on the floor! The ruffle is covering the areas where the velcro is sewn on the other side.
