I have to wear an access tag to work but I've never understood why the tag holders have to be designed the way they are. The lanyard that the office provides has a clip with sharp edges (red arrow), and my arms often get caught on it as I'm a naturally clumsy person. Also, the fabric based lanyard absorbs sweat and dirt so easily in this hot weather, it looks manky and disgusting. Not to mention that it is a plain ugly sight!

I tried looking for a commercially made tag holder but they are expensive yet not very user-friendly; and they don't last.

After a few scratches and losing some skin on my arms, I had to do something about it.

I dug out some fabric scraps I've been keeping for a while, and picked this one - a family member brought some really nice materials back from a trip to India and got some clothes made out of, and I kept the access fabric.

No more scratching my poor arms :)




The process is really simple - as shown here:
