SewingRoom SewAlong….Tape Measure Cover / Case

Please forgive me for posting this late….but the flu knocked me off my feet and I have had the pleasure of spending the last 48hrs in bed….alone …sick !! …what fun! My head stopped pounding for a few minutes so I figured I better write this post before it starts again….

This is the last "official" Sewing Room SewAlong Project !! (I'll be posting some projects in December but it is optional if you wish to make them….I wanted to keep December free for everyone to do their Christmas shopping/sewing!)

Here comes this months project….Tape Measure case !

A Spoonful of Sugar has a few examples …my favorite is the one with the flowers…

The tape measure doesn’t have to be covered…it can also be a little pouch, case, container…

Cheryl has this cute example of a tape measure case…no directions…inspiration only ! super cute

  6. Hi Liz,

    Love the sweet cat and owl - thanks for showing us these and will go and take a look.

  7. Das ist eine schöne Auswahl an Anleitungen, das mit der Eule gefällt mir besonders gut.

  8. Liebe Liz,
    da hast du wieder ein paar schöne Anleitungen rausgesucht, aber wenn ich ganz ehrlich bin, so eine Verpackung für mein Maßband liegt wahrscheinlich irgendwo leer rum *grins*. Vielleicht werkel ich ja doch noch eins als Weihnachtsgeschenk, jedenfalls Danke für Inspiration und vielleicht auch Motivation ;-))
    ganz liebe Grüße
