Upcycled luggage tag off the cuff

With a bit of inspiration from Pinterest, I made two luggage tags using cuffs from cast-off shirts. I purchased shirts in women’s and larger boys’ sizes. The cuffs from men’s shirts seemed a bit too large for the project.

I sewed along each side of the cuff to create a pocket for a card that lists the luggage owner’s contact information.

I replaced the buttons on one of the tags to give it a bit more personality. I cut the neckband from the shirt and used it (with its convenient buttonhole) as the strap to wrap around the suitcase handle.  I’ll demo this project at my local Make It, Take It evening at the end of this month!
