Love For A Friend

It's the friends we meet along the way
that help us appreciate the journey.
- Unknown -




Happy day to you, lovely friends and followers!
I hope today is filled with lots of joy and beauty.
{{smiles}}
I'm very glad to have you here
and today I have a fun little sewing project
that you can whip up in no time.




Supplies needed for the fabric tags:

scrap fabric
fusible fleece
lace trim
satin seam binding
stamps and ink
buttons

You will need to cut out two
3 x 4 1/2-inch pieces of fabric.
Trim the corners off so that the fabric looks like a tag.
You will also need to cut out one piece of fusible fleece
that is 2 1/2 x 4-inches in size.

Iron on the fusible fleece to the back side 
of the front piece of the tag.
Does that make sense!?
{I apologize for the low lighting in a few of my pictures}




Using a cute stamp and some ink
stamp something onto a piece of fabric
and then stitch it onto the front side of the tag.




Tuck some lace trim and satin seam binding
between the two layers and pin into place.
Sew along the edges of the tag and voila!
You're done.




Sew along the edges of the tag and voila!
You're done.




If you want you can add some buttons
or other kind of embellishment to your fabric tags.




It's not what we have in life,
but who we have in our life that matters.

You may have noticed in the first picture that I shared
that there is an envelope that matches the tags.
I made the fabric envelope specifically for the tags
so that I could tuck them in something.




If you would like to make a similar envelope 
you can find the tutorial HERE.
Simply adjust the size according to your preference.




You can also sew on a piece of white fabric
and use it to write a message for someone special.





And finally,
here is another envelope and tag set
that I created.
You can find it in my Etsy shop.




Happy sewing and creating!

Hugs and love to you.

Sylvia said...

You make the prettiest crafts, Stephanie. I just love these!

allthingzsewn said...

These are very pretty and very soothing to the eye. Are they to be used as gift tags or book marks? I understand that it is a gift in itself and speaking of friendship. Just what does the friend or recipient use it for?
Maybe just a keepsake. Brain obviously not in function here this morning.

NanaDiana said...

Those are all just darling. Thank you for always taking the time to do these tutorials and sharing them here. I know many crafters that jealously guard their crafts for fear someone will steal their ideas and copy them. You have such a giving heart.

I hope you have a wonderful day. xo Diana

Hello kind Stephanie. As usual, your creativity is so sweet and heartwarming. And with my love for all things tea, these are the bee's knees. I have one thought that perhaps one of your dear readers could help with... Back when you made the sweetest heart ornaments and sent me one, with the friendship stamp on it, I hung it on my bulletin board where I look fondly at it and think of you. After several months, the stamp began to fade. It is not in direct sunlight, but now it is completely gone. The heart still looks sweet, but there may be a long-term solution for your new works; special ink available, etc. I don't know, but there are so many talented ladies here, I'm sure someone has an idea. Again, thank you for sharing your talents. They are so dear!!!!! God bless you and your family - both 2 legged, and four!
Hugs,
Heather

The tags and envelope are so beautiful, a feast for the eyes. You are an inspiration and so generous sharing your ideas. A joy to visit.

Sandra said...

Love the tags but the envelopes make it completely sweet!

Marilyn McLeod @ Pink Paper Cottage said...

As usual, Stephanie, you have come up with something that I love! We all do! Fabric tags.. who would have thunk it? And a fabric envelope.. cute! I've made fabric postcards which are a blast, but not for many years. You CAN send those in the mail too! I think you could send a fabric envelope if it was stiff enough. Love the fabrics you used.. they are so pretty and soft and sweet... and like one of the ladies said, "calming". Where do you get all of your pretty shabby and soft fabrics? Just curious. I haven't sewed much for awhile.. my papercrafting keeps me busy, but I do love to sew too. Have a wonderful week! Hugs.. Marilyn

Susie said...

Stephanie, I love all those cute things you have sewn up . What lovely little gifts. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Cuteness X a billion!!! I LOVE anything in miniature form (except dessert!) and these little tags and the envelope are adorable! I'm pinning this because there is so much you could do with these. They'd be a great little 'tuck in' for things I sell online as a little 'thank you'. So. Thank you! :)

Margie said...

Your cute tags could be used for any occasion.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Such a great little gift - and even better, it can use up bits of stash fabrics that are simply too good to throw away. Perfect to send along with a birthday or other type of card too.

Gail @Purple Hues and Me said...

Simply adorable, Stephanie! You've created another beautiful masterpiece!

Kate said...

So pretty! I love all the fabric that you have used. Especially the blue floral for the envelope and tag.
Kate

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

You, my dear, are so kind and generous in sharing your creativity and talents with us. The little tags and matching envelopes are just adorable. I have my teabags in the cute. little basket that you made. I have special remembrances of You throughout my home. Love and God bless you, sweet friend.

Stephanie, one of these days I'm going to dust off my sewing machine and get crafty. And when I do, I'll be perusing your lovely blog for inspiration (and directions!).

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

What a sweet and easy project to give as a sweet little gift Stephanie! I love stamping on fabric, and haven't done it in a while. Goodness knows I have enough stamps to be doing that, ha! And the little darling envelope you made is precious too! I always love your tutorials, they are inspiring. I am in the midst of cleaning and reorganizing my craft room, a much needed thing. I hope to be more functional in the room once I get it reorganized. I enjoyed getting your email and I will respond soon... I pray you have a blessed and relaxing Sunday evening :)
