Silhouette Project {+ Freebie}

Isn't it funny how one little project leads to another?

I make my own laundry detergent using one of the numerous recipes floating around the internet. I normally make liquid form, but wound up letting my batch get too low to whip another one up to be ready on time. We can't just wear dirty clothes (well, we could but what kind of Mother would I be? LOL).

So I decided to make a dry detergent. So that lead to needing a container to put it in which lead to using the Silhouette and black vinyl to make a label.

The label is about 4"x4". Anyone else who has a Silhouette can download it here. I uploaded the file to to be able to share it with my bloggy friends!

I try to link up to these great weekly parties:

Thank you for stopping by to say "Hi". We love getting your comments. If you like our little blog, we'd love for you to become a {Follower} so you can join in on the fun.


  1. Funny, I JUST did a tutorial on this! I LOVE the label. Thank you! PS, how do you keep your whites so bright? I find mine are a little dingy, I've been experimenting to find the answer.

  2. Cute! I'm waiting on my Silhouette to be delivered, can't wait to try this when it comes in!

  3. That labeled container is lovely. I so want a silhouette :)
    I'm a new follower from the Monday craft Linky Party, hope you will stop by:

  4. Every canister needs a label right? :) I make my own liquid laundry soap too and a dry version for washing diapers. I keep the liquid in an old detergent container but now I'm thinking that should have a label too right?

  5. I love the font you chose. I've been wanting to try that detergent too. Thanks for linking to the party.

  6. Very nice! Love the font! Thanks for linking it up to this week's Catch a Glimpse party!

  7. Very cute container!!! I'd love to know how you made your dry mix! Thank you for linking up to Sew Woodsy last week, and for being a loyal linker!
