How do you fare?
Do you bother to label them at all?
How about totes and pouches?
It was back in July of last year that I received my order of 100 quilt labels from the ikaprint store. It was in this post that I shared how much I loved my new labels and showed off how they looked on a newly finished GenX-Aztec quilt, for which I also shared a free tutorial on making that quilt. This past week I used my 33rd label from that 100 label order when I finished my Zany ZebraZ quilt.
These labels are made by Fatih Demirtas of IKA Products.
Fatih is based in Paris, France.
She make the most handsome and stylish bags and totes.
And blogs about them here on her site.
I don't make the labels.
I provide a storefront for ordering the labels from my site.
But my contact information is provided in case you have any concerns.
So you will still be dealing with someone you know if you do have any questions!
For each order of labels from the My Own Quilt Labels store, I currently earn $1.88
And all those little $1.88's have been adding up! So I am paying it forward! And am offering this little giveaway from My Own Quilt Labels to celebrate those sales.

I don't, but id like to
I'd love to finally have some labels for my creations!
I use labels infrequently because I usually forget to put them on, unfortunately. I have some from Etsy that are printed on fabric. What I don't like about them is they are stitched to the quilt instead of tucked inside the binding like the Ikaprint labels.
I took a course on how to label quilts, but sadly never actually do because it takes time. Once I'm done a project I'm excited to move on to the next idea. This type of label looks simple and might work well for me.
I make my own labels using t-shirt tranfers and ribbon, I've mostly put them on bags and such but don't yet know how they hold up in the wash. I've also recently purchased some from Modern yardage, but those are pretty big so i'll probably only put them on quilts for family and friends.
I tend to make a nice label for quilts that go to shows, but the others are usually signed in an unobtrusive place directly on the quilt.
I've only labels the one I made for my Mom. Put some fabric through the printer.
I use labels that I make myself. I would love to have some of these to use.
I put labels on the various things I make (most of the time). I am currently using labels I had printed on twill tape. I have been wanting to try something with a more professional look. Love how yours turned out.
Hi Lorna and thank you for a great give away! I use labels for my Works but I have been thinking to make NEW different and would love to try these. x Teje
I have been using custom made labels from Jennifer's Jewels, but would love to try these.
I had never thought to label the things that I make.What a great idea.
Cool labels! How much fun and so practical. thanks for chance.
Sometimes I remember to put on a label. Having lost a quilt on display at the quilt shop that didn't have a label I'll probably be better!
I try to label things and have tried a couple of different methods. These labels look like they are easy and very unobtrusive. Thanks for the opportunity!
I create labels with a design corresponding to the quilt and wording to highlight the event the quilt was created for, such as graduation along with my name and the date. I don't have labels for other sewing. Thanks for a chance in this giveaway.
I use a stamp for labels but these little ones look very professional
I haven't been labeling my quilts but am doing so now as we are completing one for each of our grandchildren. Would love to create my own. Thanks for the giveaway!
I have looked at those labels but I'm not sure what size to order. I usually put handwritten labels on my quilts but would like something more professional.
I've never used labels unless I hand make one and sew it on, but that's been mostly for 'specials' quilts. ktsquiltdreams atgmail dotcom
I've never labeled anything because I'm lazy. Having sweet little labels would change everything.
I always label and I put plenty of information on my quilts. I am currently using label yardage that I handwrite on with an indelible fabric marker. Sometimes I quilt the information in the background. Whenever possible I piece the label into the backing so it is almost impossible to remove.
I make labels using Pigma pens on muslin or a spare block from the quilt front for my quilts. I haven't labeled any smaller creations so far... Your labels would make a very nice difference for me. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
Would love to win some labels. Normally print them out on some really expensive fabric paper.
I make rather basic labels using tape and a stamp! Would love to have some printed.
I follow you via email (different address).
