Have been too busy learning my Floriani software to embark on any big projects. However, here are some luggage handle covers done ITH that I digitized. Used the current Purple Heart alphabet (thank you Miss Vicki). Learned a lot, such as you cannot incorporate a design within the name of the name drop function(must be a font from the software), how to split apart an applique, how to add stipple, need to adjust inset on the satin stitch when using wash away stabilizer.

I saw the handle covers a couple years ago on line (quite possibly on Cute) and always wanted to make some. These seem better than tying various ribbons to the handles to identify my luggage on the airline carousel. So with summer vacations coming up decided to take a crack at it. The first picture is of all made to date, and the second is of the center one opened up to show the Kam snap placement, and also the backs of the two I made for my grands....the penguin lover and polar bear lover.

Nicely the Kam Snaps for the closure...another reason for me to think about getting mine out of the bag after over 18 months and finally give them a try!

Great collection. I love the penguin fabric, it is really cute. I also like that you used snaps for the closure. That will make them more sturdy and less apt to get stuck on things (as it would with velcro). Nice job.
