    Just tried it and it's great! I have desk jet printer (Brother HL-5470W) that has the cartridge toner. I used satin ribbon 7/8" wide so I just had to line up the ribbon on the freezer paper just right before ironing it on (I printed my labels on regular paper first so I could use that as a guide for where to place my ribbon – which I just taped on one edge with regular tape). Here's a link to my Ravelry project page that shows the result. http://ravel.me/jsorensens2/bsj1 Beyond thrilled! Thanks!

    I did a sheet of small labels on muslin. After they were ironed I soaked them in a water and vinegar solution to help set the ink. Washed it again after that and the ink seemed to stay a bit better. Not sure about frequent washes.

    +TheCraftyGemini; Hi I just post to say thanks for sharing this video I always wanted to know how to make your own fabric labels without spending bucks on them cause I'vw heard they are not that cheap in my country (Barbados);Though I've never brought any labels from the craft store. Anyways My Question is:What type fabric you use, to print the info' on & also Is they a substitute thing you can use to do this project with as opposed to using freezer paper; just asking & Would Foil Paper /Cutrite Paper Work because I don't think using wax paper would work am I right also asking. Anyways thanks again & I look forward to your reply a.s.a.p. I would definitely try technique out I really hope work out for me as it did for you. Now I can add labels to my handmade cloth bags I make to sell along with other crafts I make as well.

    girl you are brilliant. I don't know why I didn't think of this. this is so much more cost-effective than ordering tags because I like to add the year that I make things. and if I mess it up I can start over instead of pulling out the embroidery machine hooking up the embroidery hoop and hoping that it doesn't snag on the back of my quilt material.
