I travel every couple of weeks so having the right luggage and travel accessories is essential. Sometimes I’ll just take a carry-on bag, but other trips I need to check a suitcase. There is nothing worse than watching luggage come out on the carousel that all looks the same. You see the other travelers looking at the same black and blue suitcases wondering if that one is theirs, and then letting it go around just one more time. Some people will tie a bright ribbon around the handle of theirs, but I decided to make custom luggage tags for our suitcases. This is a great project for photos of your pets or kids, or even to display your child’s artwork. I’m showing you both options below.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Choose the photos (or artwork) you want to transfer onto the fabric. Resize it to approximately 400-267. Remember to reverse the image before printing, and then print your images onto the HP Iron-on Transfer paper.

  2. Cut the images out, leaving a border, place them face down on the duck cloth and following the instructions on the HP Iron-on Transfer paper, transfer the images onto the fabric.

  3. Cut out the images, and then cut out pieces of leather and clear vinyl the same size. Use fabric glue to adhere the photo transfer to the leather, and then the clear vinyl over the top (to protect the image).

  4. Using a fabric knife cut a small section of the top of each luggage tag.
