120 Custom Labels for only $10!

Pin It!
After reading about how to make your own labels on the Blog See Kate Sew, I decided to give it a try.
It was actually an extremely easy process! I made my design in Photoshop and then ordered a custom Fat Quarter of fabric from Spoonflower. It came in about a week and only cost $10 and 120 of my label designs fit on one Fat Quarter!

I have to say, I am pretty happy with how they turned out!


  1. I absolutely love this idea - I was looking for labels earlier this week and those thing are expensive! Did you leave the edges raw or did you iron them under, then sew? Thank you!

  2. Hi Shalon - I did iron the raw edges under. After multiple attempts (and burning my fingers many times) I found a pretty effective way of securing the raw edges under. I just added a post this morning explaining how to iron the edges under: http://coldhandswarmheartcrafts.blogspot.com/2012/01/tip-for-perfectly-folding-your-fabric.html

    Hope this helps!

  3. Wonderful - thank you again! I can't wait to design my own. :)

  4. What a great tutorial. I just ordered my fabric from Spoonflower (http://twinfamous.blogspot.com/2012/01/customized-labels-part-i.html). Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  5. Great blog, informative and up to date. Bookmarking your page. Thanks and more power!
