Fabric Elements™ Travel Tags

When it comes to traveling and baggage, why not add something special.  Here I created two tie-on tags to make my luggage stand out and easier to locate.

For the tags, I used two of the techniques found in the "Techniques for Mixed Media" booklet that is available with this line of Fabric Elements™by Fabric Editions.

One used the patchwork technique with several of the fabrics and the other was using the fabric fusion process.  With both techniques, paints were added and muslin fabric was applied to the backside to create the tags.  Some machine stitching was also added to each, along with a fabric tie.  NOTE: Refer to the photo below for marking and cutting the opening for the tag information. Finishing the tags can be done with sewing or glueing. To add protection to the name and address, insert a piece of clear plastic to the inside opening.

There is a challenge going on for anyone to enter.  Details can be found on the  Fabric Editions Blog. A very nice prize awaits the winner!
