First up, I have been excited about playing with my Prayer Flag Jelly Roll from Moda Fabrics. I have tried a few different combinations, but my favorite came in using this super easy tube quilting technique. To do this, all I needed was the following:
First, make sure that your can is clean. Next, I took a pair of pliers and just squeezed around the lip of the can to make sure there are no sharp edges left.
Then comes the fun part…open up that jelly roll! I know its so hard to unwrap such a pretty package…but, you can do it! Choose six or seven of your favorites and line them up in an order that you LOVE! Then just start slathering on the mod podge…I started at the top of my can and folded the fabric over the edge to make a nice finished look.Take the strip of fabric and cut it where it overlaps itself. Take your time and try to line up your seam. Be sure to seal it with lots more mod podge.
Then you will want to continue coating your can with mod podge and lining up your strips until you reach the bottom of your can. I lined my final strip up with the bottom edge of the can and then added a final coating of mod podge to the entire thing.
This will make a nice sealed finish. If you want a smooth feel or a shiny look, just spray the can with a craft varnish. It will dry clear and looks beautiful!
And there you have it! a lovely canister! Use these for storing spoons, scraps, buttons, toys, pencils, they would make gorgeous planters for the front porch, or a lovely herb garden…like I said before…Endless Possibilities! So very GREEN!
Isn’t it just the cutest little thing…oh, and do you see the little kleenex holder in the picture…That little honey of a project is coming right up! So, check back soon, your next tutorial is on its way! and believe me, with one honey bun…you can make a BUNCH of projects!!! Love it!
I just LOVE the pre-cut fabric. It is so nice to have a slice of each piece of fabric from the entire line. I also LOVE the cute way they are packaged up. Moda wraps them so sweetly with their twill tape…adorable. I now have a growing pile of twill tape at my house! So, in an effort to go green and reuse everything I have been thinking about what to do with this marvelous little bonus gift that we get every time we buy a layer cake or jelly roll. Well, here’s an easy little project for you. A lanyard to hold your scissors.
I never wore scissors around my neck until I started quilting and now, I don’t know what I would do without them there! I used to lose my scissors all the time! Not so much anymore…So, here’s what you do… Continue reading “A Quickie!”
