A week or so ago I made a wall hanging for my badges, since I’ve got quite a few now I thought they’d look great together on my wall like this.
It’s been a while since I last used my sewing machine and when I say a while, I mean about 5 years! It was great to get it out and use it again though.
To make this I used a piece of material which came in a set from Hobbycraft that I bought last year, it’s by the brand The Craft Cotton Co.
The material had been a bit creased where it had been folded but this piece had already been ironed a while ago in preparation for making cushions (which I’ve still not made yet!) I’ve still got plenty of material to make them though with the other pieces in the set.
I started off by folding the material in half and cut a small amount off of one end to make it look more square.
I then folded a cm or two of material each side (except for the folded side) and pinned and tacked along those three edges.
After tacking I sewed each side using the sewing machine, including the side that was folded at the start, I thought it would look neater with the stitching going along all of the edges.
To hang it I got a length of wool and tied it around 2 pegs, which I then attached to the material and hung it over 2 hooks on the wall.
I decided to hang it on the wall between my cubes and desk. On it is a mixture of badges I’ve bought over the past year or so – Disney ones from Primark (I previously blogged about them here – Trip To Plymouth & A Primark Haul), a Live Colourfully badge from Jemma at Dorkface and various button badges from Ellis at Pastel Elixir (again, I blogged about them here – A Haul Full Of Unicorns & Other Cute Items). I’m hoping to buy more badges to add to it soon.
What do you guys think? Have you ever made a wall hanging like this before?
