I feel that these are absolutely necessary in any item you sell, helping customers remember where they got those awesome creations from. Mine are a bit large compared to most clothing labels, but the stamp would not have come out clearly if it were much smaller, and I do like the look they give anyway. Also consider woven labels(which are more sturdy), I do love them but they are out of my pricerange, so the home grown kind will have to do for a while....

By the way, do remember to include these while constructing the garment, cause hand sewing is boring and when you have to pick or blind stitch them in you get cranky.

    I don’t know if I missed it or you didn’t say but how did you stamped the logo on fabric? I have a logo on the rubber already, but I don’t know how to stamp it so the ink won’t go with the washing.. please help! and thanks for a great tutorial.

      I usually put down a piece of cardboard or something so that I can press firmly with the stamp so it gets through both sides of the fabric, but it really depends on the type of ink you are using. I use a solvent based ink pad called StazOn, which actually says “not suitable for fabric” but after washing a few demos over and over and over it hasn’t faded much at all. To finally find that good one, I had to sacrifice a bit of money on a few kinds that didn’t do so well yet I feel that it was worth the effort. Also no problem! I want to share as much as I can with everyone on here so that we are all bad*ss craftsters, glad you like it!
