I printed out some simple letters on card stock for gift tags, one for each of our names. My three-year-old cannot read yet, but does know his letters, so these tags will allow him to find his own gifts and even help to pass out other people's as well.
The gift bags were incredibly simple to make, especially because I did not add any kind of closure. They are just basic bags with a hem across the top. I was having one problem though as I was making them...and I think this is something I have seen when making other things as well. Every time I finished a machine stitch and pulled the fabric out, I noticed that the thread at the very end of the under-side was pulled out a bit. What am I supposed to do about this? Do I just cut it off? Is there a way to keep this from happening?
