I wanted to try easy-sew gift tags. I picked a typewriter font and printed a bunch of to/from tags and cut them apart.
Then I picked some (somewhat) coordinating fabrics from my scrap pile and used pinking shears to cut them in small rectangles. Then I ironed the rectangles.
I already had large blank tags from Hobby Lobby, so I used those. Then I sewed my fabric rectangles onto the tags. Then I sewed the to/from paper on top of the fabric.
I tried the tag at an angle:
I learned it doesn't look great if you sew past the fabric, it makes holes in the tag.
I tried a zig zag stitch on the tag.
I thought about using twine, but I decided on metallic ribbon, for a more dressed up tag look!
What an adorable, handmade touch to add to any gift!
