Fabulous Fabric Labels

27. November 2012 06:46 by tbev | 0 Comments

Remember the little labels lovingly stitched inside the sweater from grandma? So sweet, but who has that kind of time anymore? Actually, you do! Thanks to modern technology, it's easier than ever to add a personal touch to all of your hand-crafted holiday gifts! There are lots of fun options, either do-it-yourself or hire-it-out. Here are some ideas to get you started:

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

If you want to create your own labels, Patchwork Pottery has a great step-by-step tutorial for you.

DIY labels get even simpler with these amazing fabric sheets that get printed directly from your inkjet printer!

I also love this fabric roll, which allows you to use as little or as much fabric as you want!

4my3boyz Personalized Labels

Want the personalized label without the work? Hire it out. Personalized satin ribbons can be ordered online.

In fact, you can even have your own logo or special design printed on these custom labels. 

Your handmade gifts deserve to bear your signature, so try these ideas out. And while you're at it, create a set of labels for one of your crafting friends. It's a fabulous gift idea!
