Swing tags

Happy Easter Monday and hello April 2013 – oh how the the time is flying this year! It’s that time of the year when one feels they need to have a spring clean and de-clutter the sewing studio space. Whilst trying to do a tidy up, I found plenty of small pieces of wonderful African print fabric that I couldn’t quite bring myself to part with.

Handmade swing tags: With a bottle of glue in one hand, fabric pieces and luggage tags in the other hand, I created these new swing tags for my Etsy items. I think they look pretty interesting, and a nice new ending place for the small scraps of fabric 🙂

Just mention the name of the fabric in your enquiry and I’ll check if I have enough in stock for your design.
