Free Pattern: Pineapple Luggage Tag

Free Pattern: Pineapple Luggage Tag

Perk up your luggage with this jazzy little number–a pineapple luggage tag made from leather and personalized with your initials. Inside is a card for your name and contact information in case the dreaded loss-of-luggage occurs. I am so excited to share this project with you. It’s simple, takes less than an hour to make and has a clean, polished look.

Materials • Pineapple and card pattern (laminate card) • Two 4 x 6.5″ pieces of leather, 1.3-1.9mm thickness (Etsy has a great selection of leather scraps) • 15″ of leather cord • Thread • Scissors

She also opens up her bag for another edition of What’s In Your Bag? Read on? We think so: Knitting and crochet projects are an excellent diversion for any plane ride. The repetition of stitching is soothing and relaxing, which is exactly what most of us are looking for on our vacations.
