Luggage Tag

I finished my first attempt at a luggage tag. Let's just say that the finish is a bit 'rustic', but that's OK since I used a Prairie Schooler design. It's the Four Seasons from the cover of a recent issue of the Gift of Stitching Magazine. I just stacked two of the seasons on each side. Once again, I used my beloved crop-a-dile to make the eyelet. An id or business card fits neatly inside. I stitched it on 18 ct Aida. The color is 'Into the Sky', hand-painted by Lauren at Sassy's. The hand-painted fabric is much softer to work with than un-dyed Aida.

It's adorable!!! I think I should get myself one of those crop-a-dile's of yours, seems to be very handy!
Great idea of using the four seasons.

How cool is that? And to think, now you'll have to watch to see that your tag isn't taken, instead of the luggage... :) it looks great!

Your luggage tag is just great Annie. So pretty as well as useful! Yay! And I love the four seasons designs.

What a lovely idea, much better than the card thingies I am used to, as patternnuts says, you will have to keep your eye on the tag as well as the luggage lol

What a great idea!! And with everyone having the same color suitcase (black), it makes picking yours out easier.

And here my mom went and colored hers with glitter paint...
