How to Make a Fabric Tray

I’m sharing with you today how to make a fabric tray and once you make one…you’ll be hooked!! I have them all over my house…holding all sorts of things. I created these fabric trays to hold my Stampin Blends Markers…when I was filming videos, the sound of them hitting my desk was loud and distracting!! Now, I just place the fabric tray on my desk and it works perfect!! I have another one next to my sewing machine to holds clips. And, next to my nightstand, it holds my Apple Airpods and medicine. I’d love to hear what you do with yours!!

  • The small Fabric Tray measures: 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ x 2″
  • The rectangle Fabric Tray measures: 4-1/2″ x 7″ x 2″

Here’s the fabric tray that I made in the video tutorial. The fabric line is: Adel in Summer by Sandy Gervais.

More fabric trays… like I said, once you make one…you can not stop!!
