I made leather tags with tiny pieces of scraps. It's very simple and easy to make.
I cut leather in 3.6 cm x 2 cm (1.5 inches x 0.8 inches).
I punch them three holes. I made a pattern with thick paper, and put it on the pieces to check where I should punch. I also used these small circle pieces too!
I cut a piece of fabric as the same size as the tag.
I put the piece on the back of the leather piece, and put little glue on the place of a hole.
Then I put the circle piece on the glue, and pushed the piece into the hole. I used a pen to push it well. I put three pieces in the same way.
Then I cut the excess fabric.
The front side is this.
I made a lot.
At last, I made four holes at the corners with a stiletto, so I can sew the tag on my items.
Then, I made a linen pouch and put the tag on it.
This is made of white linen from SWANY. I sewed it with Sashiko cotton thread.
I also put a small piece of leather at the code, as the stopper.
But I made a mistake. I used different color of leather as the tag...
It's easy to use leather on your project and it makes handmade items more gorgeous, isn't it?

Hi Mairuru, I came upon your amazing blog through sewmamasew and like Skinnymum, I too have been reading your archives until my eyes have become tired. :)
I enjoy your creativity, ingenuity and economy with small scraps of fabric, and the fact that all your sewing is done by hand!
The pointy tool you are using in this post is most commonly called an "awl" in English. (Sometimes dictionaries give a technically correct translation, but not the best translation.)
While a stiletto is a pointy weapon, the most common English usage of the word refers to a shoe with a pointy heel.
Thank you very much for your comment!
I understand very well of the meanings of these words. I looked for the good word, but couldn't find well... Thank you very much (* v *)!!!!!
I agree with you. I check if I could change the size.
