Valentine gifts for grandkids!


These tags are for luggage, gym bags, music bags or sports bags!

I've had the embroidery applique designs for several months and kept delay making them as I had not done anything like that before.  (It uses the heavy stabilizer inside, so it's pretty thick.)

However, once I got started the instructions were very easy to follow.  The designs are from "Tag-A-Long" Embroidery Collection by Hope Yoder.

You can't tell, but these tags are 5-6" long, a nice size.  I am going to get some ribbons to tie on the flip flops for the girls and maybe a chain for Jake's.

There is a danger of having name tags on kid's bags (everyone is aware of those dangers I think), but in my grandkids' situations they are never anywhere that their parents aren't nearby. 

They turned out so well, that I think I'll be making me a new ID tag for my quilt guild!  Now to go get something (candy??) to go with these tags!


  1. Very cute and creative tags!! :) I saw them on pinterest which brought me here. I don't know quilting and I am more into crochet and crossstitch, maybe, I will give it a try using felt. Thanks for sharing!!
