This is an easily constructed marker that is both durable and easily spotted from a distance on the luggage carousel. No one would pick up a suitcase with this tag by mistake.
I am showing this luggage tag on red luggage so I have toned down the color so as not to clash. There is a great deal of red luggage and it is wonderful to be able to recognize your own from a distance.
You can make yours to suit your own luggage. On Black Luggage a Red Tag would be great.
9 inch piece of cord
48 inch piece of cord
Center both cords around the handle of the bag, where you want to place the tag.
Start working "half square knots" one after another. The cord will start twisting so that you need to reposition your work to be comfortable
The Square Knot
The Square knot is made with four strands of cord. Keeping the two center cords straight, tie a knot with the two outer cords (the longer ones) according to the sketch. Hold the center strands taut and tighten the knot by pulling the two outer strands up into place.
I've added a bead to end of each cord and knotted it. You of course can personalize your project by using a distinctive cord and beads. It would be interesting to use a black leather type cord for a completely different effect.
Have Suggestions orany improvements? I would love to hear from you.
