“Handmade just for you”

In crochet, finished projects, knitting, stash busting on December 29, 2013 at 2:59 pm


This is a close up of Northmoor Watchcap that I gave to a friend of mine for Christmas, today. I think the label made it even more special.

I would have posted this sooner, but unfortunately, I did not know about this sooner. After several hours on Pinterest (you all know how addictive it is so no judgment please lol), I found these gift/care labels.

I printed the labels on a heavier than standard weight printer paper… I think that will be your best bet. When I found this, it sparked an idea to use the labels for charity projects and such for 2014.

(Still slightly salty) 😉

    • No problem! Nice re:your own labels! There’s another post on Pinterest to make your own sew in labels with printer and ribbon. I must say, I have never put labels in my pieces….something to think about though.

  2. Remind me to give you the information for ordering them. They are not expensive at all. I also think they are a deterrent for people who like to re-gift. I stick them in with fabriglue.

  3. […] hours of the new year, I got Ravmail from the designer of Northmoor Watchcap. I just wrote about it here and now my photograph is being featured! All the more incentive to take great pictures! I’m […]
