I had to do a little R&D to use purchased placemats for this project. The ribbed texture gives the pieces a sturdy feel, and I could make a bunch, for men or women. The original instructions posted here were for 2 pieces of regular fabric, backed with interfacing,joined & turned. With such heavy fabric, I eliminated the interfacing, used just one piece and serged around edges of tag & strap with wooly nylon. Also, instead of printing on freezer paper or printable fabric, printing was done on card stock. This was because I decided to put a piece of clear plastic (old quilt template sheet) over the top to keep them clean. Figure I could always replace these pieces if someone's address changed. The stock & plastic were attached to prepared tag with a zig-zag stitch. Same issues with the luggage handle cover - 2 pieces of placemat with thin batting in the middle, served with wooly nylon.
