Sewing Labels

Last summer, my DGD drew a picture while visiting--and she said it was her portrait of me. So after having it hang on the refrigerator here for a year, I wanted to do something to keep the drawing. It was in purple crayon on a thin piece of copy paper. So, I managed to scan the picture and sent it to an Etsy shop to have the drawing converted into a graphic design and then into some cute little labels for me to use in clothing for the DGDs. Here is a PDF of the design and a photo of the labels as used. I'm pleased and I think Samantha will be too when she sees how I kept her drawing "alive." I don't seem to be able to load the PDF so just a peek at the labels as sewn into the garments.

Lyn, My DGD did the same thing, I loved the drawing so much I embroidered it on the front of a jumper for her. Wish I had a photo to send you. I don't have labels and her drawing would make a cute logo. Do you mind if I borrow your idea?

I would be happy if you copy the idea! It is a fun way to have labels and to memorialize a little drawing!

Aww, that's a cute and clever. What a great way to preserve something made by her!
