Luggage Tag

Luggage TagWho doesn't love going on vacation?  I even think that the "planning" of the vacation is almost as fun as being on vacation.   Until we actually leave for vacation, there's a lot we can do in anticipation.  How about creating your own unique luggage tag?  This is an easy, quick project that will get you excited for your next vacation, but it's also very practical too.  Too many times we have similar looking luggage and this will help you easily locate your bag on the airport conveyor belt or, if your luggage should become lost, it can hold your contact information.  Plus, since it's made of fabric, it's more durable than the paper tags found at the check-in counter.   The best part is that you get to pick your fabric for a fun look that says, "look out, world!  I'm going on vacation!"  Learn how to make this luggage tag today.

    making the luggage tags will be a breeze because the instructions are clear and the tutorial is really well done. what impressed me was how easy it was to get the pattern downloaded. i am about as computer illiterate as they come and i usually end up having my husband do it for me., but i did it on the first try. I AM IMPRESSED!!! thank you

    I printed the luggage tag pattern and noticed that the luggage tag holder says to cut 4 from fabric. I believe you meant to put cut 1 from Vinyl.

    Hey Professor! I have been trying out different techniques for making my own luggage tags since last year with mediocre success. I am excited to try your design. Would it be possible to adapt this to other shapes, such as a circle?

    You can definitely backstich. If I’m going completely around the whole thing, sometimes I don’t backstitch and then just overlap my stitches when I get back to the beginning again, which works just as well. Thanks!

    Hi Prof. Pincushion,

    Great project! Great website! I’m a beginner and this is an invaluable resource 🙂

    I’m curious though: When top-stitching the base, it seems you don’t do any back-stitch. Is that because there is little stress on the seam? Or is it sufficient to catch the thread once you’ve gone around the whole thing?
