$ 185  

: Turn that pile of fabric scraps into an artistic and functional piece of art. This fabric vessel caddy is perfect for holding your paint brushes, colored pencils and art tools. They also make for the perfect handmade gift. In this easy and fun workshop, I take you through step-by-step in creating a handmade, one-of-a-kind, fabric piece where you will incorporate different types of fabrics and stitching (or embroidery). Then pull it together to create a beautiful fabric vessel caddy. (This technique can easily be adapted to different size molds).
