Lately, I’ve been having so much fun making these easy fabric trays! I know everyone on Instagram has seen them, but I’m never sure what I should write in this space. Readers, are you on Instagram? Does it feel redundant to see the same things here? Or, do you prefer to read the blog and wish I’d share more of my creations here? I’d love to know!
Back to the trays though, I saw my friend Cheri make one of these last year, so I had to copy. And now, every time I make one, someone asks what I used to make them stiff. It only seemed right to write a whole blog post about them.
I put one layer of Pellon Fusible Midweight 931TD on the back of each piece – two layers per tray. You could also use Shape-Flex SF101, I just happen to always have the other on hand. Then just sew your rectangles right sides together with a small opening, clip corners and turn. Next, top stitch to finish the edges and sew the opening closed. I like to use a little Finca Perle Cotton for the corners, and just tack them for shape.
- Rectangle – 6″ x 10″ – 1″ corners
- Large Square – 7″ – 3/4″ corners
- Small Square – 5″ – 1/2″ corners
I think these are perfect for a little bit of treasured prints too!
I’m giving some of these very trays away as a giveaway on Instagram, so if you’ve not yet checked it out, make sure to stop by and leave a comment! Enjoy!
I’ve also created this Pinterest friendly image if you want to save this for later:
