Scrap busting Luggage Tags by Michelle from Uniquely Michelle {November Destashing}


“Mrs. H’s Big November Destash, say it isn’t so, I love my stash and I am sure I will use it someday, but just not today!”

This is what I think when I look at my fabric stash. I LOVE fabric and have a tendency to buy it faster than I use it – does anyone else have this problem?!? When I think about it, I know I would rather see my favourite fabrics made into something that I will love and use or that I can give to someone else to love and use. I also know it is good to use the fabric in my stash because fabric designers are always designing new fabric lines that I end up falling in love with, so I may as well use some of my stash to make room for new fabric. ;)

By the way, I am Michelle Burke of Uniquely Michelle. I love to sew, buy fabric and design patterns for bags. Sewing is something I have loved to do for over 30 years when I started sewing as a girl with my mom and grandma. For the Big November Destash, I wanted to contribute a quick and easy pattern that could feature some of my favourite fabrics and maybe even use some of those small scraps that I just can’t seem to part with.

The Just the Ticket Luggage Tag is perfect for stash and scrap busting. It is easy and fun to make and the flap (to keep your personal information out of sight) is a great place to add some embroidery or to showcase a favourite design on a fabric.


The Just the Ticket Luggage Tag has a fun, ticket shape. The main body of the luggage tag has a clear vinyl pocket that fits a business card perfectly. The flap snaps over the top of the vinyl pocket keeping your personal information hidden from view. Use the sturdy strap to loop the tag around the handle of your piece of luggage and you are ready for your next vacation or business trip. Your Just the Ticket Luggage Tag will be easy to spot among the sea of black luggage and it will add your personality to your personal, black luggage. (How did I know you own black luggage?)

The Just the Ticket Luggage Tag would be nice as part of a matching set with a travel bag, like Megan Travel Tote by Uniquely Michelle or Mrs. H’s Weekender Travel Bag. How stylish to travel with beautiful handmade travel bag and a matching tag?

Although the obvious way to use the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag is to identify your luggage in a personal and unique way, another great way to use this tag is as a gift tag. With the holiday season coming up, the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag makes a perfect gift card or cash holder as well. A gift card or some folded paper money will fit in the vinyl ID pocket under the flap. I think adding some cash to the Just the Ticket Luggage Tag is a creative way to give newlyweds some spending cash for their honeymoon.
