It's a good thing I didn't find the rum yesterday, because I decided to make a luggage tag, following Morah's tutorial. My daughter will need one for her upcoming travels, and I have this fabric that I didn't want to chop up into little pieces.
The crane's head isn't chopped off - it is heading off to the horizon! I found some packaging plastic and it wasn't slippery even without a teflon foot. I had trouble with the buttonhole because the machine was feeding the fabric through, so it pretty much stitched in place forever, but since that part was going to be ripped off anyway, I guess it didn't do too much damage when I had to rip that out.
Whenever I make these - the basket and the tag - I feel like I should make more than one at a time, but I'm glad I restrict myself to one, so that I can learn from my mistakes. The plastic isn't on straight, and there is a bump on the inside by the plastic, but it is still usable.
