this was a great tut, i didn't have any iron on transfer or ribbon so i did my graphics, cut a piece of med-heavy iron on interfacing to 8x10 ( the size of a sheet of computer paper), ran it through my ink jet printer and wooo-hooo a sheet of iron-on labels. Thanks fpr the great idea.
That's great! I never thought of that. Personally I still prefer ribbon though, just cause it gives the whole label a bit of sheen.As far as fraying goes
... What I do is I cut the tag and leave just a tiny edge and then I spray the whole back of the tag with spray adhesive. Then I stick it to whatever I'm creating. Best part is you don't have to pin it while you sew the edges down. & the glue eventually dries and prevents fraying along with the zigzag stitch along the sides. There are many methods but I've found this one to be the easiest for me.
PS. Thanks for all the comments! I'm glad that everyone has enjoyed the tut so much!
