All you need is a little twine or yarn, a safety pin, scissors and a hole punch. And for those of you that crochet and knit for craft shows, these can maybe even double as price tags for you — simply write the price on the back. Scroll down to see how to print these labels for free. Below, you can see all it takes to use these tags. I place the safety pin UNDER the fabric, poke the pin through to hold the twine then back under and pin. So many lovely little labels.
Feel free to print on regular old paper but I prefer to make these on card stock. Follow the same instructions as given above to print these tags. I hope that you enjoy using these handmade labels. Thanks for these beautiful free labels! Perfect to attach to the handmade gifts. Thanks for sharing. Love the hat too, is that seed stitch? Have you shared the pattern?

It is also great for donating to charity! Here ya go Vicki! Do you have a printable label to attach to hats made for charity? It does not need washing or care directions. Do you know of any on the internet that can be printed out?And while you are at it why not start thinking about the packaging. I was looking on pinterest for ideals and found that many free printable tags for handmade gifts are no longer there. Most of the links were broken. This left me compelled to share the few great ones I found that in fact do actually link to free pdf you can print.
Why add labels to your handmade gifts? Adding tags to your handmade items adds to the beauty and specialness of your creation. You have to admit eye candy packaging makes any gift feel extra special I figure you've spent a lot of time making your gift why not go the extra mile and add the extra special touch. Adding care instructions to your handmade gifts can be very important. Especially if it's knitted from say wool. Knit Picks has a great printable with various levels of care.
If you are photoshop savy I would suggest opening this file in a photo editing software and typing the care instructions on the empty space select the area you want to type and press the type tool, adjust type to your desired font and size and add your care instructions, finish by flattening image and saving.
This free printable tag from Little Monkey Crochet has two versions The free printable gift tags from How About Orange are great for everything from jewelry to coasters.

I really needed this information to begin labeling my crochet orders. Can't wait to print some of these beautiful labels and free at that. I've been using old resume paper we've had around for ever just to get rid of it. Once that's gone I'll probably buy some thicker printer paper in a natural or brown color.

I am curious do you just print the pages on regular paper? Or is there some special type of paper to print it on? I was kind of wondering the same thing, just use regular paper? I like the embroidered ones that are sewn on. I use a slightly heavier printer paper than usual and just hole punch a corner or enclose it in the gift box. Thank you so much for making the new tags. However, when I tried to print myself a copy of the PDF, they just came out as solid-colored ovals.
These are wonderful! Sure, Jessica! I love the idea of using tags to identify your hand made wonders. This is something of use, I recently sent through US Mail for some labels, it has been months, I hope I receive them soon.
Thank You Connie. Kara, thanks so much for the gift tags. Care instructions are so very important when giving a gift of yarny goodness! I have my own care instruction tags that read: love me…. However, they only pertain to machine wash items.

Personalize Your Crochet – How to Add Labels & Tags to your Crochet Items
Comments Thank you so much this is wonderfulll thank you.This winter I have had several crocheters ask me the following 2 questions: 1 where do you purchase the labels you add to your samples, and 2 how do you attach them? These two questions are what prompted this blog post and tutorial! Adding a custom label to any finished crochet project can really help set it apart from others. Not only are labels great for advertising, but they also add a more professional finish to your crochet!
The following are the listings I purchased for the labels shown in this tutorial:. They have lots of great styles! She highly recommends them. I was checking out their shop and they also have neat acrylic tags! These are the wooden tags and leather labels I ordered from All This Wood. I highly recommend them! This particular style is made to be folded over the edge of your project. Begin by folding your label in half, with your logo on the outside. Use a needle and thread and sew the label to your project.
Make sure that you line up the pre-punched holes in the label. For this label, I sewed between the two holes on the right, first, then gradually made my way across, sewing back and forth between each of the holes. See the photo below of my finished work. First, you need to decide where you want to attach them to your project. I chose to attach my rectangular tag, horizontally on the band of my hat. The first step is to use a needle and thread and attach one end of the tag to your project.
Simply sew several times through the pre-drilled hole. See the photo above, left. You can see in the middle photo above that the band of my hat is slightly stretched, but once the hat is worn, it blends in with the rest of the band as it is stretch around the head. I hope this tutorial has taught you how to add labels to your crochet projects and that you use it soon! Are you intimidated by crocheted cables? Would you love to learn?

Posted on If you're going to start a business selling your handmade items or if you just want to make your crafts look fancyit makes sense to have labels, right? Here's a tutorial on making your own labels at home, not just for clothing, but for accessories, purses, or any kind of craft! Basically, you print your design directly onto the fabric sheet, iron the fabric sheet to set the ink, cut label to size and sew the labels into your clothing or other handmade item.
I'm keepin this simple. Also, your constructive feedback on this tutorial is greatly appreciated! Let me know if you have any questions! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Create your design on the computer. I used MS Word to make a basic colored text design.
Test print the design onto paper first. Once satisfied, print the design onto your fabric sheet on the fabric side.
You may want to start with just 1 or 2 labels until you get the hang of this, so you don't waste any of your fabric paper. Let ink dry for at least 10 minutes. Remove paper backing from sheet. Dry iron on high for minutes on design side. Don't press down too hard with iron or you may distort your image.
Tag And Label Ideas For Your Handmade Products
To make your labels colorfast, rinse under cold water and pat dry using paper towels. Dry iron again on high until dry to set the ink. Hand-sew or machine-sew the label onto your clothing. Ta daaaa! Now your items look totally legit! The edges of the label will fray slightly upon washing. If this bothers you, just sew your labels on all 4 sides when attaching label to your item. That's it! Relabeling: After screen-printing my design onto the item below, I relabeled this skirt by removing the "Alternative Apparel" tag and replacing it with my own.
I know, not the prettiest sewing job in the world, I was getting tired! I left on the manufacturer's label that includes product and size info. How large should you make each label? How many can you make for one page? I'm sorry if I am making this complicated. Reply 1 year ago. Thanks for the tut, very informative, would it work if i used some of the stitch witch iron on tape? This is a great way to customize labels - Great article! Relabeling is the way to go. I got a bit carried away and now have my own laser printing and heat transfer factory in my spare room.
Wouldn't it come out reverse reading? I'm still trying to find a way to print text reverse reading so that the ink gets ironed on right reading.
