A few weeks ago I was encouraged by a colleague (Hi Sarah!!) to make some labels for the bags that I make - and so set about surfing the web for something appropriate. I didn't want to spend too much time making them myself, so decided to order some from a firm - easy2name - that would print exactly what I wanted - however, things did not go according to plan!! Firstly, this firm sent the labels but the name was spelt wrong - the "e" was missing from "foreman" - oh dear - anyway, they offered to re-do them and apparently were going to send them to me "right away".....
.....well that was 3 weeks ago and I'm still waiting for them!! And in the meantime, I ordered the same type of labels from another company - Woven Labels UK - who sent the labels out swiftly, with no printing errors!! and were MUCH cheaper. I chose similar wording, but this time opted for a dark grey print on the labels....
.....these are great, and I can use them as tabs on the bags that I make, and can sew them across the corner on the back of quilts and runners if I don't want to make a handmade label of my own.........
.....and I've sewn this one onto the pocket flap of a bag - a special gift for a friend's 65th birthday. Now what else can I sew these on ;)
