Le Challenge #14 - Small

I have been a very very lucky chicken when it comes to Le Challenge, I am fortunate enough to have won twice, with my Charity Quilt winning last month, so although I have a project I don't think I will link up this time for the small theme.
But, this is what I made, it's the Secret Name Tag for my partner at this years Fat Quarterly Retreat and it has two very small bits of sewing.
A really small sewing machine, with it's very own tiny Aurifil Thread, which I paper pieced from this pattern.
And some super small patchwork, those squares ended up at just under ½" each.
The whole tag finished up at about 3"x 4" and I used some yummy Pam Kitty fabric for the lanyard.
I find secret sewing so difficult, I spent ages trailing the internet and even set up a new Pinterest board for name tag ideas.  I really didn't know what my partner would like as she didn't have many Flickr photos and no favourites to sift through, but I figured a sewing machine is topical for a sewing retreat and patchwork for the quilting bit!!!!! 
It was popped into the post last week, with some scraps and hopefully I will get to see it on my partner at retreat.  
Not long now…….

  1. That is cute and really small! Well done.

  2. That's superb, great job, I'd be delighted with it but my name's not Katie (and I'm not going to retreat :-()

  3. That's an adorable name tag! I'm sure your partner will love it. :)

  4. She will adore this and if not I will change my name to Katie :)


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
