Mum and TikTok user Jo, who describes herself as an “upcycling” pro and “sewing mum”, shared a video titled “Never have a child lose a cardigan again by doing this.”
She then told the people who follow her account @arosetintedworld: “Here’s an easy sewing clothes labelling tip.
“I usually put labels and stamp my daughter’s clothes, but there’s never anything to hang them with.”
Jo then explained all her trick needs is a leftover piece of rainbow ribbon – or another bright colour will do.
The mum then demonstrated how to do it, showing herself with the ribbon, and a needle.
She continued: “So I keep any little bit of ribbon and use a couple of stitches at either end just to attach it in place.”
Jo then showed how it formed a little loop at the top of the cardigan – perfect for hanging it up and keeping it safe.
She continued: “Now you have a little loop for your child to hang it up at school so they never lose it.”
Jo was also quick to add that it doesn’t matter what your son or daughter’s age is, as the trick works even on the youngest child.
She said: “Even if you’ve got a young child, they can recognise their own piece of clothes by the ribbon.”
After she shared her helpful advice, Jo wrote one additional tip in the comment section.
She said: “I have found even labelled clothes end up in school lost property, so personalise so your child knows their own. Even better, use name ribbon.”
