Pretty DIY luggage tag made with fabric

If you are looking to meet someone who has had their fair share of luggage horror stories, I’m your girl. I’m always the one waiting when the carousel stops and all the luggage has been passed out.

I can’t tell you how many times they’ve had to make a special trip to my place to drop it off (just call me Greg Focker). One time I even had the pleasure of having an airline attendant motion to a huge pile of luggage so that I could dig mine out myself.

I know I sound bitter, but I promise I’m not! It’s all part of the magic of traveling and flying. But you can make it a bit easier on yourself by making your own DIY luggage tag, thereby making your bag a bit more identifiable (especially if it’s black).

Check out this tutorial from Dom of Crafted – you’ll be heading to the airport with a fun, fabric tag that everyone will compliment you on. And won’t that be a fun way to start your trip? Here’s the tutorial from Dom.


I’m heading overseas today (yay!) and because of this I needed a new tag to put on my bag. Why not make a pretty fabric one with Mod Podge?

You could also use this same process to make gift tags! Make sure you pin this one! You’ll thank yourself come Christmas time!

Print your details onto a piece of card. If you’re printer doesn’t like thick cardstock, you can handwrite your information. Draw a tag shape around your details.

What a great way to identify one's luggage! This is so much more attractive than ordinary luggage tags. There's no mention of it, but would it be advisable to apply ModPodge over the fabric to provide more protection and durability?

Good point Lynn! Absolutely. A clear (brush on) sealer would make it last forever (even over the top of the Mod Podge).
