I sew a tag into everything I make. I bought several spools of this ribbon, printed to look like a measuring tape — perfect for someone who sews.


This is my ‘signature,’ an easy, quick way to identify the clothing I’ve made, without using an expensive custom label. My choice wasn’t very imaginative, but you could do just about anything; check out the ribbon selections at different times of the year and see what you can turn up to reflect your personality.


This little tag is also very helpful when pulling on simple shirts or pants — it’s the quickest way to be sure I’m wearing the front at the front.

    Thanks, Suffragette! Here’s the link to Cia’s Palette. The ribbons aren’t easy to find — there’s a search link at the bottom of the page; type in the word “ribbon” and you’ll get there. It looks as if she has only three or so right now, but they are spectacular, so it looks as if this site would be well worth watching. Great tip, Suffragette!

    What a great idea! I’ve been thinking of getting labels made, but didn’t want to spend money (that could buy patterns and fabric!) and this ribbon idea is great! Cia’s Palette (online fabric store) has a few really unique ribbons. Thanks!
