Q: As a first time school mom this year, I am a little behind in labeling my daughter's jackets and such. Her school is very adamant about making sure everything is labeled. So far, I have skirted the issue by purchasing a luggage tag for her backpack, but I am facing a dilemma when it comes to her jackets/coats as the weather grows colder.

1) our last name is very long and won't fit on most tiny tags, 2) she has a younger sister that will hopefully be wearing these clothes in a few years, so writing her first name would do no good, 3) some of her things are from consignment or handed down and already have someone else's name on them, and 4) if the garment makes it through the next couple of years in decent shape, I would like to consign it or hand it down to someone else. I am considering getting sew in labels made with both of my girls' names on it (saving $$ and effort in the future) and am wondering if anyone has a recommendation for getting them made. I have already checked out Etsy and several other random websites, but would love to hear from other moms who have actually ordered and used labels like this.
Editor: Readers, can you share your favorite sources for sew-in labels? I remember seeing a cute, simple tutorial for making your own at Sew Mama Sew (pictured) which you might like to check out.
