Label Your Handmade Knit and Crochet Projects

HOW & WHY?

Hello to all Crocheters and Knitters!  This quick tip blog is on adding a personalized label to handmade knit and crochet items.

After finishing a knit or crochet project, how many of you attach a custom label to it?  You should finish your handmade knit and crochet creation with your signature.

Just as an artist add their name to their artwork, your handmade crochet or knit creations are works of art and a personalized label should be added to all finished projects.

If you love knitting or crocheting and love giving your finished pieces to family and friends, adding your own custom labels can be a very thoughtful finishing touch.

Why attach labels to knit and crochet items?

  • Many crocheted or knitted items will become heirlooms
  • For future reference, the label indicates who made it
  • Adds a more professional finish to the item

The amount of information on the label is entirely up to you.  Quilters for generations have been told to add quilt labels to finished pieces; all handmade items should be labeled.

personalized Knit Labels & Crochet Labels

Crochet Labels Your Handmade Projects 1

There are quite a few different types of crochet and knit labels and tags from which to choose - fabric woven labels, leather labels and tags, and even wooden craft buttons and tags.

TIP: For crochet and knitted items, a sew-on type of label is the best choice.  I do not recommend an iron-on label since it may not adhere to the item properly. 

Knit Labels Your Handmade Projects 3 I keep personalized fabric woven labels on hand at all times.  These labels come in many designs and styles.  The label above is an example and was purchased from an online retailer

Tons of personalized labels or tags are for sale at Etsy, Amazon and other online shops.  So it is easy to purchase custom ones.

Also, online you can find lots of sites that explain how to make your own homemade labels.  We have a tutorial on how to make quilt labels with an inkjet printer.  This same technique can be used to make labels for knit or crochet items.

Now, simply tuck under each end of the label and with a needle and thread stitch it down in each corner.
