Make Your Own Label
Liz made a label for the back of her quilt by ironing freezer paper to her fabric and then putting it through the printer. All you need to do is design your label in a word document and when you are happy with it print! N.B you do need to make sure that your printer uses pigment ink to get the best effect.
Here’s one she made earlier.
