Create Fabric Care and Content Labels
Consider DIY fabric care and fiber content labels to include along with unique home-made identifying labels for home sewn garments or fabric craft items. Enhance the quality of your sewn creation, promote a budding brand, and lend a professionalism that will set home sewn items apart from others.
