I need to make some fabric labels to sew onto my goodies for an upcoming craft show that's three weeks away. I had been planning on using printable fabric to make them but I'm out of ink in my printer and don't have the money to purchase the printable fabric. I've thought about embroidery, but that would take lots of time that I really need to be investing into crafting for the craft show. Any ideas???

Everything I can think of will cost you in supplies or a boatload of time. Can you trade with someone for tags?

That's what I'm hopin to do, but I need them by the 23rd because my show is on the !st of May and I need enough time to place them on everything. I only need simple text tags.

I found a tutorial online for printing out labels with tshirt transfer paper, then ironing onto twill tape! Luckily my dear mother in law gave me some tshirt transfer paper, so this is a nice cheap project for me, only the cost of the twill tape!

You can use stamps and ink to make tags on twill tape:
