Back-To-Cool Labels - Part II

Remember last Fall's posting "Back-to-Cool" custom label project? Those work well with jackets and heavyweight outerwear. This follow-up project is primarily for those interior labels that can get scratchy or stiff. Plus - no computer software or printer required! Simply pick up some alphabet stamps at your local craft store and twill tape (I went with the 1/2" width). For the ink, try the VersaCraft stamp pad that is specifically for fabric. Don't forget to heat-set your labels before the first wash!
When you're ready to attach the labels to the garments, fold under the raw edges of the twill tape and do a simple whip-stitch on either end. When you're ready to pass on the outgrown garments, it's easy to remove the stitches.

I really like this idea and I had no idea I could stamp on twill tape.
