Here is part 2 of the Bridal Showers with Fabric Series!
A Recipe Wrap for 4″ x 6″ recipe cards. This could be a gift for the bride or hostess or for a door prize drawing.
- 7″ wide by 11 1/4″ long fabric scrap for lining. I chose a light weight cotton.
– 7″ wide by various lengths fabric scraps, 2 or 3 pieces for exterior, after sewn together equals the lining dimensions. I chose a light weight denim and 2 cotton scraps.
– 1 1/2″ wide by 34″ long fabric scrap for bow tie
The 7″ edges are the top and bottom of the wrap.
First, sew your 2 or 3 fabric scraps together along the 7″ edge. Use 1/4″ seams and place the fabric right sides matching. Press seams to 1 side. Trim if necessary, to 7″ x 11 1/4″.
Place the exterior you just made and the lining, right sides matching. Sew all around with 1/4″ seams. Leave a small opening in 1 side.
Turn right side out and press. Stitch all around the outside edges using a decorative stitch. I used 2 different stitches.
For the fabric tie, serge, use a zigzag stitch or pinking scissors on the raw edges. I used a 3 thread overlock narrow hem serger stitch.
Place the recipe wrap with the exterior side facing right side up. Measure down 4 3/4″ from the 7″ top edge. Center and pin the fabric tie right side facing up. I had about 13″ of fabric on each side of the wrap to tie with.
I used a straight stitch close to the 2 long edges of the fabric strip attaching it to the wrap.
Flip the wrap over to the lining side. Place recipe cards in the middle of the wrap.
Fold the bottom edge up and fold the top edge over this.
Bring the fabric ties around to the front and secure with a bow.
Cute, cute, cute!
And I wanted to let you know that No-Sew Tuesday and Thursday Threads will return next week.
