  • Be Gentle with Yourself clothing labels

    9 items left

    Spending the time to knit or sew a garment for yourself is like showering yourself with love and care. During good times, making something for yourself is an exercise in joy. During anxious times, it can be soothing, and during difficult times, it can be healing.

    This phrase is my own "note to self." I drew the phrase (be gentle with yourself) with tendrils of pothos leaves and had it woven onto satin clothing labels. I sew one of my "notes to self" into every single thing I make, and it always (always) makes me smile. 

    I think you'll love sewing them into your garments, too.

    • Each label is 2 inches wide and 1.25 inches tall.
    • Choose either 3 or 6 labels, packed in a cute little glassine envelope.
    • They're digitally printed on satin, and are finished on all 4 sides.
    • Easy to sew into either knitted or sewn items.
