SO..I've been silently having label stress for a while now (oh, it really hasn't been that bad), because I'm not terribly good at asking for help, from oh, say, most of YOU who have probably already figured this out. Long ago. But no matter, the label stress has been plaguing me for a while now. Last year I had some labels made, but I don't like them anymore because number 1. they're iron on, which means they eventually seem to come off, and number 2. there was a limited choice of type and color. I won't bore you with the many attempts I've tried (rubber stamps, fabric ink, yada yada). But then, last week in the middle of the night (as these things happen), I knew *just* what to do. I printed the type that I wanted onto a piece of paper. Then, I taped twill tape over where the type was on the paper, ran it through the printer again, and voila...labels! How easy is that? I'm not really sure how this would hold up in clothing that will be washed, but I'll be mostly using them on bags anyway. Now, please, someone tell me that this never occured to them, either, so I can feel much better.
I know, really crappy picture. But you get the idea, right? (Oh, and I used white stickers for 'tape' because tape is a fast disappearing commodity around this house. Even though I buy two rolls a week.)
Okay, and since you all know how much of a dork I am already, I feel no shame in showing you this next label I made, which will soon grace the next spring pants I make for my babes:
Just because it's true, and really now, who couldn't use an extra reminder that they're loved? Even on the tag of your pants.
