Made a label - it's terribly easy

I came across a tutorial that shows you how to make your own clothing labels. Here's a photo of my attempt.

Sorry it's so blurry. It says "Snakes on a Sweater for Carter - 100% Cotton - Machine Wash & Dry"

Things I learned:

  1. Don't wait to let the tag get cool before taking it off. Mine is too glossy. The instructions mention that it wouldn't be so glossy if I took the paper off when it was still hot.
  2. Make sure the shape of the transfer is the same shape of your label. You can see where the transfer makes it onto the ribbon. I cut mine at an angle to follow the graphic. It just doesn't look as neat as I'd like it to look.
  3. I don't know how to hand sew worth a darn.
