What is any self-respecting sewist to do, but make some? Here is how I made mine:
- 2 3" x 4 1/2" pieces of fabric for the tag
- 1 1" x 9" piece of fabric for the strap
- 1 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of vinyl for the cover (I cut up a nametag holder I had on hand)
- 1 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of Pellon Peltex 72F double-sided fusible ultra firm interfacing (I had some from a previous project, but any firm fusible would probably work)
Sew the two tag fabrics right sides together using a very scant 1/4" seam on both long and one short side.
Turn right side out and press. Tuck in the raw edges 1/4" and press again.
Tuck the Peltex inside the tag "envelope".
Fold the 9" strap piece with the raw edges to the center and then in half again to make the strap. Stitch along the edge. (I used my 1/2" bias tape maker to do the first fold and then pressed it in half again and stitched.)
I didn't think about privacy until after I'd made these tags, but if I make any more, I might try to find a frosted plastic in place of the clear vinyl so my card is not as easy to read by those who don't need the information.
