Fall Announcement

I just received a wedding announcement from a friend and fellow designer—she did a fantastic job. The letterpressing was done by Rob at Tryst Press—great to work with and a very good craftsman. And I'm pretty sure the paper is Cranes Lettra . . . so, so, nice.

DIY: Tags

Just as I was about to go live with my new Etsy store I found out about tag requirements for textiles. After scouring the internet for a good deal, I realized I can make my own tags for now—no screen printing or special embroidery machine necessary.

Here's How:
Because tags are tiny, you can use scraps of fabric and iron on transfers to make them. Remember to flip your image so that everything reads backwards—when you iron it on the image will be in reverse. With my design I can get 32 tags out of one sheet of transfer paper.
