Get the kids crafting and get ahead for next weekends Father’s Day celebrations with this jolly luggage label idea.
You will need
Coloured felt – 2 complimentary shades
Small metal D ring
To make, draw and cut out a rectangular paper template with a square on top – ours measured roughly 7 x 10cm, with a 1.5 x 1.5cm square (see the photograph as a guide). Fold the felt in half. Place and pin the template on to the felt, with the small square area perpendicular to the fold. Cut out, unpin the template, unfold and lay out with the rectangles at the top and bottom. Draw and cut out an initial on another coloured piece of felt – ours measured roughly 5 x 8cm (see the photograph as a guide). Position centrally and upright on the bottom rectangle and tack into place with the coloured thread. Push the felt through the D ring until it is in the narrowest section. Refold the felt in half, wrong sides facing. Stitch all around the label with coloured thread. We used blanket stitch, but tacking stitch would work just as well.Read more →
