Inkling: vintage fabric labels

Following my Vintage Favorites post, I was inspired to create something using some of my vintage fabrics. I saw this Vintage Fabric Deco Tapes post on Pugly Pixel and wanted to create some of my own. Pugly Pixel created the tapes to be used as graphics in design programs. Since I don’t know how to do that, I created labels.

I first scanned my fabrics and then cropped each fabric photo so that it would fit into a label template in Word. I plopped each image into the template.

To customize the label, you can add a text box in Word and add type over your fabric image. Then, I printed on inkjet mailing labels and voila!  


The labels can be used for just about anything.

Thank you Pugly Pixel for the fabric tape inspiration
