Noni Labels. . . The Perfect Finishing Touch For Your Bags

A tiny red felted purse by Nora Bellows of Noni Designs sits on a wooden background. Centered on its front is a metal "A Noni Design" label.

Noni’s lead-free, pewter labels are made in the USA so they support our homegrown industries and American jobs. I’ve kept the price as reasonable as I could to make them affordable. 

A pile of A Noni Design labels are arranged on a wooden surface.

What you’ll need to attach the label to your bag or purse:

A sharp, medium-gauge sewing needle, nylon beading thread or some other really sturdy thread (you wouldn’t want them to come off), and 4 little size 8 seed beads in silver, silver-lined clear (my favorite for an all-purpose bead), or the color of your choice.

Here’s how to attach them:

  1. Place the label where you want it. Measure to make sure it is centered or exactly as you want it.
  2. Place a tiny drop of super glue on the back and stick it down in place.
  3. Bring a threaded needle up from underneath through the felted fabric and through a label hole.
  4. Catch a size 8 seed bead on the needle and pull the needle through the bead.
  5. Then return the needle to the same hole out of which it just came. This creates a thread “loop” around the bead.
  6. Pull the needle through the whole and pull snug. The bead is now secure on the front and positioned in one of holes on the label.
  7. Make a knot on the back to secure the bead. Do not break or cut the thread. Instead, travel through the felt across the inside to the next hole and repeat steps 3 – 7.
  8. Finish off.
  9. Admire!
