What to do with your detergent bottles 2

10 comments


Well, I've finally finished what I started. After cutting up the bottle, I used duct tape to cover the sharp edges.


I cut out my pattern and used this cute bug fabric which I had left over from making a nappy bag for my son (when he was a baby). I cut 2 pieces right sides facing each other.




You then sew them up along the top and sides. Turn it inside out and it will make a snug cover for the book/paper holder. :-)

  8. Great idea! You see these all the time with boxes but sometimes you need something a bit sturdier - the detergent bottle would work! Then adding the cloth cover means you can personalize it by what it will hold or where you will place it! Awesome! Appreciate your sharing with us at Creative Craft Challenge!!
