I've always wanted to have my personalised labels, but really didn't want to spend $50 - $100 on bulk buying.
But, I do think it makes a hand made gift look special & a little more professional.
So I remembered that I had t-shirt transfer paper.
I thought I'd see how it worked out. on a couple of different fabrics
Transfer paper (on light fabrics)
Ribbon (what ever type of label you want)
Pretty Storage Container
Step 1: Typed up my name and printed it on plain paper a few times to get the size correct.
You must make sure you flip the image, because when ironed on it will read right.
Please Note: I am really not that great on the computer, so after a lot of goggling, I finally found out how to flip the image!!
I used Microsoft Word, once I had typed it up, I went to Print Setup - Advanced Options - Mirror Image (it is turned off) Turn On
I also found out, that you MUST change it for every separate print you do.
Step 2: Print onto transfer paper
Step 3: Cut them out
Step 4: Please print down on tape (fabric)
Step 5: Follow the iron on transfer steps - temperature & time
Should look like this
Personally I really like the heading tape label. It's cheap, gives texture & looks nice once sewed on.
