Share the love!

It’s almost time to start packing your bags for those Holidays– and that means finding your luggage when it jumps off of the round about.  I seem to search and search for my bags, maybe this time with my own customized luggage tags I can quickly track mine down.

2)   Sew all the way around the quilt block – edges will be raw.  Make sure to tuck in the ribbon on one point in between the layers.

3)  Sew hem tape accross the top of clear plastic for the pocket

4)  Place the plastic on top of the back of the luggage tag and sew again all the way around the quilt block- drop the hem top just a bit from the top edge so it doesn’t get sewn in the next step
