The "Just the Ticket Luggage Tag" pattern was designed by UniquelyMichelle, who besides patterns also has some lovely bags in her Etsy shop. The luggage tag pattern can be found here.
I was very happy that I happened to have on hand colored snaps that worked well with the Typography fabrics.
It was a great pattern. She used actual photos (which I prefer) and detailed instructions that made it very easy to follow. The only little discrepancy I found was that the pattern said to cut the straps from the coordinating fabric, but all of the photo examples showed the straps matching the main fabrics. :) Just something to note when cutting out the first time, although it's not a big deal, because you can choose to make your straps from whichever fabric you want.
The coordinating fabric makes the flap that covers a vinyl ID window, and also the backing behind that window. The flap snaps shut so your information is hidden from nosy eyes.
Jess even designed an ID card to slip into each one!
Below is one of the tags "in action".
I liked Michelle's suggestions in the pattern of using the tags for enclosing a gift card or even some cash for someone. There are lots of possibilities for uses besides uniquely identifying your luggage.
These tags were very fun to make. You could use any combination of fabrics, and they make great scrap-busters! I would only offer one word of caution... making them can be addictive! They go together fast, and the more you make, the faster they go... you might not want to stop! :)
Thanks, Michelle, for a very fun project!
Update: Jess is offering the PDF file for her printable ID card if you'd like one to go in your luggage tags. You can get it here.
