Felt Name Tags

name tag

The felt name tag is a simple embroidery project that I used for my RMGS girls.  I ended up using felt that I had stashed away in the craft room.  I believe it was felt that Rose used for her Christmas gifts from two years ago - felt posies. 

The members of Rosa Mystica Girls’ Society will use the name tags for meetings, social events, and service projects.

  • embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle
  • scissors (pinking shears)
  • hot glue gun
  • paint chip cards or cardstock or recycled plastic credit card/gift card


Steps:name tag felt pieces

  1. cut felt to desired shape and size (felt 1)
    • trim out with pinking shears
  2. write name on felt with sharpie
  3. embroider name onto felt with a split stitch
    • more threads in the floss will yield a bolder name

    • trim out with pinking shears
  5. (optional) stich the embroidered Felt 1 to the backing – Felt 2, using a running stitch around the parameter
