10" square challenge - Fabric tray!

Okay so I am sick and tired of things falling off my bedside table. Everything seems to be round! Well this was a problem just calling out to be included in our 10" challenge!

Enter the solution du jour - a very quick  fabric tray....


You will need a couple of 10" squares, about 9" square of fusible wadding and some coordinating thread. I have added a faux leather label too and you can find the link for that right here.

Begin by ironing your wadding to the wrong side of the main piece of fabric (the piece destined to become the inner of the tray).


Now with the right sides together, sew the inner fabric to the outer. Leave a gap and turn out through the gap. Iron carefully.


Here is a view from the back


Now top stitch around the very edge


Find the centre and mark a square. Sew around the square


By the way, the smaller the inner square, the deeper the sides - very small and you will have a fabric bowl rather than a tray.

Make your label with an appropriately themed stamp.


Pin the 'ears' on the corners and anchor with a small amount of your chosen thread.



That's it! You are all done. Make them in a few sizes and consider them as gifts. Think manly colours for the boys in your life - they might like them for coins and keys. Here they are again...




Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy making these!

Love and hugs
