It's inevitable that you will find yourself at some stage in the lost property section looking for part of your child's missing school uniform.
With my eldest starting secondary school and having just spent a small fortune, I will be labelling everything from her blazer to hair ties!
Here are a few simple labelling ideas that will save you time in the lost property pile.
1. Making your own iron on labels are a sinch. You can use any type of fabrics here (florals are adorable) but due to strict uniform requirements I have stayed with school colours.
Add a product such as Steam a Seam or Heat N Bond No Sew Adhesive to a piece of fabric. Cut into strips the required size with pinking shears (so fabric won't fray). Add name with a fabric marker and iron to the back of uniform label as per product instructions.
2. If your little one is just starting school/kinder, it can be a little overwhelming when they see a row of school bags, artsmocks or even chair bags that are all in school colours.
Try personalising items with matching fabric covered buttons. It will help them instantly recognise their item without having their name blazoned across their gear. Cover your own in their favourite fabric or buy some that are already covered.
