Snowball Nametag

Fabric/Supply Requirements

1/8 yard of Dark Value fabric
1/8 yard of Light Value fabric
3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ scrap of batting
Fine Tip Permanent Marker/Fabric Pen
Safety Pin
Coordinating color thread for topstitching

Cutting Instructions

From the light value fabric, cut:

(2) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

From the dark value fabric, cut:

(4) 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″


Snowball Block Assembly

Mark the wrong side of the dark value 1 1/4″ squares in half diagonally once.

Lay a marked square on a light value 3 1/2″ square, aligned to one of the corners with the marked line oriented across the corner.

Sew on the marked line. Trim excess fabric a quarter inch from the marked line. Repeat on remaining corners. Press away from the center. Block measures 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ unfinished (with seam allowance).

Name Tag Assembly

Fold the Snowball block in half and press a light crease for a writing guide. Write your name across the center of the block using a fine tip permanent marker/fabric pen. Practice on some scrap fabric to get a feel for writing on fabric. Sometimes it works better to draw a line lightly and then go over it a second time to darken the line. Heat press the ink unless otherwise specified by marker manufacturer.

Layer together the Snowball block right side out, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ batting square, and light value 3 1/2″ square right side out.

If you want, set your machine to a zig zag or other decorative stitch. Sew around the edge of the name tag. Attach with a safety pin and wear it to a quilt show, a quilt guild meeting, or to a class at your local quilt shop!
