Sew-On Fabric Labels

One of my goals this next year is to take my sales part of crafting and create a more 'professional' image with my products.  I think putting labels on the towels and items I create is a step forward in doing this.  So, I ordered sew-on labels from Mommie Made It, a fellow Etsy shop.  Here is how they arrived:



I used a straight edge and a rotary cutter to separate the rows of labels.

Then I used a pair of small scissors to make the small cuts between labels.

Each cut label is placed in a mason jar (I love reusing glass jars).  I used a piece of fabric, secured with a hair band, as the lid so that the labels could breath.  I am not sure if this is important or not with labels.

 


They fit easily on the shelf, and are easy to see.  (Next thing to do is tidy up the shelf, LOL)


Here is a picture of one of the labels sewn onto a Valentine's Stay-Put Towel.

  2. This is a good idea! I'm also attaching labels and things to all the goodies that I make now (especially on card gift sets, to help promote my products!).

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
