DIY Clothing Labels

Cute Little You turned me on to DIY clothing labels.
I'm giving away one set of labels here. 

To start - she sent me a bag full of personalized clothing labels. Wonderful? 
Absolutely! That's Cute Little You!

I make so many clothes, and I NEVER use labels. I can't tell you how many times I forget the specific sizes. It can be a big problem.

How can you make your own clothing labels??

To start. You need to buy printable fabric. I picked up this roll of twill fabric at JoAnn. You can also purchase it by the sheet. 
Cut the fabric into 8.5" x 11" sections. 
Run the photo/printable fabric through your printer. 

Peel the paper off the back of the fabric FIRST. (I cut first, then peeled - big mistake.)

Cut into individual sections.

Attach to clothing. 

Totally step up the professionalism of your product.

One thing I did too was add a sheet of heat and bond under my printed fabric so that they were iron on then sew. It seems like they didn't fray as much and kept there shape.
