Suitcase Tag

Is your suitcase hard to find in a crowd of suitcases? A colorful, unique suitcase tag is the answer. Many people tie bright colored ribbons to their suitcases. You need something different. Made from fabric, these tags are easy to spot in a "sea of bags". Plus, they are quick and easy to make, and are a great way to use up scraps. Make them up as gifts or "stocking stuffers". Mix and match fabrics, use holiday fabrics or choose a theme. Use bright colors to help find your suitcase quickly.
