Luggage tags are the fastest way to embroider a custom gift for someone! Today I’m going to show you how to embroider on a Leather Luggage Tag from All About Blanks.

TOOL AND MATERIALS
Hoop sticky stabilizer with paper side facing up. Using a stright pin, mark an “X” in the center to score the paper, careful not to punch through all layers. Gently peel back the paper to reveal the sticky adhesive stabilizer. Discard the paper.
Place the hoop over the Hoop Mat and using the center thick lines from the mat and the hash marks from the plastic of the hoop, mark the center of your stabilizer.
Remove the loop from the tag and set aside. Open the front flap. Find the center of embroiderable space on the luggage tag front and place a Placement Sticker. Align the sticker and the mark on the stabilizer. Push the tag flat down.
Thread the machine and insert a brand new Embroidery 75/11 needle.
Find embroidery design or lettering which will fit within the area. Use your tracing tool or other means of placing a design onto the tag. With my BERNINA 790 PLUS I used the edit screen and moved my needle placement until the needle was directly over the placement sticker.
Once the placement is good, remove the sticker and stitch.
Notice the smaller hoop I used for the turquoise luggage tag. It cut down on the amount of stabilizer I used, however, there wasn’t a lot of “Sticky” for the tag to rest on either. I felt like I had to “babysit” the hoop and machine.
Once stitching is complete, remove the hoop from the machine and gently tear away the luggage tag from the sticky stabilizer.
Use a straight pin or small scissors to remove the adhesive off the back of the tag. *NOTE: The slower you remove the luggage tag, the better the results in not getting leftover stabilizer stuck on the back.
Slip the loop back into the tag and off you go!
I hope enjoyed this project. Remember you can find all your blanks at All About Blanks!
