Rubber Stamp & Woven Labels

I bought this rubber stamp kit years ago and use it regularly to stamp my address on my outgoing mail. This is my 3rd home in 5 years so it’s great that I can change the stamp as and when I please without having to buy a new one.

It’s a little bit tedious and time consuming to place the tiny letters to make the stamps. And I assure you, there were quite a few cross-eyed moments! But I really like the “homemade-ness” of the stamped item.

So I stamped the reverse of the foam stamped tags. Some in red ink and some in black. What do you think?

Now for the actual Amigurumi Pears. I bought customized woven labels from this UK company. They were cheaper, more professional looking and had more options than any of the Australian companies I looked at.

A woven label is sewn onto the bottom of each Amigurumi Pear.

I also made bags out of disposable pillow cases I got at a bargain price from a clearance warehouse. Yip, disposable pillow cases! Necessity is the mother of invention. 🙂

Each pear is placed into it’s own handmade bag.

And off they go to another loving home where I’m sure there will be plenty of hugs and smiles. Au revoir, my lovelies!

    First! 😉 The whole package looks very professional and will add to the pleasure of getting and unwrapping a pear. I think that label company is the same one I used back when I used to design/make/sell teddy bears. Good quality labels. Well done you!

    The stamping is a great idea. I love the stamped look too. I also really like the disposable pillowcases–what a great idea!

    You really are my inspiration, Han! Seriously! Do you want to adopt me as your kid?

    Wow – you are a marketing guru! I love the look of the stamps on the back – I love the circular “style” with the .com address. What a fantastic mix of contemporary and old world.
    You’ve put so much work in to this – no doubt it will pay off.

  5. Marie says:

    Your packaging is perfect!

  6. vanessa says:

    I love how you can make your own circular text stamps!
    and it’s hard to say goodbye! I’m sure your pears will be looked after real fine in their new home!
    I was wondering, where do you get your eye’s for the pears?

  7. Linda says:

    Disposable pillow cases? Never heard of them, whatever next. But yes they make a great wrap for your pears.

  8. Tania says:

    love your stamps,im pretty sure i had a set similar!

  9. AmyGurumi says:

    I use a similar rubber stamp with replaceable letters; I like that they don’t produce “perfect” prints (at least mine don’t!).

    Love the way you’ve packaged the pears. Cute & creative. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Amy

    That stamp kit is so great! My husband and I have been married for 5 years, and we’re at our fifth address!

  11. Kimberly Pye says:

    I really like the textured look of these pear stamps. It also seems like a great way to start making stamps without making a big investment. I just might have to try this soon…

    (Also, I just realized the other “Kimberly” is me too. Oops! Using different names all over the place! :-P)

    Hi Salihan, I haven’t been to your blog for a little while….I love how it looks and all the different projects that you are working on.
    I just noticed today that you are the top contributor to the Free Knit and Crochet group over at Flickr.
    Pretty impressive!
    I also love the detail you have included when packaging up your pears and congratulations on starting to sell your patterns!

    The package looks like a present rather than something you plunked down cash for! I love it! So cute!

  18. Tiffany says:

    Wow where did you get that stamp kit? Not that we live on the same continent or anything, but that’s pretty nifty.

    And honestly I keep being amazed at your creativity. Those cute bags and tags for your pears? Wonderful!
