New labels

It’s been a hectic week here at MadeByEwe HQ, as I needed to get some new packaging labels designed and printed, ready for my knitting kits. 

Having spent time when it was snowy outside ploughing my way through a Powerpoint for Dummies book, I just about remembered how to put a label together, and here is the result.

It’s not perfect yet but I think it’s much better than the old labelling system.  Fortunatley Kall Kwik were able to print the labels in a few hours and here they are on the new bags.  How posh!


I also met up with Jen of Beakerbutton – what a great name that is!  Jen has a lovely wool shop near Andover and sells my kits in her shop, along with wool, of course, and gorgeous Dorset buttons, which she makes herself.  Find her on etsy too.

More news later in the week about Unravel knitting festival in Farnham last weekend. – once I’ve finished drooling over my purchases…..

Go drool over what other crafty people have been up to over on Handmade Monday!


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!

    Those are not mere labels, they are works of art with a purpose! In fact I think you could give a number of copy editors and designers a run for their money! I bet they will fly off the shelves (not that they weren’t before) They look fantastic 🙂

    The new labels look fab and on the bags, they look enticing and exciting! A brilliant job 🙂

  3. They look absolutely fantastic, I can’t believe you can get such good results from a powerpoint mock up.

  4. Jill says:

    The new labels are really smart and as Ros said, not just labels. Definitely very inviting and encouraging to customers. Hope you have a good week.

    I love the names and the labels are brilliant

  9. I agree with what Caroline said, she took the words right out of my mouth! I expect a tremendous amount of work went into these, it takes a while to get things just right! Worth the effort though. Good Luck!
