There are so many reasons to learn to make your own fabric labels! They help keep track of sizes, make dressing easier, identify your custom creations, and add a lovely professional touch to the items you sew. There are many types of labels to choose from, depending on the type of item, your purpose in labeling, and how you want to attach the label. I have rounded up 8 different ways to make your own fabric labels to get you started.
