Fabulous Fabric Labels

27. November 2012 06:46 by tbev | 0 Comments

Remember the little labels lovingly stitched inside the sweater from grandma? So sweet, but who has that kind of time anymore? Actually, you do! Thanks to modern technology, it's easier than ever to add a personal touch to all of your hand-crafted holiday gifts! There are lots of fun options, either do-it-yourself or hire-it-out. Here are some ideas to get you started:

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

If you want to create your own labels, Patchwork Pottery has a great step-by-step tutorial for you.

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

DIY labels get even simpler with these amazing fabric sheets that get printed directly from your inkjet printer!

I also love this fabric roll, which allows you to use as little or as much fabric as you want!

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

Want the personalized label without the work? Hire it out. Personalized satin ribbons can be ordered online.

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

In fact, you can even have your own logo or special design printed on these custom labels. 

Your handmade gifts deserve to bear your signature, so try these ideas out. And while you're at it, create a set of labels for one of your crafting friends. It's a fabulous gift idea!

This Week's Fabulous Updates

8. November 2012 13:27 by tbev | 0 Comments


Is it just me, or does the earth start spinning faster as soon as the calendar turns to November? Here's what's going on right now:

Thankfully, we dodged the worst of Hurricane Sandy, and now we're turning our attention to our neighbors in New Jersey and New York who didn't fare so well. We're inviting you to help by sending in donations. (Plus, any donations will enter you to win this week's $25 fabric giveaway!)

Speaking of giveaways, congratulations to Rhonda W.! She's the winner of our last giveaway!

On sale this week: Large Fabric Panels 

On sale this month: Travel Fabric

Have you seen our new arrivals? There's Mallards, and Pheasants, and Mickeys, oh my!

On Facebook we asked you: What is the one sewing tool or gadget you can't live without? The most popular answers? Seam ripper and rotary cutter. Our favorite answer? "A sister with a sewing machine!"

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks away?! I'm feeling chicken, but we've got some great fall-themed fabrics for your table.

Have a great weekend!
