A little bit of linen and some lovely fabric from Warp and Weft and what did I get? A covered binder and a door prize for the next Fraser Valley Quilt Guild meeting. This is just such a fun way to upcycle a binder! I use binders for patterns and stuff in my sewing room so I am sure a guild member will find a use for it.
Have a look! I added a few rows of quilting in a lovely heavy 28wt Aurifil in a variegated orange. The heavier weight thread looks super on the linen! Covering a binder is easy except for the fitting part. But I have a tip... if at first you don't succeed, try another binder! Binders vary a lot depending on where the rings are located and how thick the actual covers are. This binder was a little bit fancy and as a result, the cover needed to be a bit larger than you would expect for a basic 1" three ring binder.
you are giving me ideas!!
Somehow I completely missed this post! I know I was rushing to get packed and ready to leave for Brussels at the time...glad I spotted it, though! Such a great idea!ReplyDelete
