IM­PROV PIEC­ING THE TAG

1

Ar­range two print fab­ric pieces right sides up, with one fab­ric at an an­gle (Fig A).

2

Cut a line through both fab­rics (Fig B). Place pieces RST. Align trimmed edges (Fig C), sew along edge, open out and press.

3

Re­peat steps 1–2 to add a third piece of back­ground fab­ric to this sec­tion (Fig D).

COM­PLET­ING THE TAG

4

Choose one of the tag tem­plates. Trace the out­line onto the im­prov pieced fab­ric

(Fig E). Ap­ply in­ter­fac­ing to the re­verse, fol­low­ing the man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions.

5

To as­sem­ble, layer back­ing fab­ric right side down, the pieced back­ground right side up, and clear vinyl on top. Start mid­way down one side, sew around the tag’s bot­tom half, along the traced line to half­way up the other side. Back­stitch at both ends.

6

Trim around the tag through all lay­ers,

in out­side your stitched line and the re­main­ing marked line. Fold your rib­bon in half and tuck raw ends be­tween the back­ing and back­ground fab­ric. Tack in place.

7

Care­fully lift the vinyl away from the fab­ric and in­sert glitter. Sew along the line on the re­main­ing half of the tag to fin­ish.

Stitch­ing in con­trast threads adds ex­tra im­pact
