City of craft poster

 

This Saturday is City of Craft in Toronto. If you're local, you should pop by. It's a massive, magical gathering of hand crafted gifts wares made my independant artists. 

 Also, If you do come by, I'll be running a little craft workshop at 2:30 on Saturday making these little guys, known as God's eyes. Come and say hi!  (Sadly, there won't be wine at City of Craft)

transfer labels sewn into garment

Add an extra touch of class to your hand made item by making your own clothing labels! Making tags is quick and easy, all you need is a photocopy version of your own logo, name or artwork, and a few supplies. Make sure that your artwork or text is in mirror image to the original format. If you've made one of our patterns and would like to make it look extra professional, you can print our labels.

These tags use a chemical called xylene from blender markers to dissolve photocopy toner onto fabric. When the toner is transferred onto natural fibre, it creates a wash-fast transfer. You can expand on this idea and transfer images to clothing!
