If you find that you do sewing on your lap from time to time, why not make a pretty tray to keep everything in its place? I made this project for an event, but we didn’t have time to get to it so it has become our first Free Project on the Stash Books blog.
The tray re-purposes an old picture I found at my local consignment store for $10, and turns it into a sweet quick project. I didn’t replace the glass as I didn’t want the glare, but I may go over it with a clear medium or have a piece of plastic cut to keep the top of the tray smooth.
You can’t see it in the above photo, but the back of the tray has a cutting mat conveniently adhered to it. You could also attach the spools to the bottom of the tray as little feet instead of using them as handles…the possibilities are endless!
