I use the same fabric as the backing if it is not too busy of a print. I stabilize and embroider what I want said. With another piece put right sides together stitch to around outside, cut slit in back side turn right side out, press and attach by hand. I have used a picture of my grandson sewing his quilt to make a label following the same steps using the photo transfer fabric. Hope this helps.
That is such a special idea for your GS - will be a great keep sake for him. Thanks for your help
You can also use a cotton twill - twill is what some sites sell as their "badge" fabric. Starch it first as it's stretch is different across the grain, so you want to stabilize it.
Thanks for your help
I agree with sewmom - I always use cotton as it's a natural fibre and breathes. Good luck with it all. Love and blessings Chris
Thank you, do you wash it first?
I always wash cotton first. Good luck with you label.
I think if you used a white cotton and fused interfacing or stabilizer to the back it would be opaque enough. Try a sample piece first.
Thank you, appreciate your advise. I saw the material at JoAnns for $5.00 and $10.00, could I use the less expensive cotton with as good results?
Depends on how thin the cheaper one is. Lay it on top of some dark coloured fabric, or your purse or whatever, and see if it shines through to much. You could always double it.
Thank you for your help
