Fabric Vase Tutorial
Hey, I made another functional thing! I was inspired when Pokey Bolton posted this little tutorial based on Wen Redmond's idea.
Start by layering fabric bits (and paper) on a fusible. I fused to Peltex
Stamp, add foil, add paint.
Free motion stitch
I cut in these shapes to create the sides of a vase. (I didn't leave any for the bottom of the vase. Oh well, no one will look at the bottom!)
Arrange for sides of vase
I zig-zagged all the sides, then zig-zagged the sides together.
Here's how it looks as I assembled. See the bottom I added, in just plan peltex.
I stitched along the top of the vase again, then zig-zagged the final two sides together. (probably should have hand-stitched those final sides, but oh well.)
I hand-stitched the bottom on. ( Take a look at my studio box tutorial too, if you haven't seen it.)
it holds yarn.
makes a fancy trash basket
and lovely flower vase (yes, the flowers are in a glass jar inside the vase.)
