Day 40: Homemade Daily Challenge, Labels
Since I set up evajanie (Jan 2011) I really wanted to have some fabric labels made up to stitch into my products. I search high and low but only found cheap and nasty ones that were printed or not sewn nicely which wouldn't sit well with the high quality products that I make and sell.
I use an all-singing-all-dancing Janome sewing machine and attempted to sew my own labels using one of the fonts but I wasn't happy with those results either. So I saved some of the money I had earned over the Christmas rush and splashed out on some from a British company called www.labelname.co.uk/ Firstly I was really impressed with their site and the options available, you can really get a bespoke order by using the drop down menu, there are a selection of fonts and icons, a choice of colours for both the text and for the background and you can pay using paypal, it was a really simple process. They took three weeks to arrive (you can pay more for a quicker option) but they were well worth the wait.
I have been super excitedly sewing them into my orders all week, I love them :)
