Fabric labels from Spoonflower

I designed some very simple Janssen Designs labels and ordered swatches from Spoonflower Fabrics.

I ordered labels for tote bags I make for family and friends (and myself!) on organic cotton sateen (one swatch gave me enough labels for 32 tote bags!). I also ordered labels for my ReWreaths on organic cotton interlock knit. Each swatch was $5.

I love the quality of these fabrics. I will definitely be back for more. And I'll be designing labels for my quilts soon too. Thanks Spoonflower.

  1. Oh wow, fantastic idea!! I print my own on my computer using iron on fabric that is really expensive and I sew them on anyway, might have to try Spoonflower next time.

  4. Karen, They are jpg files I uploaded to spoonflower.com and they printed them for me. you can purchase a swatch (like I did) or yardage. A yard of organic fabric is $27 which would give a ton of labels (if they are small like mine).
