I just wanted to share the labels that I had made! I had a friend do the design; I had some pretty specific qualifications. I wanted it to be "gender neutral" but colorful so I could use them for both my sons and daughter. I needed the design to be able to be rotated, so I could put it in side seams OR vertically at the neck. So we went with a few different variations of Paisley (3--one for each of my kiddos)


Then I ordered them from theCustom Couture Label Co. Dianne was an absolute dream to work with! They were $40 for 100 sew in, no fray labels. (NAYY)

Thanks for posting this. I have always been put off by the high cost, but this looks doable. 100 labels will last me for a while.

Are they itchy or scratchy?

Nope! I would compare them to twill tape. Not quite as soft as satin labels (these are just a tad thicker), but not in the least bit irritating.

Thanks for sharing! This is a great idea. Not nearly as expensive as I had thought.

I have made a few on soft grosgrain ribbon but found it tedious on my 430 doing the lettering. These look great.
