Labels

Guess what? I finally got some proper labels. And they're perfect. Small and simple, just the way I like it. I do need to get into the habit of putting "proper" labels on my quilts as well. But it's all about baby steps.

At first I went the Spoonflower route and had some fabric labels printed. Then I used double sided fusible web to stick them on, but they just weren't right.

And I saw these labels on someone else's blog (I can't remember which) and I decided to check them out on Etsy. They're not super expensive and the come rather quickly. Although, mine did get lost in the mail and returned to sender initially. But as soon as we figured that out, I got them back really quickly.

I opted for a light gray background and darker gray lettering. Gray is, after all, my neutral of choice and I thought they would be more unassuming and go with everything. And since I make a lot of garments as well as quilts I thought these would be the perfect size for any project.

I've been having fun sewing them into my latest creations. And I have a ton of them, so I am sure they'll be popping up all over my projects from now until eternity!

  1. Hollie,
    Thanks for sharing these - I really need to get some labels too. Are these the "text only woven" labels? They look great!

  2. I am also wondering if they are woven--and do they fray? I want labels, but also want to change my blog name, since no one gets it. (And I guess that's what happens when you use an in-joke as a blog name! Doh!)
