I found this youtube tutorial a long time ago, and am still making my fabric labels this way!  All that you need is an inkjet printer, freezer paper (something they don't sell here in Canada, but I've had one roll last me a long time!), scissors, the fabric you want to print on, and your iron.  Personal tip:  I cut my labels out of woven fabric with pinking shears...obviously they don't fray as much, and they look quite "hippie"...to me, anyway.  :)  Here's the link:

Etsy.com has shops that make label and they are reasonable in price.

I do not have miracle fabric sheets but a roll of fabric that goes in the ink jet.  I just have not tried them yet.  But I plan to make my own labels after practice.  Why should I pay when I can take the time and teach myself and save money.

I will have to try the Miracle Fabric Sheets. I heard the new fabric sheets are very good.  I have always made my own computer generated labels using Bubble Jet and printed them using a label set up.  Creating them in a graphics program gives you as many fonts, graphics and designs as you can imagine at a reasonable cost.  The way to go.

Make your own fabric labels-Using Miracle Fabric Sheets

Step 1:

Create an image or photograph using your computer, digital camera or scanner.

Tips: Print your design on paper first before print on the fabric. Check and align it well before you print it.

Step 2:

Print fabric sheets in your printer tray and print design on the fabric side. (Can get these at one of the many office supply stores)

Step 3:

Remove paper backing from fabric sheet.

Step 4:

Iron on the unprinted side of fabric to heat set the image.

Tips: Do not use steam!

Step 5:

Rinse fabric sheet in a pan of cold water for 1 minute.

Step 6:

Lay flat on a towel and allow to air dry or blow dry.

Tada! Here you go ... you have created your own fabric labels with a superb result!
