|The old and the new|
I wanted something new and different. I also wanted to try something that would attach with a magnet, like the new Rehoboth name tags. And I wanted to make it myself.
I used an old button as a base, having removed the original coating and the pin. I'm not sure where the inspiration for flowers came from. It needed something; my name by itself seemed rather bland.
I like how it turned out. It's not small, so it should be easy to read during a dance. I wonder how well it will stay on. Magnets don't pull on fabric like pins do, but can be knocked loose by a blow. I have some strong magnets, but contra dancing is often a contact sport! I'll try it out on Friday night at the Rehoboth dance.
