    In the hoop luggage tags

    I made these for a friend who loves to travel. I am keeping a few for me too! Very addicting making these.
    i used paracord for the loops. Just burn the ends with a match or other flame. It melts the ends for a nice finish. No ravels!

    the embroidery design is from Embroidery Garden.

    I purchased the machine embroidery pattern from Embroidery Garden. It is a download pattern.

    Oh those are adorable!! I am thinking that if someone went to a different country, you could use fabric that mirrors that place. I just love them. Almost wish I could travel someplace. :-)

    Nice freebies...but they are not machine embroidery patterns "in the hoop". 20 minutes then DONE! (Give or take) .

    I'm confused...sorry don't have embroidery machine.....what is embroidered? The entire tag? All of the leopard spots, etc? They are very cool! Does the thread get expensive for that?

    Great question!

    The entire tag is sewn by the embroidery machine. The edges, the frame that holds the clear vinyl pocket in place, the button hole for the strap. Embroidery Library website has "in the hoop" projects -instructions and videos that explains the technique. It is fun to do. The leopard print is quilting fabric.

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
