    Hello! I’ve been pondering labels for all my sewn items. Not for the purpose of selling them but merely to add a personal touch. One that says something like “Made with Love by”, etc. I want to customize it as well. My hubby says I should have a tag every time I complete a new O+S pattern so that the kids can keep them as heirlooms. As much wear as they get, that may be hopeful thinking! LOL.

    Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas on sources or options? Thanks. 🙂

    My mom does put tags in the clothes she makes for my kids, but they are generic. They say something like “Made by love by Nana”. I am pretty sure she just gets them at the local fabric store like Hancocks. I don’t know if you could get them with a name, but you could probably get one that is from “Mom” or “mother” or something like that. As far as personalized ones, I bet you could get them online somewhere.

    Not to hijack this thread, but I am wondering, along these lines, do you all put “size” tags in your clothes? I was just thinking it might be nice to know what size something is as I hand them down from my older daughter to my younger one.

    I put little bits on ribbon on the back side of the clothes I make so my kids will know which side to put on. On the underside of the ribbon, it normally has a size, but that’s pretty arbitrary at this point, as I tend to lengthen things in smaller sizes to fit my skinny kids.

    I just started putting labels in the clothes I sew. I started doing it for 2 reasons:

    a) so my kids knew where the back of the pants were, and

    b) so that when I give handmade items as gifts they know I made them!

    I’ll try to find a pic of one for you. Mine say ‘Made by Cherry’ and have a loveheart next to that.

    As few clothes as I finish, it makes sense for me to hand-embroider a ‘tag’ – the child’s name, a size, or some little symbol. That’s if I remember, which isn’t always the case. With somebody like Nicole who produces a lot of finished garments, it makes sense to have proper tags made up. I know we’ve talked about this before, but I don’t remember if it was here or on flickr, but somebody mentioned a good option for smaller runs of labels. They looked really cool and professional, and there were different price points depending on what you wanted. Will see if I can turn it up.

    I’ve looked at namemaker.com before, but haven’t ordered yet. I’ve read several bloggers recommend the site too.

    You might want to try looking on Etsy. There are several label vendors and all are custom/handmade. I purchased the ones I use from LillaLotta and just love them. Hope this helps.

    P.S. I’ve been following the forum and flickr group for some time but never commented before. I just love the support/encouragement provided here. I am gathering up the courage to sew my first garment and have been inspired by many of the beautiful pieces this group has created.
