Tag It !!!! :))

Hello and a warm welcome to my new and old friends !! :)

While I was waiting endlessly to finish my big crochet projects ( big , as for me ) , I quickly whipped up few crochet cuties .

Crochet tags

Couple of months back , Raj asked me to create a tag for him . He finds it a bit difficult and an irritating task to identify his baggage while travelling . He generally uses some scrap of wool from my stash and ties it up on his baggage . When he asked me to create one , I rejected it outrightly considering it as a small and boring project . Yeah,  I could hear some of you say , ‘ How mean ? ’ Anyways , last week when I was thinking of some quick crochet recipe , since I was in no mood to work on big projects , I decided to make one . It is a simple band made of SCs , with a border of 2 DCs in each stitch .

I embroidered the letter ‘ R ’ on it and stitched few buttons . It turned out to be a decorative tag and he was very happy with it !! :)  I guess this will be of some use to him . Thank God , he can identify me in a crowd without any tag ! ;)

How can I escape just making one ? There was another request from Anshita , all with embroidery , beads and a stuffed one .

Crochet heart tag

 I took this heart pattern from here designed by Kara from Petals to Picots . I made two hearts of maximum size given in the pattern ; embroidered , stitched buttons , joined both pieces and stuffed it .  I made the border with HDCs : 3HDCs in each stitch and 2HDC in the top-middle of the heart . I added some beads at the bottom and the lovely heart was ready !!

Looks better while hanging !

If you turn it around , Ta-dah !! I worked both the sides !! :) I have used the buttons sent by Debi for both of these little things :)  Thanks Kara and Debi !

I also made this flower last month for my daughter’s purse . The tutorial for this can be found  here. I love its vibrant colors !!

Pls ignore the places where I haven’t done proper weaving-in . I haven’t blocked or washed any of these items . For all the projects , I have used 2 strands of Anchor knitting cotton and the border with single strand .  I have found a better way now to get the required thickness as that of Laura cotton. Anchor has luster and is colorfast too , so I find this more cost effective . Your project grows faster and the amount of yarn used for a project remains same even if you use double strands .

Hope you liked my mini projects!! :)

Happy blogging!!
Preeti :)

  22. We also tie yarn on our luggage to identify it -- otherwise I would never know what I was looking for. The idea of a crocheted tag is great but I wonder if someone might think they'd like to have it for themselves? :/ The heart and flower are lovely. Best wishes, Tammy

  27. Hello Preeti

    That tag is a smashing idea! It is also very original ,well at least I haven't seen a crocheted one before. It will stand out on the baggage carousel at an airport for sure.
    Your other makes are just as lovely of course.

    keep well
