Fabric labels oh Fabric Labels…. I have been online researching these babies for months! Finally I found a good (cheap) solution, a tutorial to make my own. This idea is genius!
Laurraine from Patchwork Pottery has the whole tutorial on her blog here. She has a ton of other great stuff too, so you have to check it out. They were really simple to make and I love the way they look on the twill tape. Also, I didn’t spend a fortune which is always a plus! I made 1/2″ and 1″ labels. I have already made a few bibs and added labels to the back, I feel so professional now hehe :)
In other exciting news, I think I am going to buy a serger soon! I think I am going to get this one… any thoughts, opinions, reviews??
Taylor! Your labels turned out fantastic! What kind of transfer paper did you use? Hugs, Laurraine
Thanks, I love them!! I used the Joanns Fabric Brand, I think I didnt leave the iron on them long enough at first then I realized it and the last batch was much better.
You just saved Kate Thorne Designs a boat load of money!!!
I don’t know much about sergers, but I’ve been thinking about getting the same one!

I wish I would have seen this post sooner – I spent almost $200 on custom labels a few months ago. Of course I got hundreds of them (which I really don’t need…but you had to buy in quantity). Good news is after I use them up, I’ll follow your post. ;O)

I used that tutorial to make some labels, too. They look great until you wash the item a few times. The labels start to wrinkle/fade, so I think they’re awesome for things that won’t be washed much :) Also, I got that serger for Christmas but still haven’t opened it – I’m scared! haha

I have a Brother Serger, in fact, all my machines are Brother. I have been buying Brother since 1989 and I have loved everyone of them. Anyway, you will never go wrong with buying a Brother product, no matter what it is. The product help is wonderful, they are always there to help you with any problem. I would highly recommend the Brother Serger.
