DIY (246) – Fabric recycling: fabric covers for containers

Hi everyone!!!!

Today we’re talking about fabric recycling!

In a few minutes you can prepare these fabric lids for your containers. I prefer the use of cotton, especially if the containers are to be used for food.

Comfortable, practical, you can use them thousands of times since you can wash them.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 246

FABRIC RECYCLING: FABRIC COVERS FOR CONTAINERS

material:

fabric – needle and thread – elastic (1 cm) – pencil or fabric marking pen

This is a very easy project to do.

First take the container for which you want to create your lid.

Place it on the wrong side of the fabric and draw with a pencil the shape of the container (with a margin of at least 10 cm).

Fold the edge (about 1 cm and 1/2) and sew it, leaving a small piece open at the end so you can insert your elastic.

To know how much elastic you will need, I recommend you to place the fabric on top of your container before sewing the edge.

Depending on the edge, choose the size of the elastic (which should be slightly shorter than the container circumference, in order to close tightly your container.

Once inserted the elastic, sew the two ends and close the seam of the edge.

Your fabric lid is ready!!!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

DIY (237) – Special Sizzix: Decorative Rose with Lace Edges

Hi evryone!!!!

Here we are with another special Sizzix die cutting machine.

Today we will see how to make a beautiful rose with a lace border.

You don’t have the Sizzix die-cutting machine? Then you just need to make your own roses, leaves and branches using the template provided below.

You can use them to decorate your gifts, but also to decorate a dining table for an important occasion.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 237

SPECIAL SIZZIX: DECORATIVE ROSE WITH LACE EDGES

material:

COLOURED cardstock – scissors – VINYL GLUE – shape (under, in case you do not have the die cutting machine) – Sizzix – cutter

If you use the rose die with lace edge (I found it on Joom)

If you don’t have the cutting machine, print and transfer the flowers, leaves and branches on colored cardstock.

Now cut your roses, from the smallest to the largest.

With the cutter, cut the lace decoration (very carefully).

Starting from the long piece, roll it up to create the inner bud. Then proceed with that of the flower starting from the smaller and then with the larger one for the leaves and conclude with the one with the lace pattern. From time to time apply a little glue so as to hold the flower together.

With your fingers or with a rounded object (like a ballpoint pen), turn the petals a bit outwards.

Your rose with lace edges is ready!!!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.
