after answering bunches of emails asking how i make my fabric labels for some of my products, i figured i’d make it easier and just put it into a little tutorial!
this teeny 3/4″ label is simply hot glued on!
this is what i start with. i get this pack of 10 sheets of printable fabric from michael’s. i think its around $15 so i always use a 40% off coupon, because $15 is ridiculous.
then my wonderful sister designed a pretty little label for me and set up a pdf for me to just print out. i have no idea how to do that, but i know you can use a label making template in microsoft word, and other similar applications. just be sure that you leave room between the labels for cutting.
then i print! i let each sheet dry for a couple minutes before handling it since it takes a bit for the ink to dry. i peel off the paper backing, then i use my rotary cutter and mat and cut up a whole bunch of tiny little squares. if you’re using these labels on an item that may get handled a lot, you may want to add fray check to your edges. if you use these tags on an item you plan on washing, there are special instructions for that on the package: rinse fabric in cool water, let dry, then press.
and that’s it – amazing, right? ok, maybe not so amazing, but super easy and you can even use this to personalize different projects!
