Thanks for this tutorial, Penny! I'm going to order some of those fabric sheets today and I can't wait to get started. Glad you had a fun time at your conference. Thanks again! =)


How does the ink on the labels stand up to washing?


Thank you so much for this little tutorial. I was looking at this fabric the other day and it said that you couldn't wash this after running through the printer.

Thanks again

I'm happy you had such a wonderful time at your conference!!

LOVE the labels...ya know, if I sewed anything at all, ever, I'd love the tutorial too. And of course, the pink and brown baby stuff is to die for (as read in Lisa's blog). Great job, as usual!


Thanks so much Penny - you answered all my questions! blessings, marlene


Thanks for the tutorial Penny -- they look great! Do you have any problem with the ends raveling?

Thank you Penny - that was a good and clear explanation. Your labels just set a cute finishing touch.


The labels sure make items look more professional. Thanks for the tutorial.


Ahhh...makes sense! Thanks for the info...hey, I left a thank you over at my blog, but also wanted to again thank you for the gift that you sent me!
That was so sweet of you....really, I am trying to think of a way to repay you! :)

Made my weekend...and your work is great!


I was just going to order some woven labels that take 4-6 weeks, but this would be so much faster! I had the same questions though about raveling and washing...

Thanks for the great idea!


Having another DUH moment! I've used those fabric sheets before on other projects. Now why didn't I ever think to make labels with them? Guess that's why I need you Penny! Thanks for sharing!!! What a great idea!!!


Thank you so much for this little tutorial,
I love your work is beautiful, congratulation.
Kisses from Chile.


Hi Penny!
This is a great tut! I will try it if I ever can get back to the fabric store :)
and ps, would love to have a picnic!
if only TN and CO were closer!


Thanks for the update Penny! :-)


Well you are such a smartie Penny. Thank you. I'd have never thought of that!

Amy @ parkcitygirl

Thanks! I've seen those and thought I could use some. . .


Thanks - fantastic information!


What a great project! I'll be linking to this in today's Daily DIY.

Whoa! This tute ROCKS! I definitely have to share it. I've scheduled a link to this post to go live from my blog mid-day (Central USA time), August 31. Thank you so much for making this resource available on line.



I've been trying to come up with a good way to tag my children's clothing. Since they do hand-me-downs, I wanted something sturdy but that could be removed or changed. This is a great solution. Thanks for the tutorial :)


Thanks for sharing the info about these colorfast sheets! I make a lot of handknits and wasn't happy with the pre-made labels available. Now I can make my own. Hooray.

I'll be stopping by your blog often. Thanks to Crafty Planet for pointing me here.

Hello! I want to thank you for this great tutorial. I've just post 3 photo of my labels made with your help at my blog, and I credit you with a link to your wonderful tutorial!
Thank you a lot, Giusypatch


Looks great! I found your tut via Bliss by Heather. These are great labels -- love 'em. I'm going to take a crack at this later today. Cheers!


great tutorial! I have seen this idea elsewhere with nothing about washing results, which seems to be most important to anyone thinking about sewing these into washable items. You are the only one who followed up with a bit about washing results and your picture was very helpful. Thank you for that! Now I can make my own labels, which is so fantastic.

I was wondering, can you wait a while after printing before continuing with the other steps. I'll need to print my design at work, but then bring it home to iron and rinse etc. will that work? or will it be too late to set the ink?

Michelle S

I love the tutorial! Just what I was looking for :o)


Thank you! this really helped a lot!

Alia Ghulam

Hi there! I just found you and your site and this tute! I have been looking into doing this for a little while now and love it. Thank you! Question: How do I, in word, not print the table lines or grid??? Is there a way to hide it? Thanks for any info. Alia in Muscat

ML Bongorno

Thanks for the tutorial. Great explanation! Very kind of you to share!! I tried it myself and it worked well.


I have just come across this tutorial. Thank you so much, I have been wanting to add my own labels to my knitware. I am going to have a go at this.


GREAT tutorial -- thank for the links. I was really having a hard time finding the right product for this. Thank you!


I love your tutorial! I've posted a link to it on my blog: http://wildsparrowstudio.blogspot.com/2010/05/my-one-track-mind.html
I tried to track-back, but it doesn't seem to show up (perhaps because I use Blogger? I'm new to blogging).
Thank you for the great tute!

Amazing label tutorial shared by you. I love to make such types of label. Great job done by you.


Thank you thank you! I almost paid over $70 for 300 labels from an etsy seller. This will save me a bundle! Quick question: how did you create this template in Word? Did you bring up an existing template form the archives, or did you just create cells? If so, I'm not sure how to do this, other than in excel...

Brilliant! Thanks for sharing. I love the clean, simple look of the label, and this tutorial looks like just what I needed!

Where do you buy the fabric sheets to make the labels in your printer?


Thank you for the idea and instructions. This is just what I was looking for. (You can see my finished label here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wittyfamily/7262072926/in/photostream/.)


You're very welcome, Amy!


How did you get that cute flower to paste into word?
