I advise using a fairly long stitch length setting on your machine, otherwise those labels will indeed be an absolute bu**er to get off again! And if there's one thing worse than sewing labels on, it's having to fiddle around trying to unpick a previous label before you can start!!I threw in the towel and got my steam driven machine out of the loft ... and hey presto - the labels went on a treat. Not sure if I'll ever get them off again (only need to if youngest gets in to CH!) ... but they're there and they're there to stay!!
