These are Key Fobs or Name tags, if you will, that my 4 year old granddaughter Arya "helped" me make for Valentines day gifts for her classmates. The kids will only wear their backpacks or carry their lunch boxes to and from their car to inside the school (10 feet) so no worries about wearing them out in public where strangers can see their names. The designs are mine and the fobs are made out of marine vinyl. The 4 long tags on the bottom are her teachers and an aunt. Thanks for looking!

WOW! Not only are these a lot of work but they are a job well done! Love the color of the vinyl, too.
Can I be Arya's new Aunt Toogie?-lol- I really like the teachers and aunts long ones.-lol

Great work.A lot of patience needed for sewing & cutting the vinyl as well as setting the cam snaps in place.
There are some unusual names on the tags too.

They looks fantastic. Lots of cutting. What do the backs look like? Do they have vinyl on the back?

Thank you! Yes, the backs are plain red with just the outside outline stitching showing. They were a bear to sew with 2 layers of the vinyl, and just as bad cutting them out. Its hard to make nice cuts with vinyl. Its like cutting felt. Everything wants to look raggedy and pointy.

These are wonderful!!! How did you do the teacher's key fobs, did you use Embird to design them? Everyone will love their gifts!!! Hugs, Laura

Thank you Laura. I used Stitch Artist in Embrilliance. To make the teachers fobs, I added a "knockdown" design to each one of them, and changed the knockdown to a "line" Bean stitch, which is the outline around the name. It was pretty easy. I tried doing a more complicated stitch outline (sashiko) , but I had too many problems with shredded thread so I switched back to the bean stitch and slowed the machine down to a crawl.
