As someone who sews I’ve been pretty ashamed of the state of the lariat I use to hold my work ID card for quite some time. Yet I continued to use it. Never really thought making a new one when it came to sewing time.
Pretty scuzzy looking isn’t it. Yet I continued to use it until tonight.
I was looking for a quick project to do tonight and decided that it was finally time to upgrade to a brand new lariat that wasn’t falling to pieces and knotted to hold it together from where it had worn out.
Of course I picked purple fabric: might as well bring a bit of my favourite colour into the office in the form of an accessory.
This is the result:
Looks a little better eh?
Used a decorative quilting stitch on the sewing machine to jazz it up a bit and hopefully make it a bit more sturdy and longer lasting then the previous one.
I now don’t have to hide the lariat when I walk around the office, yay me!

Oh, that’s great! I like the addition of the decorative stitch. Much better!
Thank you! I’m happy with it!
Definitely an improvement. Good job.
Thank you! I figured it was time to “upgrade”
