How to Make a Project Keeper
Yay, I was super excited to see that my new project is up on CRAFT this morning!
I designed these Project Keepers as a way to neatly store all my projects-in-progress. They're a super simple construction - a little like an envelope pillow, so small items can't fall out. And they come with a hangtag so I can label each project.
Best of all, you can make them from oilcloth, or you can find a vinyl tablecloth (backed with flannel or not) at your local thrift store.
Here's a shot of the opening, and of one of my longest-standing WIPs. Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs was kind enough to send me this pattern for her Gracie Handbag, along with one of her Bag-E-Bottom stabilizers. I really want this bag! I found awesome fabric!
...And (gulp) a year and a half later, I'm still trying to find time to sew it. Ack.
Wait. Forget I said all that. Go look at the Project Keeper tutorial!
And, check out this pretty idea from Modern June, where oilcloth takes a similar shape as gift wrap!
