Wanted to make our guests something unique and special. So I handcrafted fabric luggage tags with our wedding colors! Can't wait to mail these out with our pre-travel brochures in the next few weeks.

Should anyone want more details or instructions, just PM me.

So to make these: You need to cut two 3 1/2" x 5" pieces of fabric. Two pieces of heavy weight iron on interfacing (cut to fit), vinyl for the window (cut to fit) and one 2' x 12" piece of fabric for the strap.

Step one: Take the fabric for the strap (2" x12"), fold in half and iron. Open up and fold each side to the middle and press. (this just helps make it easier to keep the shape while sewing it). Then edge stitch down each side to create your strap.

Step two: Place fabric pieces, right sides together. Fold strap in half and place inside the fabric with cut edges sticking out 1/2". Pin together. Then using a 1/4" seam, stitch around 3 of the 4 edges (leave the side opposite where strap is sewn in open).

Step three: Unpin fabric, and turn right way out. Cut 2 pieces of the interfacing to fit inside. Slide interfacing in, allow about 1/4"-1/2" of fabric at the end. Then turn fabric ends inside and pin (see photo below). Now iron the luggage tag to harden the interfacing.
