If you enjoy knitting, but you prefer to give your finished items to your family and friends, instead of selling them, custom clothing labels can still be a nice touch. Instead of creating a label with your name and company logo on it, though, order one of these fun label ideas below to add a personal, loving touch to the finished item.
- Put a short quote onto the clothing label that captures your relationship with the person you are giving the scarf to, embodies the time of year when you are giving it, or summarizes your feelings about knitting. Quotes can be a fun addition, since they can evoke strong emotions, if chosen well, and they will help your loved one to think fondly of you and the item for years to come.
- If you can’t settle on a quote you like, keep it simple. Sign it “Love, Mom” on a permanent sewing label, or put another simple saying, like “Merry Christmas 2013,” if you are giving the item as a holiday gift. Small place-markers like this can help loved ones remember who gave them the item and when it was given.
- If you prefer, you can order labels with a simple picture, like a ball of yarn, a Christmas tree or the outline of a sun. Whatever you choose, make sure you like the image. Often people choose an image that has some sort of significance to them or their loved one, but that is not necessary, as long as it goes well with the color and style of the scarf or sweater you have knitted.
