Potato Tag

Potato Tag

This is the last part for the “Potato” series. You can check out the first two parts here (for something delicious) and here (for drawing inspiration).

Ini bagian terakhir untuk seri “Potato”. Anda dapat melihat 2 postingan lainnya di sini (untuk resep) dan sini (untuk ilustrasi).

“I don’t know what to craft but I need to meet the potato deadline so I’m just gonna create some potatoes and call it a day.” That’s exactly my thought when I made this personalized initial name tag. The brown potato image was so strong that I didn’t even spare anything else a thought (eg. the mighty french fries). I did enjoy making it, though. It was a simple, no stress sewing exercise. So if you ever need a quick crafty escape, please remember this little potato.

Jujur, karena ngga tahu mau nge-craft apa dengan kentang sampai dekat deadline, akhirnya saya membuat tag inisial name berbentuk kentang.
Padahal kalau dipikir-pikir, tema kentang bisa dibuat menjadi berbagai bentuk seperti kentang goreng, karakter kentang atau apa saja (mikirnya telat). Kalau ada kain flanel sisa atau anda ingin membuat sesuatu aja sebagai pelepas stres, craft kali ini boleh dicoba lo. Cepat dan simpel.

Let’s get started. Get a piece of felt and fold it in half. Draw a potato on the top layer and sew the fold together, using the potato outline as the guideline. Cut off the excess.

Lipat kain flanel menjadi dua dan gambar kentang di bagian atas.
Jahit lipatan mengikuti garis siluet kentang. Potong sisa yang tidak diperlukan.

Add a safety pin on either side. (I tried making one with a loop tag too).

Tempelkan peniti pada salah satu sisi (Saya juga mencoba membuat satu lagi dengan tipe gantungan).

Cut out your chosen alphabet on another piece of felt and stick it to the potato tag and we are done! Note: I added a pair of eyes on the tag with loop hole (image below). I don’t know what I was thinking when I added them but it feels like they know I somehow cheated (in a way), scary.

Gunting huruf yang anda inginkan pada kain flanel lain dan tempelkan pada kentang tadi. Jadi deh! Catatan: Tanpa mikir apa-apa, saya nempelin mata pada kentang dengan gantungan (gambar bawah). Dipelototin gitu jadinya serem sendiri.

Thank you for reading. If you have any questions, please feel free to write on the comment box below or just shoot us an email (fromscratchindonesia@gmail.com). Hope to see you again soon!
