Lanyards

I've been keeping rather busy sewing up some fabric lanyards recently. I have a LOT of fabric that I have no idea what to make with it all, so I thought just cutting long strips of it and playing around making lanyards was in order. I searched online to find a good deal for purchasing the lanyard hardware. I found a bag of 100 lanyard swivel hooks for only twenty bucks... what a deal..
The lanyards come together pretty fast and after making a few I figured I should work on another vintage suitcase to store them all in- and eventually sell. This $3.00 suitcase needed the slightly stained lining removed.... sad to see the lovely colored lining go, but I'm happy with the outcome of the new burlap lining.

I was fortunate to buy a bag of shabby trim that I've been coveting for a while now until just the right project.
 Of course, I had to create a price sign and a paper sign of what was being sold out of the suitcase.
 Finally, the lanyards are all finished... all 100 of them!
It's nice to close the lid on this project and start another! lol... I crack myself up :-)
big hugs,
Cheryl
