I'm not sure what exactly I'll use the labels for, but I recently found some inspiration about that.
Janet buys wool sweaters to use for some of her crafts (you should see the family Christmas stockings she's made through the years) and she made this darling tote bag/purse as a birthday gift for her daughter using the clothing tags from those sweaters.
Several months ago I attended a quilt show and saw this piece that is totally covered with labels. The story of the quilt was especially touching because each block was laid out by a small boy who was hospitalized at the time - and the nurses and doctors who cared for him all donated labels from their own clothing, plus gathered some from friends and family. His mom would then sew the labels down and he'd start on the next block - eventually they had enough for an entire quilt.
Here's a couple of close-ups. .
And I found this jacket that was embellished with vintage clothing labels.
Hmmm....... do any of YOU have ideas of what I can use my collection of labels for?
