Adding Some Embellishment to the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag

Michelle Burke

For those of you lucky ladies with an embroidery machine, I wanted to show you how some of my testers embellished their Just the Ticket Luggage Tags with some great embroidery!  If you are like me and don't have an embroidery machine, there is an idea here for you for embellishing your Just the Ticket Luggage Tag too.  I think the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag looks great showcasing a pattern or design on a piece of fabric, but if you have the capabilities to embroidery, you can use a more plain fabric and showcase the embroidery.

This is a Just the Ticket Luggage Tag that I made.  I don't have an embroidery machine, but I wanted to showcase the elephants in this fabric.

In case you haven't seen the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag before, this luggage tag has a clear vinyl pocket under the flap that a business card fits into perfectly.  The flap covers the vinyl pocket so that your personal information is hidden from view.  A gift card also fits in the vinyl pocket if you want to use it as a gift card holder or you can use it as a gift tag that can then be reused as luggage tag!  

Diane Cullum, of Two Chicklets, made a cheery looking Just the Ticket Luggage Tag in red, white and blue fabrics.  She added a monogram to the flap of the luggage tag, a perfect way to further personalize a luggage tag for yourself or for someone else.  

Sue of Dreamscape Studio made a couple Just the Ticket Luggage Tags.  One has a embroidery design that would appeal to hunters and with its pink camo fabric, female hunters would really love it!  Sue's pretty purple and blue luggage tag doesn't appear to have any embroidery on it, until you lift the flap and there it is, her shop name and logo peeking through the ID window.  How cleaver!

Jenniffer didn't add embroidery to her Just the Ticket Luggage Tag, but instead she added a line of fancy stitching to the flap.  I love how her added stiching coordinates with the fabric that she used for the main part of the luggage tag.  You may recognize the bag that Jenniffer put her Just the Ticket Luggage Tag on - it is her Megan Travel Tote that she made when she tested the Sidekick Tote and Megan Travel Tote pattern for me!  The two look fabulous together!

Linda also added a monogram to the flap of her luggage tag.  I love the purple fabrics she used.  The patterned fabric on the main part of Linda's Just the Ticket Luggage Tag frames the flap and monogram so well!

I want to share another Just the Ticket Luggage Tag that Linda made.  This one looks like it would be perfect for a boy with the Dalek fabric.  It is great to have something to make that is so versatile; it is great for both males and females, adults and kids.

I hope you have seen some ideas here that will inspire you to add some embellishment to your Just the Ticket Luggage Tags!  Please share in the comment section below any ideas you have for embellishing the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag!  If you don't have the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag pattern yet you can purchase it from Craftsy or from my Etsy shop.
