Baby Gift Label Tutorial

Posted on January 21, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I made the cutest little baby gifts the other weekend from these labels and thought I would post a quick tutorial.

So here's what you need:

  • 1 panel of labels (I used the Odds and Ends panel
  • Heat and Bond (enough to fit your label)
  • Item to applique your labels on (onsies, cloth diapers and a bibs are all great for these)
  • Coordinating thread

Here are the adorable labels I used from the Odds and Ends line.

Start by cutting out which label you want to use.

Cut around the label so just the inner border is remaining.


Measure the label, cut the same size of Heat and Bond.  Apply the Heat and Bond to the wrong side of the label by following the manufacturers directions.

Once the Heat and Bond is ironed on, trim all the excess Heat and Bond away so the label is clean around the edges.

Remove the Heat and Bond paper off the back, place on the item you want to appliqué.  Press with the iron following Heat and Bond manufacturers directions.

Stitch around the edge of the label, I used a coordinating brown thread and a tight zig zag stitch.

Pull the tales to the back and knot.

And just like that you're done, baby gift ready to go!  Hope you enjoy!
