Things To Do With Scrap Fabric, Part Two

If you're a fan of Mod Podge, this is a post for you!  That is the key ingredient for these two scrap fabric projects.
Materials used here: Altoid tin, sequins, Mod Podge, seed beads, paint brush, needle, thread, X-acto knife, embroidery hoop.... and fabric, of course!
Step 1: Put the fabric in the embroidery hoop.
Step 2: Use your thread and needle to attach the sequins and beads to the fabric in any design or order that you wish.  Make sure to make a good knot when you're finished.
Step 3: Use a paint brush to apply Mod Podge to the lid of your tin.
Step 4: Place the fabric on the lid and make sure to press down around the edges.  Don't worry just yet about the excess fabric that may be hanging over the lid.
Step 5: Mod Podge over the fabric for a little extra security and a shiny finish.
Step 6: Let dry.
Step 7:  Use the X-Acto knife to clean up around the edges, and cut off all the extra fabric!
The next thing I did was collect all the bobby pins I had laying on my floor/table/counter/dresser and put them in my new container! Pretty cute, huh?

As for this project, you will need: a jar (back to my jar obsession), a plate, paint brush, fabric, scissors, and Mod Podge.
Step 1:  Cut out 15-30 circles/squares/rhomboids/whatever you wish, out of your fabric.
Step 2:  Pour some Mod Podge on a plate and lay one of your shapes in the Mod Podge and then press onto the jar.  Make sure to smooth out any bubbles or floating corners.  You may get messy.
Step 3: Continue covering the jar until you get the look you want.  (PS: I chose not the cover the bottom... no one sees it anyway).
Step 4: Do an overcoat of Mod Podge for extra shine and security.  Let dry.
Enjoy :)
