For today's post, the object that I took a picture of is my typewriter! I got this pretty Smith-Corona on Freecycle, and while it needs some work done to it (cleaning, new ribbon etc) that I haven't had time to do yet, I love it so!
Given that I've been meaning to give this tutorial for making fabric labels from the Make Something blog a try for ages, I figured this was a good opportunity to get myself moving on this project.
So I got the boy to let me use his working typewriter (also pretty fancy--just realized they are both Smith Coronas haha) and gave it a go!
Instead of fabric, I ended up using a piece of stiff, sew in interfacing, which actually was a great surface for typing on, and ended up looking a bit like a twill/canvas sew on label I think, with less unravelling:
I think that once there's a working printer at the house, I might give printing directly onto the interfacing a go, since it would be a cheap and easy way to make sew on labels. I'll be sure to share pictures once I try this!
