Shabby Chic Fabric Tag

Can you believe it is April already?  This week promises to have many April Showers in the forecast.  After a rainy start to the weekend, today is sunny and crisp.

My project today is my first attempt at a fabric tag.  It is a larger size tag.  No sewing involved.  Everything was attached with FabricTac glue.


For the base, I glued two pieces of felt together and then covered it in a lacy fabric.  I used two pieces of felt to provide a sturdier base.  A ruffled trim was added to the edges.  Next came various other pieces of lace and trims around the edge.  Appliques were glued to the tag.  Then, the embellishing began.  The flowers, frame and butterfly are from Prima.  A seam binding bow was placed at the bottom accented with a pearl cluster.  Little leaf-like pearl accents were placed at each corner.  A seam binding loop was attached to the back for hanging.


You may notice that the ruffled trim has an iridescent quality to it.  Gives the tag some added sparkle.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I appreciate the kind comments you leave.  Wishing everyone a relaxing Sunday and an enjoyable week ahead!

  9. Wow! Patty, your design is amazing, and I know it must have taken a lot of time and patience! (Although I use it, Fabric Tac is not my friend, but then I am not a fan of glue!) I love the butterfly in the frame--such an wonderful touch among all this lovely lace and pearls--breathtaking! Hugs
