I have been using this lanyard for almost a year now and it is holding up great. I probably need to give it a good washing to get rid of the ring around the collar. This is a simple tie from a bundle of fat quarters from moda fabrics. I thought it was pretty enough to reuse it somehow and come up with the lanyard idea. A simple french seam catching a key ring. I estimate I have less than $1 in this project. And I use it everyday. You could dress this up a bit by adding a nice strip of moda fabric behind the twill tape logo. It would accentuate it nicely. Happy Sewing! I would love to hear what you do with your fat quarter ties from the fabric manufacturers!
