I've been in a label rut lately. I had been doing so good keeping up with making and using labels in the past, but this year has been an exception.
I think part of it was the feeling I had that I had to do it all from treating the fabric to making the design then printing it, retreating the fabric, and cutting them out and so on.
And then two days ago a lightbulb went off and I decided to do it through spoonflower. Brilliant!! So all I needed was the design, which I came up with by using photoshop.
The label above is for quilts. I'm super excited to be able to just cut them out, press the edges under, embroider (by machine or hand) the details and hand sew them down.
And this label design is for other sewing projects.
It's way smaller and I'll cut them out along the solid lines to be folded in half and the long raw edges will be sewn in the seam of a project.
I've only just ordered a yard of each design, so I haven't received it yet. I hope they turn out close to these pics though, especially since I was so impatient and didn't want to order a swatch and wait to inspect it only to order more. I guess if it doesn't turn out, I'll use them for purse linings maybe?
