Your gift tag will be the talk of the party, when you use these original handmade gift tags. These tags work great with brown kraft paper wrap or those old brown grocery bags you have laying around...just upcycled them and use the inside. These tags are faded, tattered and worn and have all the beauty and charm of the 1940's.
This set of gift tags are vintage nostalgic feedsack prints with a faded solid sage green that show the lovely hand quilting of days gone by . Each tag is adorned with shell buttons and are hand stitched on with sage green embroidery floss. The string ties are sage green.
These gift tags are made from an old vintage scrap feedsack quilt that has been well loved and used and was beyond wear of its original intended use. This quilt was hand pieced and hand quilted around the 1940's. I have upcycled this cutter quilt to make available to you some new, fun, primitive and shabby gift tags that measure approx. 2 3/4" long x 1 1/2" wide.
The quilted gift tags are three layers; patchwork quilt front, batting and a backing, just like a quilt and each has one button hand-stitched on with embroidery floss. The quilted front is adhered to a paper shipping tag for the backing for writing your sentiment and is machine stitched around the outside edge; the quilt edge is left raw and unfinished to give a primitive look. Embroidery floss is added as a string for the tie ons. The colors are such vintage, fun and nostalgic that allows a piece of the past to live on.
These quilted gift tags/hang tags are nice everyday all occasion gift tags or tie ons, can be a special keepsake, use in scrapbooking for journaling, or once used as a gift tag, you can add to your scrapbook to save a loved one's handwriting and message to you or your child, use as a bookmark, use for labeling and organizing. Just use your imagination for other endless possibilities.
These are newly created gift tags/tie ons from a repurposed vintage cutter quilt. Keep in mind that the gift tags have a shabby vintage look and are cut from a previously used cutter quilt and there may be some imperfections such as fabric fading, thinning, loose threads in the seams, areas where batting may show through, spots, stains or small holes that add to the primitive beauty and charm of this item.
