Momma and baby project keepers

Somehow, while on Burdastyle a while ago (I always wind up checking out blogs and such while I am surfing around here), I came across this how-to to make project keepers. I knew I would use it so I book marked it. Sure enough, a few weeks ago, while at the fabric store, right on top of the remnant bin was the perfect remnant. About a metre of vinyl tablecloth fabric. You know, smooth vinyl on one side and fuzzy on the underside.

I made two so far (a little one for cross stitching and a big one for sewing projects). I know I will need more over time, but that’s ok, because I have enough material from the remnant for about 2-3 more, depending how big I make them! I was looking for something to keep my pattern pieces from getting misplaced, especially since I seldom have lots of time to work on projects. I am usually stealing a half hour here or there, bundling it up and stowing it away from little hands! About the buttons… I reinforced the ribbon tie on the back with a small button and the opposite side of the fabric for the fastening button. I wasn’t sure how easily the vinyl might tear.

Material Notes

Vinyl table cloth fabric (about .5 m for the two items), thread, 3 buttons each.

      Yes and less chance of things going missing! My kids tend to see my stuff and think they can use it themselves!