One time I typed my info on muslin for a label. Mostly I just write on the back with a Pigma Micron pen, usually in a corner. -- soparkaveataoldotcom
I want to start labeling my work!... I love how clean looking and professional your labels are!
I enjoy following you by email!... Thank you for all the ideas, encouragement, and inspiration!!
I use labels that are similar to yours. I have used about half of them. Sometimes I make fabric labels myself when I know the quilt will be washed many times. I then use a fabric pen for writing, or I use the special stitches of the alphabet on my sewing machine!
I make handwritten corner labels but I'd love 'real' ones.
I would love to have some quilt labels. Thanks for the giveaway.
I've been using preprinted labels that say "PS I Love you" would love to win some custom labels!
I don't label anything and I really should. I make bags mostly, but I like making baby quilts and throws as well.I guess I need labels!
I do label, or sign, all my projects. I either use a label I make myself, or a preprinted one from the QS. I've been wanting to order some of these labels for quite some time, but just haven't pulled the trigger. What a wonderful prize!
I usually don't label smaller projects. I have only finished one quilt so far and that one I labeled by writing in permanent ink on a piece on white fabric.
I sometimes add a label, but I would like to be more consistent.
I keep putting off ordering these so maybe now is the time. I sometimes just write on my quilts or sometimes I do make a label but sometimes not!
I label a few projects. I attach a fabric label by hand. These labels look so nice.
I've made my own labels, but I don't use them very often.
I make my own with iron on fabric... I just print out a sheet and it has about 30 labels on it. Thanks for the great giveaway!
I label all my quilts now. I would love to win the labels.
I don't use labels as often as I should. But I do have a few pre-printed ones, like the ones you show and I also do the traditional way of writing on a square and sewing it in. Would love some of these! Thanks for the giveaway.
Sadly I don't, maybe this would finally get me started on a good habit!
I make home made labels to match the quilt. These are pretty cool.
I make home made labels to match the quilt. These are pretty cool.
I ordered some iron on labels to finish my quilts with because before that I would never label. I would love to win and order the ones like you use that I could sew in binding
I have some iron on ones but I am not thrilled with them. I love the ones you have!
I would love to win this! I've been contemplating making my own.
I would love to win this! I've been contemplating making my own.
Love the labels
I would love to use labels. I currently sign the back of my quilts with a permanent micron pen
I think about ordering labels every time I see them on your quilts. They are so cute, and they are the perfect finishing touch.
I have attempted to make my own labels but would love to have these , thanks for the chance .
What sweet little labels! I've been hit or miss (mostly miss) with labels.
I usually just sign the back using a permanent marker. It works, but after spending countless hours on my quilts they definitely deserve something more 'professional' looking. I would love to win a pack of these labels, thanks for the giveaway!
I just ordered some last week! Can't wait to get them
I have sometimes "signed" my quilts doing free motion. this would look much better!
I currently label about half my quilts. Finding it difficult to nicely - discreetly - label rag quilts. These labels might be just the ticket! firstname.lastname@example.org
My labeling is haphazard. I use a sharpie OR embroider a label or forget to label it,
I alwasy label my quilts and vary the technique. These would be fantastic and great to use, thanks!
I use a bias strip and a permanent marker. These would be sew much nicer.
It depends but I do label the ones I give away with info on who I gave it to, date , name of quilt.
I almost never do and I know I should!
I am a label nazi, lol...believe so strongly in labelling quilts, wrote an article for my former guild's newsletter on the importance of and tips for doing it. I have bought fabric with pre-printed labels on, and also made my own by piecing a small block with leftover fabric from the front of the quilt and incorporating it into the backing. These intrigue me, and I did visit her site once and put it on my "gotta do" list! So I'd love to win!
As a matter of fact I have been getting my labels from ikaprint for years! I found them through Etsy! Even being in France, they ship super fast. Plus they keep your info on hand, so reordering is easy too!
