What to do with a (vintage floral) fat quarter…

3 May

So, I’ve been quite naughty and started late-night fabric hunting on the internet. Picked up this lovely vintage fat quarter (£1.79 which isn’t that much of a bargain but look at it!!) which is 100% cotton 130gsm.

The result of late-night eBaying!

Anyway so I have been trying to work out what to do with it. While I’d love to do something without a sewing machine, by the time I get round to using this I hope to have a new one anyway so can do something super neat and speedy :)

Current possibilities are:

  • coasters: 8 from one fat quarter (!) from ‘Made-by-Fabi’ here,or one with a cute quote from ‘Saltwater-Kids’ here
  • a sunglasses case, like this one from ‘Create Craft Love’
  • line a purse that I will *definitely* make in the future
  • maybe a camera case would be possible?

What do you do with your fat quarters? The simpler the better but I can keep any more complicated ideas for future!

    i just love material and cannot walk out of a fabric shop without buying some. Fat quarters are fab, i recently had a stash of some and made a lovely patchwork bag , i was ever so pleased with it as i’m no expert sewer but it turned out well. i guess with two fat quarters you could make a kindle cover ( that is if you have one) .mine has an ugly leather case to protect it but i’m going to make something bright for over the top out of two fat quartersxx love that vintage fabric by the way , i’ve never bought off ebay i think if i started i’d be tempted to spend a fortune, its so easy to click click and spendxx

      I don’t have a kindle (yet!) But that sounds like a really pretty idea! I guess it would work with a notebook instead which could be nice. Are the two fat quarters for a different Inside/outside? :-)

      Yes online fabric shopping is very dangerous :-/
