Here is the next set(s) of embroidered tags, you are all getting the hang of this now, yes? So I’m advancing to a bit more challenging patterns, most of these were found in vintage French Sajou embroidery booklets on PatternMakerCharts (link below):
I really wanted these to be embroidered in red, and the only red thread in my stash is really a bit too thick… seeing how nice the tags came out when the thread was a bit thinner (like the alphabet tags and the heart tags) I’ll definitely choose a thinner thread if I do more of these:
I used the Sajou tags as flip sides, making these tags really nice on both sides, they do actually look and feel quite exclusive 😀
- Print the tags onto matte photo paper (mine is 170g paper) or cardstock
- Use a needle of something sharp to pierce all the white dots
- The red dots are guidelines to show you the symbols, they should all be covered with an X (one stitch)
- Embroider with floss or thin crochet thread (I used cotton crochet tread, mine was a bit too tick…)
- Glue the sheet to a piece of thin cardboard, I used a cereal box and spray glue, let dry.
- Cut out the tags.
- If you want flip sides, cut them out individually and glue them to them on.
- Punch the holes, string and hang.
