This year I want to keep things organized, and with that in mind I have been affixing labels everywhere I can. I am using these labels in the kitchen, but they work anywhere!
For this project you will need the following MATERIALS:
*adhesive back fabric sheets (i used these)
*embroidery floss (in a color that nicely contrasts your fabric)
and these TOOLS:
*iron, ironing board and press cloth
Embroider you word or design.
Following the manufacturer's instructions, adhere your fusible web to the back side of your fabric label. I used a press cloth in order to protect my embroidery.
Remove paper backing to reveal sticky stuff.
Position fabric label on fabric paper and fuse with your iron. Again, I used a press cloth here to protect my embroidery (not shown in photo).
Cut out your label.
Remove paper backing and affix label to your clean, dry surface. Make sure to gently push and bubbles out toward the edges.
P.S. If you have any extra little scraps of sticker-backed fabric you can cut them into shapes to make stickers.
They are especially cute for scrapbooks and notecards.
