so.... I have come up with the following which will certaily save some time and be "easy access":
All you need is:
* 1 x Bias tape maker - the 3/4" is wider and is a nice size *
* Fusible Web - ideally one to fit the Bias maker - I used the 10mm width
* Calico or plain material that you want to use as your label material.
(*Note: you can get bias makers that dont have the fusible web feed - obviously if you had one of
these you wouldnt need the fusible web, but I find if you were going to invest in one, then the one
that has the fusible web feed handy as it sticks down when ironed in place)
Using the 3/4" maker, you will need to cut your strip of material 1.5"
Feed all the way to the end of the strip, then roll up until ready to use - so simple!!!
You now have your label strip ready to use when you next finish a small project.
Cut off lengh you require - remove the sticky strip
fold in half and iron, the stitck centre will hold it in place
Sew into your item with the raw edges facing in
and just hand topstitch the sides
It is now ready to write on.
I use a Micron fine 01pigma pen
Alternatively if you are sewing something that doesnt need to be tucked in the seam,
just cut a strip to the length you need,
tuck in the ends and handstitch your label onto your piece.
Let me know your thoughts and how you put labels on the smaller things . Would love to here from you.
