A Fancy Tape Measure
Inspirations Magazine #61 had an article about making fancy covers for tape measures that fascinated me. To practice making bullion roses, I decided to make this one. The article suggested that felt be used but I had some silk dupioni backed with tricot interfacing that I had left from another project that I used instead. Where I made a slit for the tape to pull in and out, I did a buttonhole stitch to reinforce the opening. This project was a good "take with" project and was very enjoyable to make. In fact, I think that I'll make another one soon.
