Tips for Printing Personalized DIY Quilt Labels
There are some important steps to keep in mind when printing your own DIY Quilt Labels. First, use printable fabric sheets and an ink jet printer. For the best results, set your printer properties to ‘Best Quality‘. This will allow more ink which gives you a better quality printed label.
Do not use transfer sheets as they are not permanent. The recommended printable fabric sheets are 100% cotton and stabilized to feed easily through the printer. Secondly. for writing on your label use a permanent marker that will not wick or bleed as it will make the writing difficult to read.
Once the labels are printed onto the fabric sheets, let it dry for 15 minutes or so. Then heat set the ink from the back, pressing with a warm (NOT HOT!) iron for more permanency. Sometimes the printable fabric sheets may have a bit of a curl at the edge. If this becomes a problem when feeding the sheets into the printer, simply give it a light pressing on the back side. This will smooth out and straighten the edges, making them easily fed into the printer.
Get Started Making Your Christmas Quilt Labels
Once this is complete, write the details you want included and sign your quilt label. Then I heat set the quilt label again, from the back. Once it cools, it may be trimmed if needed and prepped to be sewn onto your quilt back. Additionally, pressing a warm iron on the quilt label back can also help if you find the paper difficult to peel off. Then the paper will be easily removed.
Once you get started making your own quilt labels you may not want to stop. No problem, these adorable quilt label patterns have many other uses for holiday projects. Consider using them as gift tags or greeting cards. You can even make your own post cards and send them in the mail!
