My Bag...

And the final luggage tag of 2008 is now complete. I got really tired of making these and I kind of shortchanged the workmanship on this one. This is a design I adapted from a back issue of the Cross Stitcher UK magazine. It's done on pale pink 18 count Aida. I used pink X & O eyelets. Couldn't find the satin cord I like in pink so I chose a pink velvet ribbon for the hanger. The intended recipient loves pink.



The backing fabric is a nice girly print. Thanks to Sandra for sending me this. It worked perfectly for this tag.



And thanks to Claire for letting me know that she is the designer of the Home Sweet Home tag in my previous post. I'm not sure how I found that design since she hasn't blogged about it yet, although it is in her on-line album. Maybe I was googling images.

Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate!

I wish I had seen these when I was traveling so much for my job. Got really tired of rifling through 40 black bags with wheels! A bright pink tag would have been a great solution! Your giftees are so lucky!

Wow! That's perfect! I love the way you finished the lid, It's a perfect match for the skaters!

And the tag is lovely! I was pleasantly surprised to see the fabric, didn't remember it ;o) You're right, works perfectly for the design!

Happy Hanukkah Annie!
