Labeling Solid Fabrics

Since solid fabrics are dyed and not printed, they obviously don't have a selvage with identifying information. That may or may not matter to you. But if you do like to know what solid you are using as you pull them from your stash for a project, how do you label solid fabrics when you purchase and store them? Here are some ideas:

1. Julie/Jaybird Quilts writes on the selvage usingfabric safe pigma pen.

2. 
Using peel and 
stick address labels is Rachel/Snippets of Sweetness' method of choice.

3. Leave it to Amy/Diary of a Quilter to think of using a 
label maker.


4. Lori/a bee in my bonnet creates 
hand-written fabric labels and safety-pins them on.

5. Rather than actually labeling the fabric, Louise/I'm Feelin' Crafty makes labeled fabric swatches kept on a metal ring.
