A Grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween. ~ Erma Bombeck
I began my new job the second week of December, 2010. I realize it takes time to get a new employee set up, so I have tried to be understanding. But most of the time the customers don't know that I work there! I don't have a name tag. I asked and I joked, still no name tag. I found Wanda's old name tag, added a post it note, and wore I'm NOT Wanda for a day. No luck.
So last week I asked Barbara to help me digitize a nametag. She did it more than once, getting just the right size with the scallops that I liked. I put it on my jump drive and brought it home.
I did my first sew out on a scrap of cotton. I played around with a sewing image that I had taken from the software, deleted part of it and reduced the size. I added my name in the middle and was good to go.
I have this thing about linen. I love it. So I wanted to do the name tag on a linen scrap. It took a few trials, but I finally got one that was acceptable. I need to do a little more trimming, but I have a pocket on the back that holds Wanda's name tag, and I can use the magnet to attach it to my shirt at work.
Can you tell the little design is a spool of thread and a tape measure? It was really cute, but the design was too dense, in spite of the fact that I deleted a few layers. So I hope that this little nametag will hold up until I get a better inspiration! Now I wonder when I will get the alarm code??
