See I have been busy...

I have been making cartonnettes patterns - cutting them
out of heavy cardboard & gluing fabric on them. The largest curvy
cartonnette is 9 inches high & the rectangle cardboard behind it is considerably
larger as you can see. The rectangle is easier & quicker to cover - on this
one I sewed together the fabric, turned it to the right side & just
whip stitched it closed. The
fabric comes from some new napkins that I owned & never used. There
are 4 cartonnettes in each set & it takes 4 napkins for each set.
On the blue checked set I even left the fringe on & closed it
shut with big stitches. Maybe I will add a pretty applique to the
blue checked ones since they are my favorites.
Have fun making your cartonnettes.
