How to make a Oval fabric tray
Today I made two fabric trays to put keys in. It took only half an hour for one(I sewed them only with my hands).
I write here how to make it. It's really easy.
To make it, you need,
(1)three cotton fabrics. One is for the inside, one is for the outside and the last one is for the key applique.
(2)thin interlining to make applique, very small piece
The pattern I used is this.
The oval pattern is maximum 6 inches wide, 4.5 inches tall(without seams). And the key is max. 2 inches tall, 1 inch wide.
At first, put the key pattern on the interlining, and cut it. It doesn't need any seams. This is to prevent the fabric for applique fraying.
Then iron the interlining on the fabric for the key, and cut out the fabric.
Then cut the inside, the outside fabrics and batting with the oval pattern.
Put the inside fabric on the fabric, and place the key on the place you want. and sew it with the blind stitch.
Put the outside fabric on the inside fabric to put their upper side in the inside. Then sew them leaving the space to turn it inside out.
Trim the edge line.
Turn it inside out, and close the space.
Tuck the one side and sew the edges together. I used thick Sashiko embroidery thread.
Thank you for reading. I put them on my ETSY shop. Arigato (* v *)!!!!!
