That’s right guys, I now have my own custom labels to sew into my handmade garments! My sister was nice enough to create some different design options for me, and this grey one was my favorite. Fleur shared with me where she got her labels made for her pop-up shop event – Custom Couture Label Company, a small printing company based in my backyard in NH. These labels are digitally printed satin labels that are loop-folded and heat sealed on the edges. I was really happy with how quickly they created the proof before sending my order to be printed, and the labels arrived in my mailbox about two weeks later. If you’re looking for custom labels to sew into your handmade clothes, I highly recommend them, the quality is great – they can do batches as small as 100 labels for about $45.
In other news, I was off the radar for the past two weeks with travel for work and vacation…Chris and I just got back from a few days in Florida, and let me tell you, we did not want to leave. It was 80 degrees, sunny, and just wonderful to unplug and chill for a few days by the pool with a book and a margarita. And now we’re back to reality, but at least it’s starting to feel a little more like we’re closer to spring – today it hit 40 in Boston! Heat wave!
Tonight I’m going to start planning out my attack plan for spring sewing – I got a big box of fabric shipped to me from Metro Textile and I’m in desperate need of some new clothes for the warmer weather that hopefully will be here soon…exciting Saturday night, I know.
Hope you’re all having a good weekend!
