A Bit of Craftiness in the Mix

I've been wanting to put a more permanent tag on the prayer shawls we give away from our church knitting group. First I just handwrote them with permanent ink on fabric. They are just ok and I could foresee myself getting tired of that for the long haul. I later tried printing fabric labels on my ink jet printer. They turned out great and are smaller. Though the fabric is a bit expensive, I can get 30 labels on a sheet so as long as I don't ruin a sheet, it is just pennies per label.

We are just whip stitching them to a corner of the shawl. They are about half the size of the handwritten one in the photo. The ladies in the group really liked the idea.

Another pumpkin hat went to a little baby boy born in October. So cute.

Then I sewed project bags that can go into the basket I carry with me. These keep the project pieces nice and tidy. I've turned into a triple project person all of a sudden. What in the world is going on?

Old buttons with large holes dress up the ribbons on the bags.
