whoosh - get a pair of scissors or something and poke/cut a small hole in the top back of the wellie, then feed string through and tie in a knot forming a loop about um, 12 cm's long.
anyone, if you order the sew in tapes, they come in longish strings saying the name about 5 times to each tape (which youre sposed to cut off singularly ertc). leave them as long tapes, feed them through the care label of garment and tie in knot at end. voila; named and hanging looped in one, and not a needle in sight.
this yr i have ordered specially made ribbon with all 3 boys names and shared surname on, in 5m minimum length. tis for weddings and stuff i think, onloy i plan to use it as abouve for all 3's uniform/s [polishes fingernails on shirt at dastardly ingenuity]
i think youll find my skiving cost effective and easy peasy solutions work just as well.
oh, and you dont need seperate shoe stickers to the other stickers you get for water bottles etc, as the normal plastic stickers work great in shoes. got all that at easy2name too (mn discount, not that i ever remember to use the bloody code)
Another idea; buy name labels of choice whether they be sew on, or iron on transfers, (yes easy2Name is good for these), then get some cheap cotton binding tape about 1cm wide from a haberdashery, sew/iron on name tape to a length of this and attach to relevant clothing. If you are buying name tapes at a cost per label, this will make it cheaper and the end result will be sturdier.
