Have you tried a yarn store? I saw some in one in my area last week. I "googled" made by labels once and found some but would have had to buy something like 100 so decided to pass! Good luck with your search. /tillie

We (my mother and I) are currently trying to figure out a way to label some items we want to send to my G-ma who lives in a nursing home. Her things need to be labeled or they get "lost"

I just finished knitting her a beautiful wrap but can't figure out how to label it.

I like this idea! Something I can do myself and customize it how I want.

OMG, I was just thinking about asking this question last night. I was talking to my friend, and she said that usually a local fabric store, like Hancocks, will have them.

Iron-on transfers on satin ribbon--what a creative idea!!! I've used iron-on transfers before, but I did it on regular cotton fabric, then I had to sew up all the ends, etc. to make a nice looking label. This you could cut the ends with a pair of pinking shears, put on some "Fray Check", and you're good to go! Thanks for posting this idea!

I ordered business cards from a free business card site where I put my name on it and "Washing Instructions on Reverse" on the front...then I can put any details I want the recipient to see.

It doesn't attach to the garment, but I'm just throwing out other options
