Where did December go? Last minute gift tags.

Seriously, where did December go? Does anyone know what happens to all my spare time in December, because if you do, I’m happy to pay to get some back!

As I count down to the big day, it’s time for all that last minute stuff like, grocery shopping, cooking and of course gift wrapping. I will confess I always find wrapping gifts stressful. My sister has always had the ability to wrap even the most odd shaped present and make it look beautiful. I on the other hand, always end up with a tangled mess of torn paper and stuck sticky tape. Well if I can’t make the gift themselves  look pretty, at least I can whip up some last minute gift tags.

Gift tags are actually easier that you think especially if you cheat! I started with a pack of blank gift cards that you can pick up almost anywhere this time of year. Thread your BERNINA with a festive coloured thread and change to a sharp needle (I used a Jeans #80).

Now it’s time to pick your stitches. Keep it simple, don’t pick anything to intense or elaborate. If you aren’t sure, test it out first so you don’t chew up a gift tag.


You can do straight lines, wavy lines or really anything you want it always looks good. And the best part, these 5 tags took all of 10 minutes to do.


Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See you all in 2016.
