DIY Fabric Labels

DIY Fabric Labels

Give your projects a professional look with these DIY Fabric Labels! This beginner sewing project is also a great way to label clothing for children.

From the blogger: "Learn how to make custom fabric labels using your home printer for your sewing projects. These labels can be used on quilts or clothing, and best of all are really cheap to make. Once you have made your fabric labels, you can sew them on to your project or use double-sided interfacing for a new-sew option. You can make these labels with any natural fabric, and lighter colors with black ink work the best."

I am always interested in various methods of creating DIY fabric labels. This particular article and its very clear instructions and photos is just perfect for a first time DIY effort. No need to mirror image words before printing which can be awkward depending on the type of word processing program used.
