What can we make from the fabric above?
A Canada Day Candy Dish!
I'm showing it filled with gadgets but you could use it as a Candy Dish filled with "red" candies as well!
You will need:
2 complimentary 9" squares of fabric
1-9' square of thermore or fusible fleece
Thread to match
How to make it:
1) Place both pieces of fabric right sides together on top of the fleece
2) Pin if needed and sew all the way around leaving a 3" gap for turning.
3) Sew 1/4" around perimeter
4) Turn to the right side
5) Top stitch 1/8" from edge around the perimeter to & gap seam.
6) Lay fabric right side up in front of you, measure 2 3/4" from each corner of your fabric and place a chalk pencil mark at 2 3/4" away from each corner.
7) Fold the square wrong sides together matching the two marked spots on each side. Draw a line on the right side of the fabric from the matched & marked points to the corner of the sewn square in the centre. Sew on this line using a back tack stitch at the beginning and the end of this seam. This will create the side wall flaps that stick out.
8) Repeat step 7- 3 times until your "Canada Day Candy Dish" looks like the picture below:
Fill 'er up! Happy Tuesday🍁
