Easy Tutorials for Making Fabric Labels
A quick activity that can save you lots of money and add personality and charm to your homemade items is creating your own DIY printable fabric labels! Adding a cute label makes your products look polished and genuine, regardless of whether you sell them, give them away as gifts, or just make something for yourself.
Here is a guide on how to create your labels at home, not just for clothing but also for purses, jewelry, and other crafts.
Using printable Fabric Sheets, you can create labels that are machine washable. You may sew the labels onto your clothing or another handcrafted item once you print your design straight onto the fabric sheet, press it to fix the ink, then cut it to size.
Computer, graphics program & inkjet printer
Regular printer paper
Iron-on transfer paper
Utility knife, cutting mat & metal ruler
Iron & ironing board
STEP 1:Create you Label Design
Create your image using your preferred program and a 300ppi resolution for a clear image. Your image’s height should be less than your ribbon’s width. To see how they fit on your ribbon, print some out on plain paper, cut them out, and then try them. Fill the full page with photographs that are repeated in rows with an inch or so between each image. There may not be much space between the rows. *Don’t forget to flip your image!
STEP 2: Printing your Design Labels
On a computer, design your layout. Let’s create a simple colorful text design with MS Word. First, print a test copy of the design on paper. Print the design onto your cloth sheet after you’re satisfied (on the fabric side). To avoid wasting any of your fabric paper, you might want to start with only one or two labels until you get the hang of it.
Step 3: Cut the Images out
Ideally, cut the material into long strips using your utility knife, cutting mat, and ruler. When ironing, it will take less time if you leave them in strips, and your fingertips won’t get burned as easily. (I am aware that these mats are not to be used with utility knives, but it is preferable to chopping up my brand-new desk!)
Step 4: Dry & Iron
Give the ink at least 10 minutes to dry. Remove the sheet’s paper backing. For 1-2 minutes, dry iron on the high, design side. (Avoid pressing down with the iron too firmly or your image may be warped.) *Be careful not to overheat the iron. Your image will melt if you iron it for too long or at a too high temperature.
Step 5: Rinse & Iron Once More
Rinse your labels in cold water and pat dry with paper towels to make them colorfast. To set the ink, dry the iron again on high until dry.
Step 6: Attach a Label
The label should be sewn onto your clothing by hand or machine. It’s done! Your goods now look very authentic! After washing, the label’s edges will somewhat fray. Simply sew your labels on all four sides when adding them to your item if this annoys you. I’m done now!