I used to be terrible about adding labels, but then I ordered some printed ones and have been using them every since. I've never seen the ones from ikaprint, but I'm heading that way to check them out...super cute labels!
I always use a label--usually a pre-printed design that I add my information using a permanent marker.
I have been wanting to make my own labels for so long! This is awesome!!
I really, really like these labels! I do have a stash of labels that I had made, but I'm not crazy about them so I don't use them very much. If I add a different label, I cut a small piece of muslin with my pinking shears, write on it with fabric pen, then attach it with Heat & Bond. Shnazzy, huh?
i currently do not but I would to try these!
Sometimes I label, sometimes I just write with a fine point sharpie. When I label, I make one, write on it and sew it on. I haven't labeled pillows or pouches...but I should, shouldn't I?!
I have some small blocks left over from a guild signature exchange that I use for labels.. If I want a special sentiment put on the label, I have a friend with an embroidery machine make one for me. I love your labels and have been looking at ordering some of them, too.
I always sign and date my work, if they are small object just with a fabric marker; if they are bigger project I embroider a label with more information (like title, recipient, etc.) Those label looks great for small projects! thanks for the chance!!
I usually add a triangle corner when adding the binding( if I remember), then write on that. I also have some labels I printed off myself. Thanks for the chance to get some professional labels! I really like yours!
I've not labeled a quilt yet. I know I should! So I'd love to have some to get started!
I got some labels that I'm not happy with and think these are so nice. Thanks for the chance to win.
I attended a label your quilt class last weekend. Small labels, like yours, would be perfect for totes, bags and small items. Thanks for the chance.
I'm new to sewing/quilting and have only made a few things. I would like to start labeling my quilts, etc but haven't had the chance to learn how to make labels so this would be a great prize!
I will attach a label with my quilts, but not bags or pillows...so these labels would be great! What size did you get?
I make labels myself and love them, but sometimes I feel it would be better to have them done or - at least - printed to fill in the gaps
When i do label I hand embroder
Robin in Washington State
I don't put labels on my non-quilt items. But I do write out a personalized label on my minis & reg size quilts bc they're always for someone else & I want them to know I made it for them.
On a bit of a whim I bought some sew in labels...I sometimes forget to sew them in (whoops!) but I'm certainly getting better as time goes by. I love the idea of using a label to tell the world (or maybe just your wall or bed) that this is a home made item. Thanks for the chance to win!
I want to label more but I currently do custom ones and they cost a lot so having some bulk ones would be great
I don't put labels, I would like. Sometimes I sew personalized labels for my quilts.
I usually label my quilts with either embroidery or something hand stitched to reflect all of the hard work and love put into the piece. I would love to win some new labels. Thanks so much for sharing.
I embroider my quilt labels.
I don't label anything right now, but I probably should start since I am putting quilts up for sale! lol
Rosemary B here:
I would love to win some labels. I think yours are lovely.
I usually just use a marker and write something on the back corner...
These labels look really classy
thank you for the offer to win!
Sorry if you get multiple posts in you Widget from me - I use ink jet fabric I can run through my printer to label my quilts. I would love to use some fancy custom labels. I enjoy your blog very much - thanks, Beth in AL
I label when I remember! I use a little satin ribbon, similar to the one you have shown but they are way too big. I wish I would have gotten smaller ones!
I'm ashamed to admit that all I do is write my name & year in black Micron pen on the back of the binding!
I do not put labels on because I keep procrastinating on ordering them. Maybe if I win I will get them ordered LOL
I usually make a label...though more often, I don't. I know I should!
I have some labels that I ordered for clothing and bibs that I make for gifts. I make labels to go on the back of quilts by writing on a rectangle of fabric and heat setting it and then sewing it on the quilt by hand.
I label quilts that I make by created one by fabric and sewing it on the back. Never have labelled smaller items, but these labels would work beautifully for bags, small books etc
I label sometimes lol. I have used some scrap fabric and hand wrote my label. I have printed on printable fabric. A little of everything really.
