Now it’s time for the second Christmas Wrap-up post. This year my sister and I each made something for our Mom’s stocking. She had said before that she’d like some luggage tags so I volunteered to make her some.
An elderly lady in our church had given us two large trash bags full of fabric remnants and scraps. We went through and ended up keeping one trash bag full of fabric we liked, we donated the rest. I looked in the bag and found three different cute fabrics that I used to make her luggage tags.
Luggage tags are a great thing to make for a gift. You probably already have plenty of scraps you could use and they are super quick to make. I’d estimate that it takes about 30 minutes to make each one. You can speed up the process by making several at a time. While it’s a lot faster if you’re making them with the same fabric (so you can sew all of them at one time without worrying about changing thread) it’s still faster because you can cut them all out at the same time and fuse the interfacing.
So now that you know how quick and easy they are it’s time for you to make some. I used a tutorial from Skip to My Lou which you can find here. To read more about how made mine (including why I used page protectors for them) read my first post on luggage tags.
