How to Make Thanksgiving Name Tags

Hi,‌ ‌makers!‌  
We are creating name tags today!
Another‌ ‌holiday,‌ ‌another‌ ‌excuse‌ ‌to‌ ‌sew!‌ ‌Making‌ ‌every‌ ‌holiday‌ ‌my‌ ‌favorite‌ ‌season,‌ ‌hehe.‌ Thanksgiving‌ ‌is‌ ‌coming‌ ‌up‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌especially‌ ‌love‌ ‌having‌ ‌friends‌ ‌and‌ ‌family‌ ‌over,‌ ‌eating‌ ‌dinner‌ together,‌ ‌and‌ ‌sharing‌ ‌special‌ ‌memories.‌ ‌Not‌ ‌only‌ ‌is‌ ‌sharing‌ ‌memories‌ ‌part‌ ‌of‌ ‌this‌ ‌special‌ ‌holiday ‌but‌ ‌creating‌ ‌ones‌ ‌too!‌ ‌This‌ ‌means‌ ‌cooking,‌ ‌playing‌ ‌games,‌ ‌and‌ ‌setting‌ ‌up‌ ‌the‌ ‌dining‌ ‌table‌ ‌before‌ ‌we‌ ‌feast!‌  
This‌ ‌year,‌ ‌I‌ ‌plan‌ ‌on‌ ‌hosting‌ ‌Thanksgiving‌ ‌dinner‌ ‌at‌ ‌my‌ ‌house,‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌knew‌ ‌I‌ ‌had‌ ‌to‌ ‌impress‌ ‌my‌ family‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌small‌ ‌handmade‌ ‌details.‌ ‌I‌ ‌have‌ ‌a‌ ‌pretty‌ ‌large‌ ‌family,‌ ‌so‌ ‌right‌ ‌away‌ ‌I‌ ‌knew‌ ‌I‌ ‌had‌ ‌to‌ ‌create‌ ‌some‌ ‌name‌ ‌tags‌ ‌for‌ ‌all‌ ‌my‌ ‌guests.‌ 
These‌ ‌name‌ ‌tags‌ ‌are‌ ‌not‌ ‌only‌ ‌easy‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌but‌ ‌you’ll‌ ‌have‌ ‌the‌ ‌joy‌ ‌of‌ ‌using‌ ‌the‌ ‌free-motion‌ quilting‌ ‌foot‌ ‌to‌ ‌stitch‌ ‌all‌ ‌the‌ ‌names‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌tags!‌ 
For‌ ‌this‌ ‌fun‌ ‌and‌ ‌personalized‌ ‌project,‌ ‌I‌ ‌used‌ ‌some‌ ‌yummy‌ ‌warm‌ ‌colors‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌Autumn‌ ‌season‌ and‌ ‌so‌ ‌I‌ ‌chose‌ ‌our‌ ‌Art‌ ‌Gallery‌ ‌Fabrics‌‌ ‌‌Decostitch‌ ‌Element‌‌ ‌in‌‌ ‌‌Red‌ ‌Desert‌,‌‌ ‌‌Skyline‌ ‌Blue‌,‌ ‌‌Cafe‌ Latte‌,‌ ‌and‌‌ ‌‌Pecan‌ ‌Praline‌‌ ‌for‌ ‌that‌ ‌extra‌ ‌stitchy‌ ‌feel!‌

Have fun making these quick and easy Thanksgiving name tags!

Steps to Make a Thanksgiving Name Tag

Step 1:

Take two (2) 6’’ x 5’’ rectangles from fabric A and one (1) 6’’ x 5’’ rectangle of batting.
Sandwich the three pieces making sure your fabric A pieces are wrong side facing down.

Step 2:

Take the Pumpkin template and trace it with a water-soluble pen.

Pin your pieces.

Step 3:

Switch your machine setting to a zig-zag stitch and start sewing following the marked line.

Step 4:

Now, write the name of the person with a water-soluble pen and switch your machine foot to the free-motion quilting foot.

Start sewing carefully, I like to go back and forth at the beginning to secure my stitch and the same for the end.

Step 5:

Lastly, take a pair of scissors and cut the excess fabric.

Repeat the same for the rest of the fabric name tags and tada! You’re ready for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
