How do you make clothes tags?
Learn how to make your own clothing labels. When you only want a few labels or want a one-off custom printed label for a specific project, then here is how you can cheaply make your own clothing labels with a few readily available items. I tested the method I used to make these labels over quite a few washes and they still looked great with minimal fading. Handmade items take time and effort so be proud and add your name!
How do you embroider a clothing label?
FABRIC – This must be 100% cotton to absorb the ink. I used an unbleached calico but white or pale colors look nice too. Obviously, the black printing will show up more on white labels. If your fabric has any finishing chemicals in it to make it stiffer, then give it a wash first for maximum absorbency.
SETTING SOLUTION – White vinegar
INTERFACING – Fusible Interfacing. I prefer double-sided interfacing, but single-sided will work as well.
How do you make a name tag?
Clothing labels give that final professional finishing touch to your sewn garment. They are a necessity if you are selling the sewn articles to others. I sometimes make these labels with my kids’ names on them as a sort of identification on their clothes. They also proudly mark the clothes sewn by me as my own.
With the methods described in this post, you can easily make these labels at a minimal cost. It would help if you had an inkjet printer which I assume you have. (Do not worry if you don’t have an inkjet printer; there are other options like embroidering the letters as a beautiful (but labor intensive) way of personalizing your clothes)
What are clothing tags made of?
So along with keeping and loving some of the pieces I’ve made, I also wanted a way to “tag” them as my creations. So I started looking around at some fun options, and ultimately decided to try something a little unique. tag maker for clothes
How do you make a homemade hang tag?
Here’s another easy way to add a label to your sewn goods. These printed labels on ribbon were fun to create and were the perfect tiny little accent to these Business Card Holders. The pros here are that you can make a bunch fairly quickly. The cons are that I think they’d wash out eventually (but I figured a business card holder isn’t going to be washed a lot so I haven’t tested this theory) and that you have to have an ink jet printer to make them.
What paper is used to make tags?
Since then, I’ve changed the children’s handmade wardrobe, putting labels on the back of every piece of clothing. However, the labels on my clothes are better than those on the back of store-bought clothes. First of all, my labels are cute, so I put them on the outside of my clothes, not the inside, because there will be scratches on the inside. Second, I don’t have scratchy labels on my clothes! Third, my tag had no size information (although now THAT I think about it, that actually helped. Care must be taken to add size information to future tags…) .
What paper is used to make hang tags?
1. Use a flat, plain ribbon. The smoother the better. This helps to get a nice, clean stamp. Any ribbon woven tightly with natural fibers will work well.
My favorite label ribbon (pictured above) is a plaid ribbon made in China that I bought locally. Your local fabric store may have something similar.
2. If you can’t find the right ribbon (or you just want to get started on your project right away), take the edge from your favorite light-colored fabric! You can also use twill tape.
3. You can also use any plain weave fabric. Light and tightly woven fabrics (such as poplin, voile or shirt) are best. Trim the edges with pin shears and cut a few lines in the grain to create the edges, or use serge to finish the edges. Iron the cloth well before you iron it.
