I recently came across a tutorial for making a little fabric tray using 5” charm squares. Since I have loads of these little squares (mostly from freebie packs offered by Pelenna Patchworks when I do my on-line fabric shopping) . . . I decided to give it a go.
The tutorial I followed is by Lisa and Sarah of A Spoonful of Sugar.
Instructions were wonderfully clear . . . and it got rather addictive.
One, two, three . . . eight!
Yes, I made eight little fabric trays in all sorts of different coloured prints.
a lovely way to use all these pretty prints, with more subtle colours for the bottoms
I really enjoyed myself. It didn’t make me feel any cooler, to be sewing rather than cross stitching, and I suffered acute squeaky needle syndrome when stitching the corners together by hand but oh, what joy to have made all these little trays ^^
