How to sew DIY luggage tags.  Travel season is about upon us so I thought I would create this tutorial on how to sew DIY luggage tags.  You will never miss these on the luggage carousel when you use fun fabrics that stand out in a crowd.  I, of course, used some fun remnants for my luggage tags but if you don’t have a stash of remnants like mine head over to Fabric.com and Hobby Lobby to find exactly what you need for sewing DIY bag tags of your own. This is a beginner sewing project.

  • Luggage Tag Pattern
  • Two 8″ x 8″ pieces of fabric
  • Two 4″ x 6″ pieces of fabric
