LET’S GET STARTED!
Step 1: Prepping
Go grab the pattern here! The pattern is 100% free, but you do need to add it to your cart and checkout. Then, it will always be available to download from your account. The pattern is a no trim pattern; if you need help putting the pattern together, pop over to the faqs and troubleshooting page , check out the blog post here, or ask in our Facebook group .
Print and assemble the pattern. Alternatively, you can use the projector file if you’re using a projector. There are 2 pages to print out OR cut one 3″ x 36.5″piece of fabric. Pattern layout below:

Cut 1 piece in your fabric of choice.
Step 3: Pressing
You’re going to press the fabric as if you’re making bias tape. Press fabric in half, wrong sides together. Open the fabric and press the edges to meet in the middle crease.
Press in half again. Edgestitch along unfolded edge OR edgestitch along both long edges.
Step 4: Adding Swivel Clip
Fold in half with right sides up. Place the short ends on top of each other matching raw edges. Baste bottom edges together.
Slip the swivel clip over the fabric. Then fold the short end over 1/4″ and another 1/4″ so the raw edges are folded under. Edgestitch to hold the clip in place.
Your lanyard is complete! These are so quick, and a great way to give a personalized gift to people on your list.
