I had so much fun making these cutter quilt tags! They are made from vintage, cutter quilts from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Cutter quilts are quilts that can’t be repaired. They were well loved quilts with worn fabrics and batting sticking out. You can pick them up at garage sales, estate sales, or even Ebay. You’ll pay a bit more on Ebay though. This week I’ll be showing you 3 different projects you can make with cutter quilts, today is the first one. Tags!!!
These tags are super easy to make. You are going to need to decide what size you want your quilt tags to be and make a template. These are 5 1/2in long by 3in wide.
I left out the hole, add the hole if you want. Your making them, make them your way!
Instead of cutting the tag out of the quilt before sewing, I sewed it first with a zig-zag stitch. It was easier for me that way, plus I was able to fussy sew around the damaged areas and save more for the other projects I have coming up on Wednesday, and Friday.
I just stapled some lace to the top, you could also sew the lace to the top.
If you don’t want to make your own, or can’t find any cutter quilts, I have some available in my shop here. Stop back here on Wednesday and Friday to see what else you can make with a well-loved and torn quilt.
