Quick & Easy Craft : Repurpose Containers with Fabric

I had the craft bug bite me really late so I couldn’t resist. I used to make hair bows but stopped when I started college since I didn’t have time to blog and make bows. I miss it sometimes!

Tonight I was inspired by an empty chocolate milk canister. Its Nestle Quick. All I did was grab an old outgrown dress of my daughters and rough cut to size. I wanted a jagged look, no perfect seams to make it more country looking. I used hot glue and wrapped the sides then the bottom. For the inside I glued a ring and put fabric inside with a 1 inch overage. I glued down all the seams.

To finish I trimmed in some red grosgrain ribbon and glued on applique’s, then it was done. No sewing!

    As a seamstress for 35 years now, this idea really sparks my interest. I just told my grandson yesterday that we need to do a deep organized clean up and storage on his desk here at my house and this idea I love, I have a chest full of fabrics to choose from in designs. Thanks for sharing

    Pretty! I just remembered I’ve seen lots of spare cloths scattered all over the house. Might be time for the family to start using some of that creativity to spice up some things in the house. Have you ever tried selling your crafts?
