Handmade Holiday: Can Cover
First, you need an empty can. I used a famous maker's chicken noodle soup can, washed and label removed, of course! I measured my can and it was 3-7/8" high and 8-1/4" around. I added a 1/2 inch to each of those measurements for my foundation piece. (Note: in hindsight, I would add an inch to the height measurement - it'll be easier later!)
Cut out a foundation piece ... I used some some Bella Solid Snow here.
Designer Houndstooth in Gray and then added some strips from other projects. Lay the next strip right side down overlapping the first strip. Stitch, folder over, press and repeat.
Then put your can in its new "outfit" and admire your work! :-)
Back tomorrow with another project! See you then! :-)
