How to make branding labels/tags

 This article is brought to you by Lizzsews.


For my other shop, Howes It Sewing, I was looking into how to create branding labels. I did not know how to create tags and I was surprised to see that there were no tutorials on how to make the type of labels I was interested in. 


So, I will guide you through how to make branding labels to add to your handmade products to add a more professional look.

To learn how to make these, with the look that I was going for, took quite a bit of trial and error. But, I’m happy to say that in the end, I was able to make some awesome-looking, and professional, tags! I have made these tags numerous times now and I add them to anything that I make that can have a sew-in tag.


And now that I have learned how to make these, I’m going to share what I learned with all of you!


What I used:



How to make:

   1. Prepare your 'logo' design into an SVG.


Remember to make it simple, the cut is going to be very small, you're most likely going to be making a lot of these, and you don't want to drown yourself by weeding them for hours.

   2. Place your iron-on vinyl onto the standardgrip mat.


I use the brayer to help adhere my vinyl to the mat. Remember to place the iron-on vinyl shiny side down.

   3. Size your branding logo down to less than 1/2" tall, mirror it and cut it out with your Cricut.

   4. Weed the design


   5. Cut the ribbon to 1" wide, fold it over onto itself, hamburger style, so that the width is now 1/2".


   6. Pre-heat the ribbon at medium heat for about 5 seconds. Place the iron-on vinyl, liner side up, onto the folded ribbon with the two raw edges on the left.


   7. Iron the vinyl onto the ribbon at medium temperature for about 30 seconds. Peel the liner up, flip the ribbon over and press for about 15 seconds.


   8. Place the branding label into a gap or unsewn seam, so that when the sewing project is complete, the raw edges are hidden and your branding label is shown.


Tip: Keep the woven edges as the sides, fold over the ribbon and sew your seam with the raw edges hidden.

Guide To The Three Main Machine Embroidery Stabilizers

 This article is brought to you by  Lizzsews . Here is everything that you need to know about the three main machine embroidery stabilizers. Stabilizers are important in machine embroidery; they prevent puckering and support the fabric.  The stabilizer goes underneath the fabric you are embroidering. Although there are some stabilizers that will go on top of certain types of fabric, this is called a topper.  A bottom stabilizer is always needed, you can never embroider without stabilizer, but a stabilizer topper is only needed for certain blanks. The three main types of stabilizers are cutaway, tearaway, and wash away.  The first is a cutaway stabilizer. A cutaway stabilizer can be used on clothes and many different types of fabric. The cutaway stabilizer is permanent and is mainly designed for knit fabric. It is non-woven and helps get rid of pulled or sagging stitches.  The cutaway stabilizer has a lot of stretch resistance and stays intact after wearing, using, and launderin
