Calling it my own

Posted by 2ton Inspired on November 16, 2007

I’m not a seller but definitely a giver of knitted items. I thought it would be fun way to let the recipient know it’s hand made and know how to care for their item. After reading up on different ways to make labels for my knits I settled on making tags to attach to the garment with my knitting alias (2ton knits, more on that another day) on one side and fiber content and washing instructions on the backside.

For me the tough part is finished. That’s the designing. I made a dozen and still couldn’t chose one! That’s when I decided I would use multiples. That way I could also change them later down the line when I felt the need to update the look.

I plan to print them on the blank business cards you can buy at the store. That way they’re sturdy and won’t require cutting. Maybe I’ll laminate them as well depending on how much bleed they give and where I can print them. After that’s all finished I’ll to use the basic hole punch and ribbon tie to pin it to the FO’s.

I have to add that these colors came out more vibrant then expected when I uploaded them to Flickr. They’re much more muted when printed! Please don’t think I made bad color choices!
