When I hand-stitch my tags, I adhere them to a large piece of fabric with 505 spray. Once I've finished stitching them all, I cut them away from the background fabric and add eyelets for hanging. Recently I brought this panel while it was in progress to a craft night and a colleague remarked that it was beautiful. She thought that the background fabric was part of the piece. That got me thinking about alternate ways of presenting the work... more options to consider.
