How do You Go About Sewing Clothing Labels?
As we mentioned before, labels can come in many forms. You can order woven labels with personalized messages for a very affordable price (although these tend to go down in cost if you order a big quantity of them.) If you aren't necessarily looking for a professional solution, many stores sell generic ready-made labels that you can customize and later sew in. Sewing the labels is no mean task for those who have already gotten their feet wet with needles. Here's a quick run-down of what you will need to do to get those labels on your favourite piece of clothing.
The label could theoretically go anywhere. Most times, however, the labels are places on the inside of the garment, such as on the collar or at the bottom of the inside seam. Pick a location and mark it if needed, you don't need to be precise at this point.
Getting it Ready
Now that you know where you want the label to go, pin it to the garment to secure its position using sewing pins. Use as many as you need, though you'll find that you don't need to use many to get it to stick.
Reading the Needle
Using the needle threader (or just your incredible sight and a steady hand), thread the needle with about 24 inches of thread. This is standard procedure: poke the flexible wire part of the threaded through the needle hole, thread the wire loop and slowly pull the thread back through the needle. Make sure to tie a knot at one end of the thread since we don't want the thread to pull all the way out on the first stitch.
Let the Stitching Commence!
The first stitch should be done from under the label to hide the knot in the thread. Push the sewing needle through along the edge of the label bringing with it the thread through both the garment and the label. Repeat this process along the label's edge and try to keep each stitch similar to the previous one.
When you've finished sewing around the label, repeat the last stitch a couple time by looping and crossing the thread to form a small knot. This will keep everything from slowly getting loose and falling apart. There you go, you're done!
