DIY fabric labels

I need labels for my items. I looked around some time ago, but I was not really happy with any of the services (printed or woven labels) – especially given the fact that the min orders are huge (what if I don’t like how they look, feel?). I saw some diy labels on different blogs, and I liked the idea. And I like to look of handmade labels. So, I did some googling and found these:

5 ways to make your own fabric labels from Crafting a Green World – links to 5 interesting tutorials.
Also from Crafting a Green WorldFinding Custom Eco-friendly Labels and Hangtags – if you need to buy your labels, at least be green about it.

I already bought twill tape and I have some iron-on transfer paper, so I will try that first. Then I was planning on getting a custom stamp from rubberstamps.net and some fabric ink and try stamping. I will let you know how it goes.

On a similar note, and following an earlier post about fabric stickers (how would you make a sheet of sticky fabric?), here is a tutorial on how to make (sticky) fabric labels (that you would use on e.g. kitchen glass containers); from Making Chicken Salad.
