Camp Kit done --- finally!!

I don't know what it was about this year's nametag -- I just kept putting it off on the finishing. But, as we leave on Thursday, I was running out of time, and finished it this morning! The stitching has been done, but, I hadn't done the 'finishing touches'. I made the tassels, too -- a first for me!

Here is the front of my nametag, (it's a pocket thing to hang around your neck, and will hold our room key - like a credit card size - and tissues, or whatever), I also made a little needlebook, and a fob to match. Not the best finishing I have ever done, but, it works!

And here is the backs -- camp dates on the back of name tag, and initials and year on the fob. :-)

I better think about packing... My sister says she will not wait for me, and she's the driver! (I bet she would tho...)

Stitching on today: Provence Sampler

You made a great job of your name tag! What a clever idea to make it as a pocket :)

Love the idea of having a nametag as a pocket too - awesome! And I just adore the colour of the overdyed thread you used ... just scrummy! The tassels came out beautifully too - again, that thread just makes a wonderful array of colour in the cording and tassels :D
