Make a Softball Bag Tag with this Free Softball SVG

The end of the school year is approaching, and that means summer softball season is coming.  I like to get a few softball craft projects made before the games start, including these fastpitch softball bag tags. They’re an easy way for players to tell their bags apart when they are all hanging on the fence together.  Download the free softball SVG later in the post.

Just what I needed! Make softball crafts using this free softball svg from Carla Schauer Studio

These softball bag tags are easy to make with cardstock and your cutting machine.  Laminating the tag keeps them weather (and mud!) resistant.  You can make softball bag tags for the entire team with only a few sheets of cardstock.

Include these bag tags with your other Softball Gifts for Players and Teams as part of team package.

How to make a softball bag tag:

In just a few minutes, you can have a cute softball gift ready for your favorite player or for the whole team. Have a baseball player in the house? Cut the circle layer from white cardstock instead to make baseball gear bag tags.

You will need:

Instructions:

  1. Open and resize softball svg file. In your design software, resize the file as to your desired size. A 3″ diameter cut makes a good size tag.

  1. Cut the ball and stitches. Cut stitches from red cardstock and circles from yellow cardstock following the directions in your cutting software.  Adhere together as shown to create softball.  (I like the fine tip of Beacon Zip Dry adhesive. If you prefer dry adhesive, Xyron sticker maker is a good choice for these thin pieces.)

  1. Cut player names or numbers from cardstock that matches team color using your favorite font. I used Geared Slab for these softball bag tags.  Adhere name letters to center of softball.

  1. Attach to softball gear bags using plastic zip ties.

    Thank you! I LOVE this!

  2. What font did you use?

    1. Hi Allisa,
      I used a font named “Geared Slab”. Thanks for asking, I updated the post.

  3. Is there a way to separate the ball stitching to two files? I want to make it on a bigger softball but can’t figure it out. Love this design!

    1. Heather, That’s a great idea! I’ve added a file in the post that includes just the laces, on 2 different layers. Enjoy!
