CELEBRATE NATIONAL SEWING MONTH - DAY 15: BY DESIGNING YOUR OWN APPAREL LABELS... ...

...it took me 4ever (years) to decide on a custom design label for my much loved hand crafted garments.  I could never seem to come up with anything that quite satisfied.  I also thought custom labels would be outside of my budget.  I even told myself that I really didn't need labels for the clothing I made for myself - who would ever see them anyway?  But in the back of my mind I still yearned for a classy little custom label to punctuate my work.

I finally took the plunge back in June when a fellow sewing blogger offered 15% off orders from Dutch Label Shop.  One of my sewing mentors had suggested that I have a design with lettering like this, so that is what I went with
I was not only happy with my new labels, but also the "whole design your own label" process, AND the price.  Finally, I had that classy little custom label I had wanted for so long.  The design process was so easy.  It guided me through step by step allowing me to see how the label would look as I made changes to arrive at my final design. It was amazingly easy!

Fast forward to just a few weeks ago when I was contacted by Abby from Dutch Label Shop asking if I would like to participate in one of their promotions.  Of course, my answer was an resounding YESSSS!

Having already gone through the design process once made this time a breeze.  I chose the same black label but with sparkly gold lettering and border.  There were so many options to choose from, (size, lettering, color, sew on or iron on and even symbols).  Designing my "Hello Beautiful" labels was so much fun, but it will be even more fun as I actually sew them into one garment after the next!



I'm celebrating National Sewing Month by offering all my readers a 15% discount from               Dutch Label Shop. The discount will be available for the next 30 days, using this discount code:  "fayesewingadventure15" (all lower case).  You can just enter the discount code when  prompted during the purchasing process,

 so you too can add a little sparkle to your sewing life!

    1. I have labels that I purchased over 20 years ago but never really liked. I do like these a lot so I'm looking forward to starting to use them real soon.

  5. Are they stiff at the edges? Because I usually cut out labels on store bought clothing, since I can't stand the itch of the label edges. I'd sure like to have labels like yours.

    1. I know exactly what you mean Marjie. I can't stand being scratched to death by a label either. These are soft thankfully.

  7. I agree with everyone else Ms. Faye, I love your new label designs! I ordered my labels from Dutch too and I believe it was around the same time you ordered your first ones too. I agree, it was super easy and the price was very affordable! Congratulations on being selected by Dutch and thanks for the discount for us!
