A glamorous gal feathered, bejeweled and busy knitting on DPNs adorns this pretty set of 8 matching Fiber Care tags with ribbon. Attach these to your lovely hand made fiber gifts, telling the lucky recipient what fibers you used, and how to properly care for them!

My original design was inspired by a vintage black-and-white photograph of showgirls posing in 1942 Hollywood. My guess is that they were knitting socks for WWII soldiers.

I've created two fiber care tag designs to match my "Knit Glamour Hollywood 1942" card designs, as well as note cards, postcards and tote bags. You can see them all here:

How I Make Them

To make my collage I scanned and restored the original photo, touching up and sharpening the image, then carefully colored and tinted it with a silvery moonlight & lavender wash.

I selected one of the gals and surrounded her with silvery swirls, and added the text "Hand Knit for You" in flowing deco text.

On the back of each tag, I print Fiber Care text as shown here, reading "Fiber Content" and "Fiber Care", against a matching silvery, swirly background.

I have my design professionally printed on heavyweight card stock, for brilliant and permanent color. Then I I hand-cut each tag to measure approximately 3-1/2 inches x 2 inches, and attach a 6-inch ribbon tie.

Packing & Shipping

I slip each tag set into a cello sleeve, as shown here, and ship in a protective cardboard mailer.
