    Kara, thanks so much for the gift tags. Care instructions are so very important when giving a gift of yarny goodness! I have my own care instruction tags that read: love me….use me…..wash me….mend me if need be! However, they only pertain to machine wash items. These will be great for my holiday knitting/crocheting gifts.

    I love the idea of using tags to identify your hand made wonders. This is something of use, I recently sent through US Mail for some labels, it has been 3-4 months, I hope I receive them soon. Thank You

    i am a little upset 🙁 all i got were purple ovals and no words.

    • Kara April 11, 2014 at 10:32 pm #

      Oh no! I don’t know why … I just tried and it worked for me 🙁

  14. Jessica May 15, 2014 at 3:12 pm #

    These are wonderful! Would you mind making one that says: Machine Wash Warm, Tumble Dry Low? I use Red Heart SuperSaver yarn A LOT and those are the care instructions on their labels.

    • Kara May 16, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

      Sure, Jessica! I added the new care tag option for Machine Wash Warm, Tumble Dry Low in the post. Enjoy 🙂

    Thank you so much for making the new tags. However, when I tried to print myself a copy of the PDF, they just came out as solid-colored ovals. Is it something I’m doing wrong, or have others had this problem?

    Hello. I am curious do you just print the pages on regular paper? Wouldn’t that just fall of over time? Or is there some special type of paper to print it on?

    • Kara October 11, 2014 at 9:41 am #

      Hi Sheena 🙂 I am not really sure what you mean?

    • Cathy December 21, 2014 at 11:45 am #

      I was kind of wondering the same thing, just use regular paper? a heavier paper? and how to attach it to what we made. I like the embroidered ones that are sewn on.

      • Kara December 30, 2014 at 12:18 am #

        I use a slightly heavier printer paper than usual and just hole punch a corner or enclose it in the gift box.
