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.

  1. That is a nice addition to your product and should make it easier for your customers to find you again.

  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!).

    Question: Is that a Valentine made out of a towel?
    I have never seen one before. Ok, nevermind, I went to the tab and read. GREAT! They are pretty! It's been ages since I've had new towels. Hey! Are you in the Handmade With Love Winter Giveaway yet? I would love to show your towels off. If you are interested, here is a link for the info.
