Customized Labels, Part I

So, this project is just in the beginning stages, but I'm too excited about it not to go ahead and share it.

When I've made sewing projects in the past, I've either stuck on those generic Made with love by... labels you can get from Joann's, or worse...put nothing at all.

So, now that I have the BroFo and am busting out beautiful project after beautiful project, not to mention have my own Etsy store, I decided it was time to invest in some personalized labels.

I've seen a few different options for label making, some include ribbons, some include embroidery, some include iron transfers, but my favorite is this one where the woman makes her own labels by first ordering customized fabric, and then making snazzy little labels out of it.

So inspiration struck, and I opened up Photoshop and got to work!   Then I went onto the Spoonflower website and ordered a yard of custom made material with my design on it.  Woo-hoo!

It should be here in about a week.  Then, I'll post an update.  Meanwhile, here is a little sneak peak:

Isn't it just crazy cute?


  1. Thanks for mentioning my labels! Your design looks great! I'm sure you will love your labels when you get them! I get so excited when I am at the end of my project and sew on my own label! :)

  2. Thanks Caroline, I recently discovered your blog and am loving all the ideas I'm getting from it. I'm sure I'll be linking back to you even more! I'll post a final post after I finish them (of course using your soaking/cardboard template idea).