I use a label I bought on Etsy. It is printed on twill, but I have kind of been looking for something more like yours.
I try to embroider labels but they don't usually end up well!
I definitely label quilts I give away, but sometimes forget to label quilts or wall hangings that are for me. I print up the label on paper on my computer because I have a font that I like, and can copy fairly easily, then I trace it onto fabric using my light table.
I am inconsistent with labels on quilts. I have some with my name that I bought years ago, but they're pretty boring. I would love to try some from this shop!
I do use labels on my quilts.
I sometimes do if I'm going to give my quilt away. I just tried printing on fabric with my printer but when I washed the quilt the ink ran a bit on my label :( some professional ones would be great! Thanks!
I'm not consistant. Pre-made labels would help with that!!
Would love to Win!! I make lil' twill strips w/name & date on it & sew to quilt now...these would be way Awesome!! Thanks for the chance! :)
I pretty much label everything! But the labels I make are a bit big for things like bags, so these look like a great idea.
I make labels on muslin, and write out name, dates, etc with micron pens. But I like your labels for the size and adding to zipper bags and other smaller items, too. Awesome giveaway. Thanks!
HI, I use 'iron on' labels some times; permanent pen writing and my Charity Quilts are donated unsigned. This is a neat giveaway>Thank You!
I label my projects with professional labels that I buy on the Internet .
I try too, but have to confess that sometimes I get too busy to add a label. These would be so easy to add that I'm sure I would do better!
I use cotton fabric and a pig a pen and write or have also tried printing on fabric fused to freezer paper.
I label my quilts with a triangle in the corner, sewn into the binding. I either use the alphabet stitch on my machine, or a pigma pen if I'm in a hurry.
I print my labels on white fabric and then sew them into the corner when I sew on the binding. I hate to hand sew and this keeps me from having to so.
I love these labels! And your posts were how I found out about it :) They are just perfect!
i bought some a few years ago but have just about used them all
I labeled quilts that I made for my daughter while in college but no others. I'm too lazy when it gets to that part. Having some premade and easy to sew in - I'd be all over that!
On smaller items, I use a label I get from namemaker.com. On larger quilts, I have some that a friend embroidered for me, and I add the info for the quilt.
I love your labels and even if I don't will will be using your link this year to order my own. I ordered a set of 20 from another vendor last year and was not happy with the quality, or the time it took to get them (almost 2 months).
Thanks for the opportunity!
I always label the quilts I give away, the ones I keep........not so much. I make them on word program and print on the pretreated sheets you can buy. Winning would be an awesome birthday gift for me! LOL
If I make a quilt I will hand make my label with fabric pens. I have sewn labels for my purses/bags. I would love a new label when the labels I have run out. I like your labels much better too.
I label my quilts by hand using an extra-fine Sharpie which I then heat-set with my iron. I used to sew children's clothes so I still have some custom ordered labels which I use for other projects when appropriate. I would love new labels though!!!
I label my quilts with the specific details but haven't labelled my bags. A small label would be great for this.
I have designed labels that I print on fabric and then complete the details by hand (name of quilt, the date, my signature) before stitching in place. I generally use these on quilts. I don't generally label other makes such as totes or cushions and would definitely love new labels I could use on those. Thanks for a great giveaway.
Hi is it possible to order straight from the Paris end, as I'm in Europe? Thanks so much!!
In the past I've made a fabric label and used permanent ink to sign it.
I make my own label for most quilts. Usually just permanent ink on fabric.
I rarely label my quilts even though I know I should. Thanks for the chance to win some!
I have used micron pen to label just a couple of quilts. Really interested in other labeling methods. Thank you for the giveaway.
Hi there Lorna,
I make a hand-printed label, using Pigma pens, then do a little border around it in the leftover fabrics from the front! Then I sew it on by hand…BEFORE quilting, so that the label cannot be removed and someone else could claim to be the maker. It also helps if the quilt gets stolen.
