Luggage tags

Hello everyone! How have you been?

This week was absolutely crazy. So many new clients. It seems everyone's New Year's resolution this year is to file taxes on time.

I am however glad that I got to spend some time sewing and making new jars today.I feel so refreshed!

Remember when I blogged about luggage tags? I made these and gave them to my brother and his wife for Christmas. They will be traveling in a little less than 2 months, so I am sure they will come in handy. These tags look better than using a bandana or a ribbon to identify your luggage, don't you think? And they are super easy to make, even a beginner can finish each tag in about 30 minutes tops.

I found the tutorial at Joann's website, but ended up modifying it a bit. I used fabric instead of ribbon. Looking back, I think I should have used a layer of batting between the layers of fabric, to make it a bit sturdier. But oh well, live and learn right?
