IN THIS POST I’M SHARING DIY Leather Cricut Luggage Tags WITH FREE SVG.
The last time I made new luggage tags was last February, more than a year ago. I used them for more than three trips and they survived them all without any hint of falling apart (unlike the first luggage tag that I purchased several years ago). They just need some washing now and they’d be good to go. But the problem is, I forgot where I left them because over the past year I’ve been to more than 3 countries and my stuff is scattered all over the place, literally.
The point is, I needed a new luggage tag.
And since this time I had my Cricut, I had more creative freedom to try out some totally unique luggage tag design.
And that’s how the Leather Cricut Luggage Tags tutorial was born.
Made from black and glittery faux leather with a cut-out overlay, this is one luggage that’s TOTALLY going to stand out from the crowd.
You can choose to make this luggage tag in ANY faux leather colors.
I’ve designed this luggage tag so that it can be easily sewn on any domestic sewing machine, which means it will have raw edges. If you’re not a fan of raw edges, you can check out my fabric luggage tag tutorial here.
The finished size of this leather Cricut luggage tag is 6.5″X4″.

For this tutorial, I used my magical Cricut Maker machine to cut out the shapes for this project. This saved me a LOT of time and I didn’t waste any paper as I didn’t have to print the PDF file. How awesome is that!

Step-by-step tutorial for Leather Cricut Luggage Tags
Step 1: Sew the extenders right sides together with a 1/4″ seam allowance along the longer edges as shown below.
Step 2: Insert extender into the 1/2″ D-ring, fold over by 1/2″ and sew parallel to the D-ring using a seam allowance of 1/4″ and 1/2″. Keep aside.
Step 3: Place clear vinyl on the wrong side of the window panel and top-stitch around the inner edge of the tag as shown below.
This is what it should look like when done.
Step 4: Glue the cut-out to the RIGHT SIDE of contrasting faux leather, making sure you apply glue on the inner corners.
Step 5: Top stitch all around using a 1/4″ seam allowance. I like to use a wide stitch length for top-stitching so that the stitches are prominent and beautiful to look at.
Step 6: Glue main faux leather and contrasting faux leather, wrong sides together.
Step 7: Glue window panel to the RIGHT SIDE of the main faux leather as shown below.
Step 8: Insert the extender at the top so that it is centered. Sew all the layers together along the four edges using a seam allowance of 1/4″ as shown by the dotted lines below.
Step 9: Glue the two strap pieces WRONG SIDES together. Top-stitch along the longer edges using a seam allowance of 1/4″ and wide stitch length.
Step 10: Insert one of the ends of the strap into the D-ring and fold it over by 1″. Sandwich the other edge in between the fold as shown below.
Step 9: Top-stitch parallel to D-ring as shown below using a short stitch length.
All done, your leather Cricut luggage tag is ready!
