TV Show – Did you see this episode?

diamantina_estrada | Posted in The Archives on

I saw a sewing TV show in which the guest showed how she added a personalized label to all her
finished garments. The label was almost 1/2 the size of the back of the garment, although she said sometimes she placed it on the front inside of the garment.

I can’t remember what show that was on. At the time I sewed very little due to lack of time. Now, I make time and I would love to add that extra touch to my garments, especially the ones that are gifts.

Did you see that show? If so, please tell me which one it was. I want to see if I can purchase the video on it. Thanks.

    Well, i didn't see your TV show , but this is what
    i do when I want to make a label. Pinking shear a
    cotton or silk square (or any shape). Write any
    message on the fabric (use a permanent marker
    anything from a sharpie to a sakura will work
    fine)- you may want to put the fabric on fine
    sandpaper so it won't slide. You can sign your
    name- write the occasion or person the garment was
    made for and any care instructions. sdometimes i
    even add an appropriate quote. Zig zag it onto the
    finished garment. That's it. A n

      *This may have been a Sewing with Nancy with guest Mary Mulari but I don't know which one she's been on several times. Check in her book from a couple years ago.

        *Personalized sewing labels are available and quite inexpensive. I got mine through one of the vendors who advertise in the Threads magazine and put a label in everything I make. Love it when someone says, "I don't believe you made that" and I can show them differently!
