homemade labels

I finally made labels to sew on my bags and I did it the cheapest way possible because that's how I role. I spent $7 for iron-on transfer paper. I like the way they turned out, nice and simple, I think that may be the key when using this method. I ironed my design on to scrap fabric, cut them out and then folded the edges down.

There's a lot of neat ideas for making your own labels on the cheap, here's a few I liked...

300 Labels for $20
Hand Stamped Labels
Labels Using Ink Jet Fabric sheets
Iron-on Transfer Labels


  1. how awesome! :) i love the font you picked! :)

  2. These turned out great! I've been trying some myself lately but it's a bit of trial and error as to how long to keep the iron on them! Quite a few haven't worked out so good, but hopefully i'll get there!

  3. Great idea! I love how clean and simple they are. I'm a new follower from the hop.


  4. What a great idea! My first etsy attempt was at little clutches, and my handmade tags were so tacky! Yours look great!

  5. what a cute idea!! i'm thinking about buying a sewing machine so i'll need something to sew onto my new creations! stopping by from the creation corner hop...thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I am just reminding everyone about tonights link party that runs Friday evening through Mondays!
