Great for Quilt Group Projects and for Giving to Crafty Friends!
These darling little tape measures are easy to make and so much fun. Small purchased tape measures are enclosed in charming fabric houses. Decorative buttons attach to the ends of the tapes.
Dig into your scrap basket and choose your favorite colors. Look for little motifs to add life to the house (like a cat in the window!).
You can also change the shape and placement of the doors and windows. It will be so much fun giving your little house its own personality.
Once you get started, you won’t be able to make just one! Make several for your sewing room and extras to give. All of your crafty friends will love receiving one.
A finished tape measure, from the designer at Patchwork Pottery, is 3″ x 3 1/2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
