Continuing our January DIY journey to show our spaces a little love, this week we're sharing a few ways to create custom labels for beautiful organization. First up, Allie shows us how she designed fabric labels to catalogue her fabric stash, making an attractive display to inspire new projects!
I love the idea of being super organized, but I never fully execute the actual organizing part. Making cute labels was the perfect excuse to complete an organization project. My ever-growing fabric stash was in need of some serious help, so I decided to conquer it!
- custom printed linen fabric
- heavy weight fusible interface
- velcro squares
After much time spent browsing Pinterest and a few blogs for inspiration, I settled on two basic design ideas, either a more organic whimsical ribbon theme, or a fresh circular shape with crisp lines.
I decided the circles would look better with everything surrounding the bookcase that houses my fabric stash, so I continued to develop that idea. Picking a color palette was easy-- I love to use aqua for everything. I chose the perfect shade from Spoonflower Color Guide:
The design process was fairly simple using Adobe Photoshop, my design program of choice. First, I created an outline of circle and added a dotted border.
Assembly was simple. Iron fabric to fusible interface for added stabilty, cut to desired shape, attach velcro to surface and fabric, and done!
