I wanted to think of alternative uses for embroidery besides the usual pillowcase, tea towel, etc..  Plus I travel alot, so I thought this would be cute and practical.  I embroidered my name, address and phone number on the back.

Oh, that's so cute!  I want to go embroider my lucky cat right now!  And yes, I want to see the other side of the tag!  (But maybe you can mask off some of the address and name, if you're concerned about privacy.)

Ask and you shall receive.  That's a good idea about masking the address.  I didn't post the back side because I didn't think anyone would want to see it.  Hopefully my luggage doesn't actually get lost because I'm not entirely positive that the airlines will be able to read it!

Thanks for posting it!  Lettering is always a challenge, and it looks like you did a good job in a tight space.

What a great idea!  Did you do it on felt?

Yes indeed it is on felt.  Acrylic, to be exact.  I think wool would be a little nicer but wanted to save the good stuff just in case it didn't work out like I had hoped.  Of course now my mom wants one so I'll use the nicer felt.
