Episode 015 Add a label to your hooked rugs
For more information about creating label, see this older article.
Find printable fabric on Amazon. This is an affiliate link. That means I earn a small fee for sending you to Amazon, but it does not affect the price you pay at all. It is a generic search result because the products come and go. Look for fabric that will work with your type of printer (ink jet, laser etc.). You can also use a coupon at Joann’s or Hobby Lobby.
Information to add to your label
- Name of the pattern
- Designer’s Name and/or Company Name
- Dates, the year you finished or the start and finish date
- Your name
- Your town and state
- Why you chose to hook that pattern, who you hooked it for, etc.
- optional: The type of backing used
- optional: The cut sizes you used
If you started the rug in a workshop:
- The workshop you were in
- Where the workshop was held
- Who your teacher was
This label was one of the first ones I’ve done. It has not held up as well as my newer ones. I printed it on muslin. Not the best choice after seeing how it has held up over time.
Before you begin hooking
Write your name and town on the front of the rug in case you need to prove that the rug belongs to you and the label has been removed.
Add your name and cell phone number in the margin of your rug. If it gets left behind, it can be easily returned to you.
Turn your rug tape into a label
This article by Sally from the Folk ‘n’ Fiber Blog will show you how to add your label information to the rug tape if you use that for finishing your rugs.
