DIY Labels

I got this Iron-on Transfer paper which I always wanted to have from my BIL in Indonesia. I've been wanting to try the fabric label like I saw in Patchwork Pottery's Tutorial few months back. Finally, yesterday I got the chance to try it after my DH bought me a canon pixma ink jet printer...Thank you so much, dear..:). The printer worked wonderfully. In fact, I tried both using my friend, Agnes' design and I tried the plain letter one.
 I love the colored ones (though I should have made it bigger). It turned out very clear and I iron it on a plain  cotton fabric and know what..after I cut it, the fabric don't fray...yay!!!..




Second one, I used the plain letters "chez vies" and I iron it on  grosgrain ribbon. The mistake I made here is I cut the strips too narrow. Well the letter perfectly fit in the middle part of the ribbon but I should have cut it about 1' wide. Lesson learnt!



Another lesson I learn is that while ironing, DO NOT move your iron (like when you're ironing). Just press it firmly on the design. Otherwise it will smudge.


 

Now let's get down making something and start using those labels...:)

Happy Crafting
