A little tutorial : how to make less stressful lanyard

While making lanyard for custom order today, I remember those days when I started sewing again. When WiFi  was not yet heard and modem connection was very slow and making those funny crackling noise ^_^ 

Yes, I learned most of my sewing tricks and tips from bloggers who generously share their step by step pics. I am a visual reader {is that the correct term?}. So, I need tutorial with lots of pics in it. 

Anyway, here's a little tip how to make lanyard less stressful ;)

First you need your DOUBLE FOLD bias tape or any binding tape and the hook. I like using bias though.

{bias tape tutorial video in my previous post)


and then, insert the tape into the hook


now, put the end of the tape, right side facing and sew 1/4" 
open the seam and press it flat 
make sure you put it correctly, or else you'll end up with twisted lanyard {I did once :D }


Now fold the bias tape and start sewing closely to the edge


Now you're almost done
you just have to double stitch around 1/2" under the hook



Voila! you get a pretty lanyard with no stress ^_*


Oops, looks like someone is looking for me. Ha!!


I hope the little trick will help you
Now, time to relax with my fave drama

Until then

Take care and happy sewing
