I visited the blog of Emma Varnam and saw a fantastic make that I just had to do - right away, not just because I liked the look of it but while packing my work bag for this afternoon I found that my lanyard had broken and I shoved the clip end into my sewing box for something and found a working one that was red.
I thought mmm that isn't going to go with all of my work clothes so I made this.
Crochet beaded lanyard, I am still kind of stuck with the red card case but I can change that next time I am in the office. 45 mins from seeing it, commenting on it and then making it. Prefect.
