I started the process of creating my own label
1: I choose a blank label template from publisher. My chosen design gave me 30 labels per sheet of paper.There is quite a selection so you can choose what size you would like, depending on your final fabric choice
2: I made sure that my design was centred to fit onto my twill tape allowing enough selvage for turning to sew in raw ends. (although the transfer seals the ends so it may not need to be turned under.

3: I printed a test copy setting my printer at "mirror image". If you don't do this your final transfer print will come out back to front. Once I was satisfied I printed out my design on transfer paper, following the manufactures instructions.

4: I then cut a strip of three images, leaving the rest for another when needed
7: I am so excited, my own label cut and ready to be added to my own finished garment
I am really pleased with the result, this is so simple to complete and great satisfaction in knowing that I have made this. I am planning on making my own care labels and I will post here once I have completed this process.
