amis au fil des ans

just a few good friends, sharing adventures in family, arts, and sometimes heavy machinery

and the labels are in production!

i can’t even tell you how much easier these labels are to incorporate into my items than the iron-on labels.  wow.  even when i sew it in crooked (yes…it happens), the total time to sew it crooked and fix it, is still way shorter.  heaven.

but speaking of sewing them in crooked.  any tips or ideas on how i can not do that?  of the 4 i did last night, 3 i did crooked.  it is hard because the label is too small to pin but there is nothing really holding it securely in place.  i am hoping practice makes perfect or one of you (yes…you!) have an amazing idea to share.  pleaseandthankyou.

      thanks! for the folded labels i went with a 3/4″ width x 1″ length. that gave me 1/4″ for sew-in allowance. for the flat labels i went with a 3/4″ width x 2″ length. that gave me 1/4″ at the ends to either fold under and sew or use the zig-zag stitch to hide the raw edges. hope that helps!

  2. …and these look great. i especially love the folded ones with the bird on one side
