When I sew for my two girls, I usually sew two of the same thing. To avoid the fighting about what belongs to whom, I sew a small piece of satin ribbon in each garment in a specific colour for each girl. DD #1 likes purple, so she gets purple ribbon in all her garments, and dd #2 likes pink, so she gets pink ribbon in all her garments. So far, no fighting!!

I like this idea! Not so much for fighting but for DH sorting washing.... Also, you could combine this with the tip from Maria about noting the pattern # & size on a tag that gets sewn in.

I may have to do this to identify my jeans! My dh keeps putting my jeans in my 9yo son's closet (he's a bit smaller than me, but not much!). And the kicker is, my ds wears them.

Aarvic...ok, everybody is thinking it, so I'll say it...we should all have this problem, hips only slightly bigger than a 9 year old's, hehehe.
