Remember all of those little felt dessert kits I did ages ago? Well after a lot of thought I finally found a use for them 😀
Meet my new strawberry parfait tape measure cover 😀
So what you need:
First take apart all of the felt pieces.
The three main parts are the pink top, cream sides and brown crinkly bottom…
Start with the pink top. It is felt with some stuffing inside to keep the shape.
The pink top needs to be on the side without the button to retract the tape otherwise you’ll never be able to push it through all of the toppings XD
Hot glue around the edges 3/4 of the way around.
Poke some stuffing in…
And glue the rest of the way. Done.
Now the sides, cut strips of the cream tall enough to cover the edges of pink and still fold down underneath.
Wrap it all the way around the edge and glue in place. Make sure that you leave the hole that the measuring tape comes out of clear! Trim around the outsides so there is only a few mm of overhang.
Fold it around the bottom and glue in place.
Now the crinkly bottom part! As it was the crinkly bottom part didn’t quite fit my tape measure so I cut the thread that ran around the edge and redid it so it was loose enough to fit.
You can see below how it should fit without the other pieces in the way.
Put a tiny bit of glue on the button which retracts the tape so it sticks to the felt. This is so you can easily press it after the felt is in place, just be careful not to glue it so it’s permanently pressed!
Glue/stitch on all of the strawberries and yummy parts on top and you’re finished! I decorated with a few diamantes and a bow as well.
Quick, easy and functional too 😀 Now my at home measuring tape is as cute as the bear one I keep in my purse!
Problem is that looking at this now is making me huuuuungry XD
