I got the coolest sewing calendar for Christmas:
and I couldn't wait to get making something from it. At lunch we made a big industrial sized can of tomato soup ( with lots of sickies in the house we'll go through it) and there was a project for covered cans (see it on the cover?). I bopped over to the Elsie Marley blog and got to work.
So imagine a tomato soup can and snip, sew, glue... I made this:
Here's the backside - my "obvious stitching" was a little rough:
I did make a few adjustments to the pattern, I'm one of those weirdos who paint the back of things so I covered the inside of the can with fabric as well as the outside. To do that, I used a longer piece for the top edge cover and glued it inside the can all the way to the bottom. I can see making a lot of these. Fun, not too tricky, great use of scraps.
The challenge over at Get Sketchy this week is to take something bound for the trash can and make it magnificent. I think this fits :-)
