How to Make Fabric Labels at Home

"Here is my tested method for making fabric labels at home! These labels will be washable and durable. This method is great for making labels for handmade items of clothing or even for your handmade items in general. It's very cost effective to make your own labels if you are starting your own little handmade sewing business, as you can customize the labels to have anything you want on them. I even show you a little hack for making custom one of a kind labels as well!"

Personalized fabric labels that can be printed onto transfer paper and then onto twill tape or satin ribbon have so many uses sew them into childrens book bags or jackets with their names applied, into hand-made fabric gift items, or even onto a crocheted or knitted afghan so loved ones know who made the special item for them.
