One Yard Wonders I whipped up these two presents for my lovely sister.
I made some modifications to the original designs. The Car Trash Bag needed some pencil pockets and organizational capacities. Oh, it also needed tons of bias tape trim, mostly because I haven't figured out the tension on my serger AND because it looks oh so pretty!
The Fabric Covered Cork Board was really easy, but adds a ton of interest to any desk space. I just took a found frame and cut the cork board to fit. Then I trimmed the fabric, leaving an inch and a half of overage. Then I hot glued it nicely into place and added a solid fabric to the back to cover the edges. Abracadabra... practical and pretty.
Add a few decorative push pins to the cork board and a couple pens and personalized notebook to the trash/organizer and it will be a hit :) I'll definitely be adding some of these to my shop.
