Adding Labels to Your Makes

Labels are a great way to add a special detail to your sewn items! I wanted to share some ways my customers and I are using labels in our makes. I hope maybe you’ll feel inspired to include them in your next project for a perfect final touch!

You can find our selection of labels in the shop here!

For this special quilt, Maechen added a personalized label for her shop as well as Look After Me care label. These are not your typical “machine wash, tumble dry” sort of labels though. I just love the message on these that says: Treat me with care, use common sense, wash only when dirty, mend me if I break. Words to live by. Maechen’s quilt was quilted by professional long arm quilter Tawny.


Macy made this beautiful, cozy quilt coat and added a Me Made label. Such a lovely reminder of all the love and hard work that went into making this amazing garment!

Part of the joy of making your own clothes is that they are made to fit your body and they are made to last. Don’t leave your precious makes in the closet! I imagine Sarah really is wearing the shit outta this garment because it is so cute!! I love the fabric she chose from Ruby Star Society’s Warp and Weft collection. We have a couple of fun sweary labels if you get a kick out of them too!


This probably won’t surprise you but I mostly use labels on bags. Whether they’re sewn into the side seam, onto the outside or the inside of the bag, or around the binding, there are so many ways to add labels to your bags! Here are some of my past projects…

Clearly You are Loved is a personal favorite design of mine!

(We no longer have You’ve Got This or Be Gentle with Yourself but any other end fold labels will work perfectly in the same way!)
