Thank you SO MUCH for this tutorial! I can't believe how easily (and cheaply) I will be able to make labels! I love you for this! Once I create mine (which will be very soon), I'll post them!

genius!!  now i can use a graphic on my labels instead of just a name. 

TIP FOR ANTI-FRAYING - i use a product called "Fray Block" that i buy from joann fabrics.  it comes in a turquoise and purple squeeze tube.  you just squeeze a little bit of the clear liquid onto the edge of whatever frays.  it dries clear and won't wash off.  (it has a really powerful chemical odor when it's still wet, so if you're prone to addictions...)

if anyone is interested in going the printed fabric route rather than the iron-on route, here's a great deal on those inkjet fabric sheets. $12.38 for a pack of 10 sheets (8.5 x11):

I thought I'd add this bit of info to the fabric printing thread...
If you go to this site:
http://www.bryerpatch.com/faq/bjs.htm
you can purchase a chemical solution called "bubblejet set" that will allow you to print on any cotton fabric.
The way you do this is to pre-rinse the fabric in the solution, then iron on a sheet of freezer paper to your fabric, and run it through your printer like paper.  When you're done, you just peel off the freezer paper.  It's so cool.  I tried this without the chemicals (just the cotton fabric and freezer paper) and got beautiful (although not waterproof) results.  The possibilities for this are endless when you think about it.  Smiley

oh, i've seen this done with a very fine silk weave, which was great because the silk was so fine that the transfer paper sealed the edges, but this is even better! (i guess the nice thing about the silk though, is that you can make other shaped labels. square ones work really well for quilts, to sign and date them. but i rarely finish a quilt, i'm much more interested in labels for clothing and purses)

i can't believe i didn't think of ribbon! i've been bemoaning my laziness to order a 1/2 yard of the silk online, or to get off my ass and silkscreen some ribbon, and i had all that ribbon and iron on paper just sitting there!

Thanks so much for sharing! I was going to HAND STITCH my name on EACH of my tags. Funny.

I have a question, I want to iron it onto white, smooth canvas material (I can't find a right ribbon size). Do you think it will work? Also, I don't think it will fray easily, especially since it will have the iron-on layer on it. It will probably turn out fine, but I'm not sure.

Thanks!

Thanks for the awesome tutorial - I don't sell anything, but I make a lot of stuff for ppl for free (sometimes minus materials and in exchange for other piddly things) so this is great!
