Sew-in fabric tag tutorial

I wanted to share another tutorial with you guys today, since I was working on more of these sew-in fabric tags with the Fairweather Friends logo on it. Branding has always been something enjoyable for me, and I'm happy with the way this logo turned out so I keep looking out for creative ways to use it. They take a while to finish, but luckily, I can make a whole lot in one sitting so I don't have to make them very often. Before I run the plushies through my sewing machine, I stick one of these little fabric tags where one of the seams will be so anyone who ends up with one of my plushies will know who made it.


I found a tutorial that explains how to make these and used it to make my own tags. I had some experience with printing on inkjet iron-on transfer paper before, but I didn't realize that you could also print on sheets of specially-made fabric! Also, once you set up the Word document that you can print them off from and test it out to make sure the size and proportions are perfect, most of the hard work is over. Check out the tutorial to learn how to make your own! 

Today, I've been working hard on stocking another familiar plushie. It's late and I'm pretty much ready to turn in for the night, so I hope you don't mind the short post. Keep an eye on my Etsy shop for this next round of adorable stuffed animals to appear in the next day or so!
