Sewn Gift Tags


For the past few years I have made printable gift tags for you to print out for tagging your gifts. I had some fun with them and made them into stitched gift tags. They are great for using up lots of little trim scraps as well as buttons and fabric.

Here's what you'll need.

Gift Tags Printable
Printable fabric
Fabric and Trim Scraps
8" Ribbon for hanging
Fusible Webbing
Fusible Fleece


First of all, this is kind of a free for all project, anything goes so there aren't real specific instructions. But here's basically how to make the tags.

Print the tag document out onto the printable fabric sheet.


The tags measure approximately 3" x 3.5" so I cut the fabric for the backing to be 4" x 4.5". You'll need to pieces per tag as well as a piece of fusible fleece the same size.


Iron the fleece to the back of one of the squares.



 Using the paper backed fusible webbing adhere the sheet of printed tags. Trim the tags to size. Iron  on to the front of one of the squares.


Place the front of the tag onto the fleece. Cut a piece of ribbon for the hanging part of the tag, fold it in half and slide it in-between two layers of the tag. Pin this in place.

Using your machine sew around the edges of the tag and the printed tag to secure. Here's a great chance to use some of this decorative stitches on your machine.



Sew any trims or ribbons on as well. Hand stitch any buttons or embellishments on and you are finished!


Happy Holidays!

  2. Gorgeous thank you. I printed them onto paper and then glued and sewed them onto fabric tags. They look fantastic on plain brown craft bags with handles.
