How to make labels

The first craft blog I ever read was Dona Chita, by a Brazilian woman who makes wonderful softies. She calls her softies 'Kokoro' (heart, in Japanese). She makes small little labels for them and I thought it was such a great idea. I decided to make labels for my softies.
Here is what you need:
T-shirt transfer paper (about 9 dollars for 6 sheets at Wall Mart), ribbon, iron and a computer with printer.
Using a graph software, design your label and print on paper to see how it looks and adjust the size, so it matches the size of the ribbon. Once it is the way you want, print on the transfer paper (my printer has a T-shirt transfer mode, that means it prints backwards).



Cut the strips and iron it on the ribbon.


And sew on you softies
