I've wanted some fabric labels forever to sew onto things I make. I just think they are cute and make things more personal. Ok, and Nana Company always sews cute labels onto everything. I'm to cheap to order any so I though I'd try and make some by myself. I was pleasantly surprised when my little idea worked. I thought maybe some of you would like a tutorial so you can make some of your own. I think you'll be surprised at how easy it is.
- 9x12" piece of fabric
- 9x12" piece of light Heat and Bond
- Ink Jet Printer
Step One - Iron your fabric onto the Heat and Bond. Do not take of the paper backing.
Step Two - After you've ironed the fabric onto the Heat and Bond, cut it down so that's it measures 8 1/2" x 11". I ironed mine again after this just to make sure it adhered well.
Using Photo shop or whatever program your comfortable with, type up some labels. Load your fabric sheet into your printer and it should print just like it would on a normal piece of fabric. At the bottom of this post I've typed up some labels if you would like to download and print them.
Here are my gray patches sewn onto the burp cloths I recently made. I could use a little practice with my zig zag stitch.
Here are some labels I made up if you would like them. I'm by no means a graphic designer so they are nothing special, but if you would like to download them just click on them!
