So where I work, supervisors get a badge that has a barcode on it. The barcode allows you access to certain functions on the POS systems that regular employees can't use. But... Our badges are literally a plastic giftcard that they put a barcode sticker on. Ugly. Tacky. And we're supposed to keep our badges on a lanyard around our neck. I decided to make a covering for mine, today, using kogin embroidery! (Ok, so my kogin embroidery book arrived in the mail and I was looking for any excuse to make something!)


This is the embroidery pattern I decided to use. Very simple.


The embroidery bit is done! I left a hole in the design where I wanted the window for my barcode to be.


Finished! I had to trim the card down a little bit, but I intended to do that, anyway.


The whole project took a small piece of 14 count aida fabric, some size three crochet cotton, and metal eyelets.

My sewing machine was arguing with me about the thread I was using, so my sewing isn't as tidy as I would have liked, but it gets the job done: No more ugly gift card hanging around my neck at work!
