Years ago, one could buy sew on labels which said 'Made by -(the name of the sewist'), that could be exchanged for labels with one's own name. Does anyone know if they are still available , and where?
I have made about 17 dresses for gifts, and would like to sew these labels on some of them. Thanks!

There are about a bajillion places you can get these. Qualities vary, however, and depending on how nice you want and how much you want to spend, it's a hard decision to make.

I bought some from a place that I didn't really like and then found another place that I really DID like! They are from Heirloom Labels.

It took a little while to arrive, but they came out really nice!

Good luck!

If you're in the message board, look at the Message Board tab. Then look below to the fourth button over from the far left, in the middle of the Message Board tab-- Clothing Labels 4U These folks pay to advertise here on PR. You might want to check them out. I've often thought of getting some of my own.

I found several styles of these labels at my local Joann's. They may also have them at places like Michael's or Hobby Lobby, though I have not seen them there........Cheri

I find that the standard " made especially for you by" labels tend to make things look home- madey. I prefer either stanping or calligrphing text onto a ribbon or a piece of silk and then stitching it into the garment with a wide zig zag. doing a label that way thends to give the garment a boutique look.

You can actually design and/or make up your own on fabric:

1) Using a label program and ready made fabric sheets such as the ones by The Electric Quilt Company that you can most likely run through your printer.

2) Using a label program and fabric transfers. Then iorning them onto ribbons or directly to your fabric garment.

3) Using a label program, print them out on a sheet of paper. Then Scan them and save as a jpg. Then upload them to Spoonflower and have them printed up there on fabric at Spoonflower Similar to the way done up by this person at that site:
Fabric Labels with filling in the blanks. You might want to make them smaller than these in order to get more on a yard of fabric.

You might want to use the satin stitch or zig zag around the edges of the homemade fabric labels on the fabric sheets or the ones from a yard of fabric at Spoonflower to give them a professional look.