I'd love to have some custom ones to put on items made for sale!
At present I just have some generic hand stitched with love labels x
I try to make labels on most of the things I do. I generally use my micropens and DIY.
I follow on the blog and Instagram. I would love to be labelling my quilt and other sewing with something other than a permanent marker because my printing is terribly ugly.
I don't use labels but I definitely need to!
I am very lazy about labeling my creations. Maybe if I had the pretty labels, I would be better about it.
I usually make my own label using either muslin or a white on white. I print out the information (name of the quilt, who it was made for, my name and location the quilt was made, and the date). I trace it using an acid-free, permanent pen and then stitch it onto the back of the quilt. I like your labels though, very simple and effective.
Haven't labeled anything yet!
I use muslin for label- quick scribble with a Pigma marker and all done. I only did one special one with art and color. I am lazy about labels.
I use a piece of fabric and write on it wit a pigma marker to make a label. I haven't always used labels but plan to continue to use them.
I do label, I've done a bit of everything. Right now I use muslin in a corner and a pigma pen for writing.
I normally over the years have made my labels on the computer and printed out on my own treated fabric - then I saw some printed from an etsy shop and ordered 15 of those and I like them but I wouldn't mind winning so I can try out some more - thanks for the chance.
I was piecing in a fabric label into my backings, but I have stopped doing that an I am really considering labels like yours. Winning some would definitely help me out! :)
Recently bought some labels, but haven't finished a quilt yet to label.
Recently bought some labels, but haven't finished a quilt yet to label.
i do add labels
I use my printer to make quilt labels for quilt shows using vintage graphics and description. I would love to have some simpler labels for personal and gifty projects.
I'm afraid I'm not so good at labeling. I would love to have some of these beautiful labels, and am sure I would be better at labeling my projects. Thanks for the great giveaway!
I so desperately want labels!! The only thing holding me back is deciding what I want them to say!
I'm pretty lame at labeling my quilts. If I give them away I'm good but if I keep them for myself I'm terrible. I've been admiring your labels.
I always make a label for my quilts. I like to embroider my information on muslin and border it with fabric from the front.
I make my own labels for quilts I make only. I'd love to have some labels like yours to add to other items I make like bags, wallets, zip pouches, etc. Thank you for the chance to win.
I make labels for my quilts. I don't label anything else though.
I am really bad about labeling, but when I must, I have used printable fabric. This would be so much easier.
I have not used any labels as yet and would love to win these!
I follow you on bloglovin :) I have tried stitching on the binding, which was unreadable, printing labels on printable fabric and signing them, which fades, using a fabric pen, which with my handwriting is just atrocious. I'm in need of some simple, elegant labels, pronto! lol!
How timely a contest - I was just looking up ways to make my own labels.
Love your labels. Would love some like them! Email is email@example.com
I currently make my labels using the embroidery hoop I have for my Bernina. I like them but they are time consuming!
I usually embroider something simple...hardly ever my name or info - these labels would be awesome! On my MIL's quilt (that went to her in a nursing home), I embroidered HER name and MY phone number....all inside a heart frame...that got as many comments as did the quilt! I also made that little patch easily removable, so when she passed away, all I had to do was rip out a few stitches, resew the binding down & regift it. Win-win!
I have never labled a quilt before yesterday :) but figured I'd better start. I just wrote on the back with a fabric pen. firstname.lastname@example.org
On regular sewing items and small items like hotpads and mug rugs, I ordered labels from Clotilde/Annie's that they custom printed with my name. For my quilts, I usually hand-embroider a piece of fabric with all the pertinent quilt info and my name, then sew wrong sides to fusible interfacing, fuse to the quilt and hand-stitch to secure. I don't trust the "permanent" fabric markers, so I like to embroider, but it's slower, and I don't have a machine with alphabet nor embroidery capabilities.
