handmade labels

Have you ever tried them? Last month when I was making all of my critter hats I wanted to attach a label in it. I placed an order for some labels on etsy. I knew they wouldn't come right away so I tried to make a couple of them on my own. This one turned out great but its very time consuming.
But the reason why i'm not fully satisfied is because it has a sheen to it. 
and if you feel it it has that shiny film on it.

I used the transfer paper method and ironed it onto the fabric

Here is another one I did. See how it has that shiny-ness to it?

Then I tried to pull the iron transfer off while it was still hot and it eliminated the shiny-ness but it also took off a lot of the ink...??? hmmm.
I just can't wait for my labels. I ordered them the first week of December and I'm still waiting......

but I do want to perfect this method...because I want to be able to print things on fabric without getting that shinyness. ...what else to do?


  1. You can print directly on your label with your printer. First you print on plain paper. Then use repositionable tape to tape your label directly on top of the printing. Run through your printer again same way. I printed on twill tape and it worked great.

  2. I think your labels don t seem bad. They can be used. And your technique is also very well. I can use your technique. Thank you..

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
