I had my first “commission knitting” project this summer for these fun little scarflets. I decided to go all out and make some fun labels because, after all, presentation is everything.
The order was pretty flexible. She said “I want 4 scarves by October.” I got to pick the colors and everything. Granted, she ordered more of these scarves I made for two of my friends last Christmas, so it wasn’t a total free for all.
I made the labels in illustrator and printed them on card stock. Then I just folded them in half, glued it together, punched the hole and attached it to the scarf with a safety pin. Simple enough, right?
Since it’s October it’s a good thing the scarves got done! I think these are going to be Christmas gifts for people. Oh man, the holidays are going to be here before we know it! Perhaps I should follow her cue and start thinking what sort of holiday shopping I have to do!
