A Tag For My Bag...Printing On Fabric

Wanted to share a simple little project that might spark your imagination.
 Tomorrow I'm heading off to Atlanta to attend the Haven conference, so this week has been pretty busy getting ready for the festivities. 
Can't wait to meet so many creative and talented bloggers.

Which brings me to  a TAG for my BAG so people know who I am

Printing on fabric is pretty easy, as long as you follow certain steps. I printed on some dropcloth fabric and made this Paris Pillow for my daughter a couple of years ago. You can see it HERE.

Back to making the bag tag...
I took a scrap of fabric
spray glued it to a piece of cardstock

Printed up the design I wanted on regular printer paper, then laid it on the fabric to make sure it would fit.
(I used an ink jet printer)

Printed it  up...(sorry, no pic)

Took the fabric off the cardstock, trimmed the cardstock and the fabric down, then  glued it back on to the printed fabric.I also frayed the edges of the fabric.

Here's the back of the soon to be tag...
 A 1/4" black grossgrain ribbon was hot glued to the back of the cardstock..

and hung on the button on the bag.

Super easy!

Now, back to packing.

Hope you have a great day.



  1. Positively adorable! Can't wait to see it in person tomorrow!

  2. That is super cute!!! Have a great time! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. Just beautiful Pam. Have fun at Haven.

  4. This article contains some great pictures. I really loved what you did with that wooden bench. The blue painted top really adds so much creativity to it. I also think it was a good idea to add the primer coating because it gives it a nice shine. My wife and I are having a Spiral Staircase built in our home and we want to have it made out of wood. I think this gives us the option of using different colors but we would have to use the primmer coat as well. It needs to have a smooth surface to walk on.
