    Haha, great! Is it comfortable? Did you put something soft on the back side?

      Thank you. Backed it with jersey. I’m not a big fan of labels that itch. They drive me crazy in T-shirts.

    That’s pretty cool and fantastic, and took some sewing, I’ll bet!! How funny that you can even get those labels over here… and I hope there is a “made in Australia” label on there somewhere too :)

      Thanks so much.
      Bizarre you can get them here but only paid a couple of dollars for almost 1000. Yes, my urbandon label proudly proclaims made in Australia (as does some of my care labels)

    Such a good idea! Were all the 900 labels separate? That’s a lot of precise sewing, too!
