gift tag tutorial

I save all sorts of fabric scraps.  Including the scraps from the tiny quilts I have made.  That’s where these little bits come from.

Too cute to be thrown away, right?  So don’t!

I also have on hand the card stock that my bias tape was once wrapped around.  Any crafty paper will do!

Just place the fabric on the card stock, trim your fabric length or width as necessary. Then sew away, on your sewing machine.  I like using a zig zag stitch.

Use that ever handy hole punch and dig through your stash for a bit of ribbon.  I love to see what I find, looking for just that right color.

After you thread your ribbon through you have a nice little handmade gift tag.  I usually stamp the to: and from: on the back with a brown ink.  They also make cute bookmarks for what ever sewing book you might be giving as a gift this year!

oh my!

Yesterday was my birthday and I spent it on the couch, sick.  My mom came over and made a cake for me with my kids and we later ordered some Chinese food delivered.  Not too bad of a day.  I got plenty of rest and was cared for.

Today I am better.  I have spent most of the morning reading my facebook and catching up on emails.  Lastly I check the stats on my blog.  And holy cow! Almost 600 people visited my site yesterday!  Happy Birthday to me!

Most of this was because of Rachel at One Pretty Thing.  She featured my fancy girl headband too!  This is another fun site where all sorts of crafters are featured with tutorials, free downloads, and places to shop.

Thank you everyone for sending me the love on my birthday!  Your birthday wishes truly mean so much to me.
