I am several rugs behind in sewing labels on. Unlike Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) who sews on a label immediately after the binding is done, I wait until there are enough rugs hooked to print out an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of labels.
Here are the ones I just printed out but haven't been sewn on yet.
The picture posted on each label is determined by different things. When doing antique adaptations I like to post a photo of the original antique. That is what I did with the top left label for Primitive Horse and Birds and a picture of the original antique.
To the right of that is the Anniversary Sheep design which was a generous gift given us at Cape May, which was basic. It was a challenge piece to inspire creativity. On the label I wanted to show the basic design on the back and the result is the finished piece.
The label below that is one I named "Ben in the Garden". But was a pattern by Pat Hornifus given me by a friend. I'd lost my boy Ben and decided to change the Golden to a Rottweiler. But printed the picture of her original rug design "Golden in the Garden" on my label as the original source.
Since there are new readers/followers on my blog some of you may not have seen the previous tutorial on how I make rug labels. So to not duplicate that process, if you click HERE you can read all about it.
Happy hooking or whatever creative mood you are in right now.
