Toronto MQG Quilted Name Tag Gift Swap
-        For each one you make, you will receive one (feel free to make extra if you want to receive more than one)
-        Leave a space for their name (1x3” minimum) out of white or near-white fabric). We will be providing fabric pens at the November meeting to write your name on the nametag you receive or embroider later if you choose.
Specs
-        Should include batting and have a finished edge
-        Max total size = 3x5”
-        To allow people to choose their wearing method (pin, magnet, lanyard etc) please affix a small fabric sleeve (with finished edges) at the back of the name tag, centred and near the top.
o   Using a 2.5x2.5” square of fabric, fold in half, front sides together
o   Sew a ¼” seam along the long edge
o   Press the seam open, and turn outside in
o   Press flat with seam in the middle, then press in half, folding raw edged together.
o   Pin or clip to the top edge, with raw edges in line with the edge of the nametag. Put your binding on as usual.
o   Hand sew the loose edge of the loop down to the back of the nametag, leaving some space for the wearing method to fit inside.

  1. When I try to go to the page with instructions for the drawstring bag, I get an error message saying "page not found" but I was able to access it a few weeks ago. It has been unavailable now for at least the last few days. Has it been taken down?

  2. Thank you for pointing that out. We did a little back end organization that broke the link. It's now fixed.

  3. Hi,
    Is this project still ongoing with TMQG? I am in between projects at the moment and would love to contribute to this worthy cause, if it is still ongoing through the Guild.
    Thanks!
