{Tutorial} DIY Printed Fabric Label



There are so many tutorial you find online how to make DIY fabric label. I have one DIY Label tutorial using fabric pen and now I am going to share how I do DIY printed fabric label. 

First of all, here in India I don't get freezer paper, so I used fusible interfacing which is called "pasting" by my local supplies shop. It's a thin woven interfacing which is used as backing for machine embroidery. There is one with glue on one side (hence it's fusible) and there's one without glue. I used the one with glue on one side. 

So what you need is :
~ a piece of fabric --- cut into A4 size 
~ a piece of fusible interfacing --- cut into A 4 size
~ transparent nail polish
~ Computer & printer (I used laser jet by the way) 

#1 - Design your label on your computer. I am not very savvy with computer program, so I use MS word and used a mailing label template to create my label :D 



#2. Fuse your fabric on to the fusible interface. Be careful with the setting. Set the iron on WOOL and press few second on one side before moving it around. Than way you will get a crisp papery fabric. I used linen in here. 



#3. If you're happy with your design, print it out onto the fused fabric. I suggest you run a little print test on paper or at the back of the fabric (the interface side)

and when you're done, cut and dab the edges with a little transparent nail polish to prevent it from fraying. Well, unless you have fray check, which I don't ^_^. 




It's easy, right? You can add your logos or if you have color printer that will be wonderful. 

I made my quilt label the same way and I read somewhere (sorry forgot the blog), if you soak your printed label in white vinegar for 10-15 mins that will prevent the ink from fading. 

This label is for stuff which does not need frequent washing.
