How my Husband was Right

My husband wins!  After torturing him with handmade clothes missing any label indicating the back of the garment, I finally had to deal with it myself when dressing my niece in a dress her mother made.  And now that I know what it is like when yo don't just "know," I conceded to adding labels.  And you know what... its fun.

In fact, it may be an addiction.  Some I ironed directly on (particularly garments already made).

But my preference was to make these cute twill tape labels...

Aren't they fun!

There are a lot of tutorials on these.  And they really are simple.  Just design your label on the computer and print it on t-shirt transfer paper.  (Note: Test Print.  After designing it as a mirror image on the computer, I discovered that selecting the t-shirt transfer option in my print settings reversed it by itself, and un-reversed all my hard work.)

Then cut and iron on your twill tape.  Voila!  No more headaches for other people... nor for the kids.

Love the tags! Funny, the "P" in Pink and the "T" in Tea kept standing out to me as a lovely, artistic signature. Then after I looked at them for a bit, I began to see the "C" in the P and the "J" in the T and I loved it even more! Was this irony intentional or accidental?

Totally Accidental... but I love it