I occasionally use labels but I'm not that consistent. I need to be better!
I use labels on everything I make. It's a history documentation.
I make my own labels. I embroider my initials and the year the quilt was made. Thanks for the giveaway!
I do not put labels on my quilts. This would be a wonderful chance to win some & start labeling. Your zebra quilt is so cute.
great giveaway-- thanks for the chance! i occasionally make labels and have some pre-printed ones that I bought on Etsy.
I make labels for all of my quilts. But would love to have labels like this for the smaller items I make.
love mine, but can always use another colour!!
i've never used labels on anything i've sewn, not even sizes; would love the chance to create some of my own
Oh I would love to win some labels. I could really use them!!!!!! email@example.com
I don't label my quilts but I would like to. Thanks!
Please click on the delaineelliott above for my email link.
These would work great on the bags that I make. I really should be doing this.
I often forbget to label my quilts, for clothing I have own labels. Even on the Weddingring Quilts for my sons I forgot to put one on it, and I would love to try these silk ones.
I love that people are getting more into labels for their work. It instills pride.
I follow you via Bloglovin'
I haven't made any label yet. I'm still not sure what to put on it. The Czech version or the English? I simply haven't found my label yet :) Maybe this will push me over the edge, lol.
I label each and every quilt. Sometimes I just mark it on the back with a Sharpie or fabric pen, sometimes I affix a separate label using a leftover block, sometimes I write it on the triangle corners I use for hanging up quilts. I put my name, the finish date, and my city and state. Sometimes I add extra information too.
I usually just write on a piece of white fabric with an archival pen, but it's not very fancy looking!
Thank you for the chance to win some labels printed for me. I either write on the quilt itself, or I write on white fabric and attach it. Just recently I found some generic "hugs and kisses" sew on labels and have used 5 of them.
I always label my quilts with a piece of white fabric and a pigma pen.
Good, affordable labels are hard to find. Thanks for the info and links!
To my shame, I have to admit that I very rarely label quilts. I know that needs to change.
I have never labeled a quilt, but I would love to start. These look great.
No I don't, I probably should but I never have.
I don't label anything I keep for myself, like the minis on my sewing room wall, anything quilted that I give away has some label on it, using the alphabet stitches on my sewing machine. Thanks for the chance to win. jacklynnsteven at netzero dot com
I haven't made labels yet but would love to!
I don't label my quilts! I know, I know! I keep meaning to do it but somehow once the binding is finished I am d-o-n-e done. I think having labels like these would make all the difference. Thanks for the chance to win!
For quilts, I use a fabric pen to write on the backing, if it's a dark colour I piece a pale section into it. For cushions I write on the inside.
jen dot barnard at btinternet dot com
I label my quilts using the inkjet printer method for the text part.
I fold a 5 inch square of white fabric diagonally and sew it into the corner when attaching my binding. When I give away the quilt, I write on it with a Pigma pen. Thanks for the chance!
I do have some pretty labels that I ordered through etsy though I wish now I had gotten the fold over kind! Mine are only one sided and makes placement odd.
Many years ago, I purchased a panel of pre-printed labels, but can't find them again. I was using homemade labels. Just started using professional ones with my name. I follow through Bloglovin!
I make my own labels that I sew on, but I've been eyeing these for months now. What's been holding me back is what exactly to put on them!
I have made some handmade labels in the past...
I love to make labels for my quilts but seldom do for the other crafts. I really should do this.
Thanks for explaining your connection to this label maker... I always kind of wondered. I have some that I had made by an Etsy shop, but I am very tempted by these after seeing them on so many of your posts. I think they'd be perfect for small projects.
I currently make my own using fabric (usually muslin) and permanent ink.
Over the years I've neglected to put labels on anything I've created (wall hangings, small quilts, pillows, tote bags). This is something I need so I can label EVERYTHING I make/give away! Thanks for the chance.
