Woven Sewing Tags

Adding Custom Personalized Sewing Labels can be a Nice Touch for Your Handmade Projects

Adding Custom Personalized Sewing Labels can be a Nice Touch for Your Handmade Projects

Add a personalized sewing label to your handmade items.

Shown in these photos are customized labels from which were made for Kittiwake company. These personalized labels can be made to be ironed on or sewn on.

     Whether you’re just starting out at sewing or an expert, you may want to give special recognition to all your fabulous creations with a personalized woven sewing label. People say handmade gifts are the best to receive because they were made with love and so much time and effort was put into the gift. I agree, but I also say giving a handmade gift is the best. I love to make something special for someone, and my last step of the project is sewing on the finishing touch of sewing my personalized woven label.

     Today, you can easily find personalized sewing tags to purchase on many websites. Now you can put that final touch on all your garments, crafts, and quilts with clothing tags designed by you. Custom sewing labels can have just your name, a logo, or any other information you would like on it. If you’re looking for a sewing label that’s not custom made there are plenty out there that have cute sayings like: “Handmade by Grandma”, “Handmade by Me”, “Made with Love”, etc.

     Colorfast sew-on woven labels are popular with family craft and sewing businesses. They will not fray or fade, the text is embroidered on the label, not printed, and they are soft yet durable, unlike the stiff hard labels from years ago. They give a professional and personal addition to your handmade item. Some labels can now be found made from woven organic cotton, bamboo and hemp. They are perfect to put on your handmade gifts for friends and family, and small craft business owners. Whether sewing, knitting, or quilting, these charming sewing labels adds one more bit of thoughtfulness to your homemade item. If you are looking to getting into the craft, knitting, or sewing business, keep in mind that your own labels will make your products look more professional, increase your branding and marketing, attract repeat customers, and looks appealing to the wholesale marketers.

     When ordering your customized sewing label keep in mind, the size, colors, and shape. Most tags can have three lines. Keep it simple, with your name or name of your company, contact info, perhaps your phone number or your website address, a small logo and use two or three colors. A 1”x2.5” is an ideal size tag for clothing or crafts. It is large enough to see but not overpowering and will not take away from your product.

     It is said that in the 19th century the first designer to have his own label sewn into his garments he made was Charles Frederick Worth. It gave him such success that instead of people telling him what garments they wanted made and treating him like a seamstress, he dictated to them what they should wear, making him the first fashion designer. I don’t think your very own sewing label will make you that successful, but it sure adds a nice touch to the hard work you have put in to your handmade items.


The labels shown below can be found at local fabric and quilt shops and even some convenient stores. They are a nice touch, but keep in mind, anyone can get these labels and they are not custom made just for you and your business.
