This is what I made for my fella for valentine’s day, having a lack of money I couldn’t afford to buy him anything so I had a brain storm and came up with this simple tray which is for him to keep his keys, spare change, phone, etc in.
I made it using quilting squares, bias binding for the edging, some felt between the two square to add stiffness to the bottom of the ‘tray’.
I also embroidered the inside of the tray using the burda valentines stencil as a guide.
I did the embroidery using my straight stitch machine, this was my first attempt at embroidery with the machine I usually do it by hand. It was pretty easy though.
Cotton squares, bias binding, felt, thread
Burda for the stencil for the embroidery
Me for idea and making it
