Homemade Printed Cloth Labels

Hi everyone

Hope that you are all enjoying your weekend so far.  We have lovely blinding, sunshine but it is feeling very chilly!  Can't complain though as at least it isn't raining!!

I've been wanting some cloth labels for my makes for a long time but they are so expensive to buy!  I been searching and saw various ways of making them yourself either by stamping or by printing onto t-shirt transfer paper.  I finally had a go at using the t-shirt transfer way and was really pleased with the results.  I managed to make 105 labels from just one sheet!  I used some plain cotton tape this is around 25p a metre - I had some in cream and some in white so used both colours so that they would  match with items that I make!  Sometimes a white label will look better on a colour than a cream one and vice versa!!  I know - that makes me sound abit OCD!

Here are my finished labels

I've stitched them onto the back of my felt shabby hearts.  I think it gives them a more professional look and it means that although my crafting name is on the heart, it doesn't get in the way of the front design of the heart.

I will do a tutorial and pop it on my side bar for you to have a go.
