Last week, I made two Lanyards with fabric scraps again. It's similar to my patchwork string, but I put a cotton tape on the back for this.
I write here how I made them. I used a piece of leather on it.
So to make it, you need,
* Fabric scraps
* 1.5cm(0.5 inches) width of Cotton tape(or Linen tape), 90cm(1 yard) long
* A piece of leather (1.5cm x 4cm/ 0.5 inches x 1.6 inches)
* A pair of rivet
* Swivel snap
* Tool to rivet, hole punch, riveting tool, rubber plate and a hammer
At first, cut your favorite fabric pieces in 3cm(1.2 inches) width, and totally it should be 90cm(1yard) long.
Sew them and cut it in 90cm(1yard) long.
Open the allowances and iron it.
Fold it in the width of the tape and iron it.
Put it on the tape and sew them together at the both edge lines.
I finished sewing.
Before putting the leather piece, glue the two ends together.
I used my favorite Japanese fast-dry glue.
Put it on the one end, and put the other end on it.
Cut a piece of leather, in 1.5 cm x 4 cm(0.5 inches x 1.6 inches).
These are my tools for rivet.
Make two holes 5mm(0.2 inches) from both ends.
Put a swivel snap on the center of the leather piece and put it at the end of the lanyard. Then make a hole on the lanyard to put a rivet.
Put a pair of rivets at the hole, and rivet it. I use this rivet tool and wood hammer.
I wanted to make Japanese taste Lanyards.
But it might be too simple. Umm...
Now I'm out of swivel snaps. I'm preparing two more, but I should wait...
Thank you for reading it.
Have a good day (* v *)!!!!!
