In the Hoop Blank Tags



This set of tags is so versatile. From the 4×4 hoop size that makes a great luggage tag, ornament, package tie, etc. to the larger hoop sizes that are perfect for seasonal door tags! They’re easily made ‘in the hoop of your embroidery machine.

These rustic tags will be your new ‘go to’ design for gifts, home decor, holidays and more. We made them from canvas (actually 100% canvas painters drop cloths). The edges will fray to give a fun rustic look.


You can add embroidery or apply heat transfer vinyl (HTV) to them like our samples show.

Design Info

Peltex (Pellon 70 or 71F) is used to give the tags body.

General instructions are given for adding embellishments. Note ribbon widths, lengths, trims, etc. are all personal preference and not noted.

We used canvas for all our tags. You will get fraying when using cotton fabrics. The tags are meant to have a ‘rustic’ look. If you don’t want any fraying you will need to use a non-fraying material and this may limit your ability to use heat transfer vinyl, etc.

The instructions do not include how to cut or apply HTV. The lettering shown on our samples are SVGs that were purchased or were created with downloaded true type fonts in a software program. We used a heat press to apply the HTV. The heat press will not close due to the thickness. The platen was held down for the required time. Some people use an iron. When using HTV remember to mirror image your lettering or design. We used a ScanNCut to cut all lettering and designs applied to our samples. No support is given for using HTV. The instructions will tell you when it’s time to add embroidery.
