Batik Paper-Pieced Luggage Tags
A friend gave me these batik scraps and I've savored them, but I don't normally use batiks. Tonight they turned into these 2 little luggage tags as a Thank You gift. Aren't they cute? The auto thread cutter is greatly appreciated while working on this project
These tags are just for identification on the luggage carousel - there is no place for name/address. After a ribbon, batting, and a backing, VOILA !! (See the 2 finished blue ones?) Kinda hard to do any hand quilting on these little items. A stitch or two through the center holds the layers together nicely.
I prefer to send this kind of gift instead of a card.
