Labels

Do you add labels to your rugs?  I don't always get around to adding a label but do think it is a good idea to add them to your rugs.  Here is the label on my Oh Deer rug.   
To make the label,  I printed it from my computer and attached the label to a piece of wool. When I attached the wool to the rug, I wanted something "not too fancy" as this rug does not scream sophisticated but rather  primitive and folky. So I attached the label with red X's.  A little different but I like it.
I'm working on my braiding tips and it is becoming more like a book on how to braid. Do you all want a little tutorial on how to attach braiding to rug or just tips? 
Thanks for stopping by, Maria

Very nice label and much more professional looking than the ones I've managed to create on my computer. Also very nice braiding. I love the look but sure looks like a lot of extra work; particularly when one (me) hates the binding part anyway.

A tutorial would be absolutely splendid ... one with lots of teeny steps for those of us who are braiding challenged. :)
