Personalised Labels

I've wanted to stitch little labels into my home made gifts for some time but it all seemed a bit laborious and time consuming. Well, I found the time and with a bit of help from Mrs Google, I have made a variety of personalised labels.
Choosing what to say took a while. I didn't want them to sound too cheesy or inappropriate. So I came up with 'one of a kind' as no two gifts come out the same. 

 I used 'Pages' on my Mac. I put the text and image into a table. I reversed the text and images and printed onto Avery T-shirt transfer paper, cut each label out and ironed them onto cotton tape.

Frank's cardy

This is actually a lovely smokey blue colour. It's not photographed well.

For baby Liam

I'm an aunty for the second time. Congratulations Emily and Brad. Liam gets my latest creation.
And for his big sister Olivia, to make her feel included.

Tea cosy

I have two friends who have bought retro bach's in the past year. To carry on with the theme, they get a hand knitted tea cosy each. I found a book in the library full of weird tea cosies. I knitted two that were fairly normal looking, as far as tea cosies go.

cosmetic bag

I used this site to help me make my daughter a cosmetic bag. It worked well.
My daughter was quite specific as to what she'd like. It was to be water proof, tick, be able to hold small bottles. tick and not be too cumbersome, tick.

One for Jonny

This has taken a while for a few reasons. We were away from home, we went to Europe for nearly a month. Dogs aren't that easy to paint especially when the owner knows every inch of him. It was a daunting challenge as it isn't small, 600x400mm.

For Baby Frank

I made a painting like this for my friends twins, when they were born. They are ten now. I have made another this week for baby Frank. It is about 40 x 40 cm.
