And for better or worse, the outcome of the global recession will be closer regulation of the world's economic and financial systems, for years to come.

I love your idea for luggage tags. Your definitely need a way to spot your black luggage from within the other ones.
Your instructions are great. I hope I can make them as nice a yours. I will send you a picture when done

Thanks so much for sharing!! I love the tags and have decided to try and make some for a breast cancer fundraiser. Will keep you posted!

Great stuff, thanks for sharing this tutorial. Hope you have a swell and safe trip.

Nice Blog. Keep posting more


What a wonderful idea...I know this post is from 2007- but it's relevant to me and my blog post today-
thanks a bunch!!

Question: at step 6, after you turn right side out and press, do you need to sew up the 1.5" opening, or did you just go ahead and sew the 1/4" around and that essentially closed it for you?

My husband and I will be traveling to Alaska this christmas and I know the airports are going to be a mess and we definitely need something to make our bags stand out so I will be making a quite a few of these, and the will make great small gifts for our always traveling family.

I wish I would have found you site before my cruise last week. I'm going on another cruise next month and you can bet these will be on my suitcase so I can spot them quicker. Also, I am going to put a circle of velcro at the end of the vinyl to keep the ID card inside in case it gets lost.

Very cute tags. We need these to make our bags stand out when we head to Orlando next month. One suggestion: I would use a piece of vinyl that matched the size/shape of the rest of the fabric. After sewing it together I'd cut a slit in the vinyl on one end, slightly off-center (meaning not exactly ON the end). That way your paper or business card would stay put. Hope that made sense.

Best of luck with your move!

Very very cute. And good luck with the move!

Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

In response to Pixie's question: wrap the tag around your luggage handle and pull through the ribbon loop. Pull taut. This is the same way you use the paper tags they give you at the check-in counter at the airport. I hope that helps!

if the ribbon is sewn in how does it hook around the luggage?

Thanks! This is a great idea! I added the vinyl and made them a tad bigger (3" x 4" + triangle at the top) so that a business card fits in it. I have no blog so I can't post pix. But I'm having a blast making loud tags!

This is a cool little project! I like it.

Thanks for sharing this helpful idea. Love it!

What kind of sewing machine do you use? I'm in the market for a new one, so I always like to know what others enjoy. Thanks for your great site!

gorgeous and a pretty, practical solution!

Cute as a button tags, and I sure could've used these myself this week when trying to find my bags in the sea of luggage at LAX!

Hugs to each one of you!

I am always amazed at the cute things I see when I peak at your blog.
Good luck with the move and travel safely.

I love your projects...many congratulations on your pregnancy and on your upcoming move! good luck!!! You travel so much you probably already know this, but don't check E.'s luggage if at all possible...the last time we flew they lost our boys luggage and what a nightmare...I learned my lesson!

Good luck! Love the luggage tags! Great idea.

Good Luck with the move, the tags are cute BTW.

Very cute - I made some recently using vinyl. Probably should get pics up of that. Good luck with your move - hope it all goes smoothly!
