My friend Jen Funk-Weber is currently showcasing a number of small projects that you can finish in time for Christmas giving.
I’m delighted by this clever idea for making dangling needlepoint gift tags, she calls “Noodle Tags.”
It’s a creative way to use up small pieces of canvas you’d normally throw away and to use threads from your stash. The linked tutorial has stitch diagrams and instructions as well as pictures of some other tags.
Only have white canvas? You could color it with paint, a stamp pad, or fabric markers. Or, as one of her tags does, you could sew it to some colored felt or leave it white and use a bright thread.
I simply love this idea for a clever little gift.
