Making A Name ...


Earlier this month, I needed a name badge for a Chamber of Commerce event I attended.  The idea has been on my to-do list for a good while, but there's nothing like whipping out a new project 45 minutes before leaving the house.  I came up with this test logo a few months ago and worked up an embroidery design.  The daisy isn't just right, but it was available in my flower stock.  Anyway, the badge shows off both my business name and a small bit of my machine embroidery work.  The logo is arranged inside a "patch" frame.  In steps, the machine creates a sort of applique, and then on the final step, I added some coordinating fabric under the hoop, the last set of stitches catches it all, and I trim away the excess fabric.  That machine and software are amazing! 

On that note, I need new fabric labels for my goods.  I would really like the kind that are double-faced and fold over, so that when sewn into the seam, the label pokes out and can be read from either side.  Any suggestions?

It's a great badge, Michele. Smart, cute, stylish logo.

I know www.twilltape.com does custom printing onto various widths of twilltape. I haven't ordered the custom stuff, but I have ordered lots of twill tape from him, and it's great.

Great badge and great form of advertising too. You'll probably get orders from it.

Nice Michele! What software do you like for your embroidery? I'm still looking for something affordable and yet useful.
