At Embroiderers' Guild we are all encouraged to make a name badge so we have a better chance at remembering names! It's really great for me - I meet so many new people at WI alone I can't really cope with trying to remember any more!
Here is my badge ...
I stamped my name on to paper and traced it on to the plain calico, then satin stitched over it in black cotton.
The tiny hexagons are paper-pieced. Very fiddly and not too symmetrical, but very cute.
I'll be wearing this to WI as well - we've started giving out sticky labels there to help everyone get to know each other.
