In honor of Mardi Gras (in the Quarter, Fat Tuesday...) we were asked to make something out of a "Fat Quarter". This is a quilting term for fabric that is 18 x 22.
We were allowed to use other things, and embellishments, but the measurements could not exceed the Fat Quarter.
I got stuck in a 'quilting' space, and needed to snap out of it. Because, as we know, it is not realistic for me to do a quilt in a week. And, you cannot make a quilt out of just one piece of fabric.
So I thought about fabric in general. And struck upon the idea of using mesh to make a caddy to hold the bath toys.
I got 22 inches of mesh. (which, is sold by the bolt in a section called "utility fabrics". It is there next to ticking, and the fabric with the little tiny rubber dots that is on the bottom of baby footie pajamas.)
And I got some orange ric rac. While the bag is smallish, the ric rac is HUGE. So they create a funny, animated pair.
This could not be easier to make.
Take your mesh, sew the sides and the bottom. Fold a tiny bit down at the top, and sew the ric-rac around.
The piece hangs in the tub on some suction cups with hooks on them.
Here is in action.
Excellent. Washable. Quick drying.
And, pretty cute.
