Clothing labels give that final professional finishing touch to your sewn garment. They are a necessity if you are selling the sewn articles to others.

I’ve also recently come across lots of label producers who are offering small minimum orders for professional looking woven labels.

Since I love a good DIY fix (and find most woven labels very itchy) I thought I would share my favorite tag making method, using ribbon or fabric and stamps!  

The process is very straightforward.Get stamps, stamp on ribbon or fabric.Set with iron and sew in!

If this is a passion of yours as well; the label is a great place to share your vision.
