7. Cut the buttonhole open. Stack the 2 fused pieces on top of each other. Using your Frixion pen, make a mark thru the buttonhole opening for the ribbon placement. Separate the fused pieces. Fold the ribbon in half and stitch onto the fused piece, matching the mark.

8. Stack the fused pieces together again. On the ribbon end, center a 2” opening to insert your card. Using a walking foot and a ¼” seam allowance, stitch from one side of the card opening around to the other side, backstitching at each end. If you have long sturdy pins, pinning the layers together may make sewing easier. Insert your identification card, pull one end of the ribbon through the buttonhole and secure it to your luggage with a knot.
