How to make TAGS for knit or crochet garments (Hats, cowls, scarves, etc.)

It's very easy to make some cute add-on tags to sew onto your
knitted or crochet items!  Here are some easy ways to do that!




1.  You can use:  Leather, faux leather (leatherette), grosgrain 
      ribbon, or any colorful ribbons!
      See a video demo here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPgJQ6eciJs&t=2s






2.  Cut a piece approx. 3/4 inch by 2 inches long.




3.  If you would like to personalize it, you can do that with 
     a permanent marker, or a wood burning tool.

4.  Fold it over the edge of your garment, and sew it in place,
     capturing both sides with the thread!

    That's it!  So easy!
