Fabric covered swingin' vase
I made these fun fabric swingin' vases.
For these, I used my own original fabric, with a thin batting behind and did some free motion stitching.
Then, just because, I colored in some of the stitched shapes with water soluble crayons.
I used glass test tubes from here. These are the 38x200mm size, $3 each.
I measured them, and stitched two sides, rounding the bottom. You can hem them first, by machine, or hem them later, by hand. I sewed buttons on each side, on the top, and strung the monofilment (fishing line) through the buttons, to create a hanger.
I created another set, as gifts, using fabric printed with a Paris subway map (sorry, I don't remember where I got this fabric) and free motioned it.
I hand stitched the top hem of these.
