front vs back
January 17, 2011
I love the over-sized purple cotton nightshirt I made for myself. It is EXACTLY what I wanted and I totally winged the pattern from an existing nightshirt. The only problem is that I can’t immediately tell the front from the back.
Every time I search for where the collar edge overlaps. It’s not a big thing but it’s vaguely annoying. And I have the feeling this won’t be the last time I deal with this issue as I attempt to make more and more clothing.
So I thought about it and decided that I didn’t want to use sew-on labels. But iron-on labels would work and could be fun.
Yes – these are the ideas that randomly pop into my head and stay there until I deal with them.
So yesterday I started my research. Standard Google search for Iron On Clothing Labels. I browsed and browsed and browsed. I found a few that would work but that didn’t have enough information for me to make a good decision.
Then I came across Emily Press Labels of Vancouver, BC, CA. Cute. Nice designs. Holds the 20 characters I need for my labels. I did have a question so I sent an email through the contact page of the website.
And got an answer much faster than I expected. And the answer was a treat!
I had asked about a label design that was available in the sticker labels but not in the iron on fabric labels. Would there be a time when it would be available in the style I wanted?
And guess what? They were thinking about it and if I asked then they could make a set for me… special!
So I’m getting these retro ones…and these dandelion ones…So because they are cute, what I want to say will fit, the customer service is top-notch, and bonus Vancouver – the current home of my bestest friend…. I placed my order.
I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
