Custom-woven labels for kids are a great way to organize your children's closets. Say goodbye to Monday morning muddles and arguments over favorite T-shirts with a separate label for each child. Sticky clothing labels are also a great gift for teens headed to college.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

How do they work?

Cloth labels are versatile textile tabs or stickers that can be stuck or ironed on to clothes. Made of tough, long-lasting, and color fast materials, like Polyester, these labels for kids come in several colors and designs.

The labels are highly customizable, ensuring each child has a distinctive, easily recognizable label of their own. Most custom-woven labels allow you to add your child's name or initials to the label, making it even easier to sort children's clothes.

Advantages of custom-woven labels

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).


Custom-woven labels can be used in several ways. Some of the ways by which cloth labels can make your life easier include:

Sorting laundry becomes easy: Invest in cloth labels and say goodbye to sorting woes on laundry days. Have a separate custom-designed label for each family member to ensure each and every piece of clothing ends up in the right closet.

Make it easy for your kids to identify school wear: Attach a cloth label to each of your kid's gym clothes or school uniforms to avoid locker room mix-ups.

No more summer camp mishaps: Do your kids end up misplacing one or more of their clothes each time they go off to camp? Cloth labels can make these summer misadventures a thing of the past. Add a neat sticky tag or iron on label to each of your kid's outfits to make it easy for them as well as others to recognize their stuff and keep them safe.

A color for each family member: Cloth labels are not just for kids. If there are multiple adults in your home, investing in custom labels for each family member can save you from a whole lot of headaches. Items like jeans and sweat shirts can be the devil to sort on laundry days. Add easy identifiers in the form of custom cloth labels to work sorting magic.

Order labels for kids off the Internet to have them delivered to your doorstep. Choose a different color for each child and customize the tags with bright pop colors and sparkly script to make them both pretty as well as practical.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
