Clothing Label

My baby girl started kindergarten this year and putting names on her sweatshirts and jackets is a new thing to me.  She has already left a sweatshirt on the bus and my sister had asked me if I wrote her name in it.  I hate writing names on the tags of clothes because what if I sell it and the next person doesn’t want my kid’s name on their stuff.  My husband, who is under the deep blue sea, said why don’t you make a tag to sew on the tag of her clothes.  Duh why didn’t I think of that.  Yeah I could just take a pen and write her name on a piece of ribbon or fabric and sew it in but what fun is that!!  And custom printed ribbon is so expensive.

  3. Adhere the HTV to your fabric or ribbon using either a heat press or iron, I used an iron
  4. Cut your fabric or ribbon to the size you need
  5. Attach your newly created label to your clothing.  I chose to use stitch witchery since my sewing is not that great.
