DIY Leather Tags – Tutorial and free SVG

leather tag tutorial

Fall is when I pick up my knitting needles again and enjoy cozying up on the couch with a knitting project. I love the look of leather tags on knit/crochet items. I came up with this DIY version that is easy to create at home with some leather and heat transfer vinyl. I am giving you the free SVG file below too!

I made my tags out of leather from a thrifted bag. I am always on the lookout for leather bags and jackets when thrifting! To make these tags you will need leather (or faux leather), Heat transfer vinyl, my free cut file which you’ll find below, and a hammer and nail.

First you will cut a 1 inch by 2 inch rectangle out of the leather. Then using the hammer and Nail you will punch a hole in each corner of the tag. Be careful not to punch too close to the edge or the hole could rip. Use a piece of scrap wood under while you hammer.

Now you will cut your design out of vinyl and apply it to your tag. Make sure when weeding the vinyl to remove the outline as shown below. It is a bit tedious because it is such a small piece. I used a hair straightener to apply my vinyl to the leather. It works great for small applications like this! I just put parchment paper between the straightener and the leather.

Now you get to sew your finished tag on and admire how professional your handknit looks!

If you make your own tags I’d love to see how they look on your hand knit or Crochet creations! Tag me on Instagram @handmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog
