Labelling school clothes
One of my least favourite things about the kids going back to school is sewing all the name labels into their uniforms. With four children you can imagine that this is quite the chore! It's really important to label their clothes as if your children are anything like mine they will be constantly losing cardigans, ties, PE clothes and all sorts! One top tip I do have from my years of experience is to put their name and your phone number on the labels - this means that if they leave their coat somewhere like a park, leisure centre or other public space then whoever finds it can give you a call to arrange for you to pick it up. Believe it or not I have had at least 3 phone calls over the last few years and managed to retrieve some lost property, which is expensive to replace after all.
Iron on name labels
The perfect solution to the chore of labelling so many items of clothing is to use iron on name labels. Stuck on You does the prettiest and most unique name labels I have seen. We were sent a couple of packs of the Penny Scallan Clothing Labels to review and were really impressed with their quality and ease of use too.
How to order
The ordering process is great - you can preview exactly what your labels will look like on the site before you order them and they have lots of different labels to choose between, from ordinary name labels to pretty ones like I chose!
How to apply iron on name labels
The labels arrived quickly and I followed the instructions to stick them on - by simply placing them on your garment, covering them with the provided paper and pressing an iron on them for 10 seconds. As long as you don't move the iron around I found the labels stuck really firmly. It was very simple to do and added only a few minutes to my ironing time, rather than hours of sewing!
I tried the labels on the girls dresses, shirts, jumpers and ties and they worked very well on all of these. So far they have washed brilliantly too - staying firmly put unlike other iron on labels.
I love how easy these labels were to use and how fabulous they look - it will be easy to spot my girls jumpers in the middle of the lost property pile now! At £13.99 for a pack of 48 they are great value too - and one packet should last a few school years.
Self-inking name label stamp
Another thing to consider if you have multiple children as I do is investing in the self inking name stamp - I would put your family surname and your phone number on and then you can use the same stamp for all your children's clothes, saving lots of money and saving on waste too.
