Make your own sew in labels...tutorial!

Today is Tutorial Thursday
I shared this tutorial over at Boerman Ramblings awhile back but I thought I would share it here for all of my readers 
(who I'm very thankful for :)). 
I'm going to show you how I make my own sew in labels, yippee! 

Make your own Sew in Labels Tutorial

Iron On Transfer printer paper
Printer / computer
Twill tape

*sorry that I don't have pictures for this, usually my tutorials have a lot of pictures lol. 
It's sweet and simple though don't worry*

First you will need to create your image for your labels on photoshop on your computer.

Then save that image and open it on word. 
~Copy and paste to fill the page 
but make sure there is room in between each image. 

~After that you need to set your image to "mirror image" that way after you iron it on the twill tape it will be facing the right way.
Then print :). 

~Now cut your images out. 
I just did long strips that way it is easier to iron on.

~After you cut them out take your twill tape and lay it out long enough for the strip of images.
Follow directions that were giving with your transfer paper to iron your images on your twill tape. 

~Next cut them all out, make sure you leave room at the ends so you can sew them on.

(I also made Craft Couture ones with a crown)

That is it, it's that simple
