DIY Fabric Labels

Fabric labels-5-2

I am pretty sure that more often than not, when I upload a sewing project, I get asked more questions about my personalized labels than I do about the project.  I have a lot of fabric labels.  A friend gifted me some really fun satin labels for my birthday, last year.  I love them so much.  However, there are time when I need a different color, shape or size.

Time like those, are when I turn to my Cricut Easy Press, Online Labels Heat Transfer Paper and Thermoweb Heat N Bond Fusible Interfacing.  It is so easy to whip up a ton of labels in a variety of sizes and colors in no time flat.

I keep a page or two ready to go and saved the file on my computer, so when I need more, I just print another page.

I have this bowl full of different shapes and sizes and it makes me happy.  I really believe they take your handmade gifts and make them even more special.

Are you ready to make your very own personalized labels?  Here’s the video tutorial:

Create a Pattern & Card Wallet with the Cricut Maker & HeatnBond

I am having so much fun with my Cricut Maker!  Everyday, it seems, I dream of things to make and patterns to create.

Card Wallet-4

Last night, I got home from work and immediately started working on designing a pattern for these cuties that the Cricut Maker could cut out for me.  It was super easy, and the fact that the Cricut Maker not only cut out my fabric and interfacing, but also drew my seam allowances, made making these super easy – even for a beginner sewist, like me!

Card Wallet-10

These are the perfect size for business cards or credit cards.  I love using small wallets like this for a quick run to the grocery or after school sport events.

Card Wallet-15

I added a keyring so that you could easily clip your car keys or even a lobster clasp could be added to clip it to a backpack or purse.

I used Heat N Bond Fusible Extra Firm interfacing to create the perfect firmness to these little gems.

The fun fabrics are from a Pioneer Woman Placemat (top left $3.47 from Walmart), Fabric Editions (top right and lower left – $0.97 from Walmart) and some fabric from my scraps bin from Riley Blake (lower right).

Wanna make one?  Guess what?  I’ve got a tutorial for you!

I cannot even tell you how excited I was to create this piece!  It’s full of everything I love (glitter, felt flowers and all of my favorite colors)!

I used the Cricut Maker & Heat N Bond to cut most of the flowers.  I just love how crisp and clean cut they are!

Flowers in different shapes, sizes and textures.  Swoon!  They make me happy!

Toucan Felt Craft Kit

I just got back from Creativation in Phoenix!  Let me tell you, there were so many exciting products, but I was super giddy when we came upon the Fabric Editions booth!  They had the CUTEST products.   We gladly accepted their giveaway of a feltie kit.  It was this super cute Toucan. Toucan

They are so easy to assemble.  I created this one in about 10 minutes from start to finish.  It is recommended for ages 8+.  It would be a fun craft to do with your children or for a kids birthday party, or just to make a really cute year ’round ornament tree!  Want to see more from Fabric Editions?  Check out my video:
