Thank you all for your comments and kind words about my projects from the past week! You sure know how to encourage a girl! ;)
The question of my labels' washability came up in the comments from my post yesterday. Rita of Sunset Quilting mentioned that Silly Gilly's tutorial didn't say specifically that labels made by her method are washable. I actually did think of that before I made them, so I checked to make sure they would be. First I mentioned it to my husband, and he said, "Honey, they're t-shirt transfers. They have to be washable to use them on clothes." Well, yeah. I hadn't thought about that! LOL
Here are the washing instructions from the instruction sheet included in my package of iron-on t-shirt transfers (I used Avery brand):
~ Turn grament inside out
~ Wash garment separately from others (first time only)
~ Machine wash cold
~ Color-safe detergent
~ No chlorine bleach
~ Remove promptly from washer. Colors may bleed if left wet too long. If bleeding occurs, rewash immediately
~ Tumble dry warm. Add towels to improve drying
So the transfers I used are washable. The things I'll be using them in won't need to be washed often, and the labels are small and on the inside, not very likely to be harmed in the wash anyway. Just to test it myself, I washed on of my labels in a load of regular laundry, on the permanent press cycle, and dried it on warm. It came out looking exactly like it did when I put it in, maybe even a little softer. In the photo above, the label on the bottom is the one I washed, compared to the one that hasn't been washed. Still looks great!

Do you ever just have to laugh at God's timing?! Last year, I began a quilt that I was hoping to finish by Christmas. Time moved quick...
