Welcome to my post for Oh Scrap! linky party. I enjoy playing with scraps and Cynthia has many ideas in store. That's why I like to follow her blog and I'm honored to be featured there.
I started with some tiny strips. When it comes to scraps I say: If you cannot sew them - fuse them!
I use light weight fusible interfacing.
You can also read about my fusing adventures here and there.
This was my first take on strips and I would definitely recommend to place them much closer together. Maybe even overlap a bit. Once I quilted it there were visible gaps which I had to fix later.
I quilted over the gaps with triple stitch to hide them completely. Much better!
I also wanted to try ticker tape kind of block. Both projects have raw edges.
Now a little how to pics. Creating tin cover is pretty easy.
Once I'm happy with quilting on the middle part I mark the size of my tin. See the black line on top and bottom? It is good to cut of batting which is shown in right bottom corner. I use Frixion pen so this line will disappear once I iron it.
Just fold down the overlapping fabric and top stitch the edges on both sides.
Wrap around your tin and make marks on both sides as well. Don't make it too tight.
I draw a line from the marks on both sides. I fold over, pin and sew right on the line. Cut of and turn around.
And that's all. Just slide it on your tin.
I like to put piece of foam inside when used for pens.
This color combo is definitely my fav. Have you noticed? :)
I made some tin covers before. They are great for using scraps, QAYG technique or your selvages.
I'm sure you can use some tins yourself. So have fun making them!
If you have some scrappy project yourself. Please share on Oh Scrap!
