sewing tags

Somewhere I read an article about how you could type on fabric and heat set it. If you wrote this, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Last night I stayed up pretty late obsessing over such a thing. Love stories on the television, my typewriter in my lap, fabric ironed on to freezer paper and a thousand trial and errors. But it was so much fun, I couldn't give up. I finally got it down pat and now I have a baby food jar filled with sewing tags with my little business name on them! I'm so excited. 

So, excited in fact that I stayed up and extra hour just to make something to sew such a tag in. Sleep be dammed, sometimes it is way more important to be creative! 

After an etsy sale that went all the way from Indiana to Australia, I'm psyched to get making things again. I love these and I can't wait to add them to my products.


  1. I love it! Good job! Was it hard not to get the ink to rub off when you were typing? Love these. I would have been obsessing through the night too! :)

  2. The ink didn't rub off at all! though I would definitely recommend the freezer paper, I can't imagine getting the paper through without it. Also, you need to iron A LOT. To the point where you think, "oh my god, I'm going to burn this." just to heat set it.

    It was super easy and fun!

    What have you been obsessing over?
