Make a Square or Hexagon Tray Out of Scraps!
These pretty little fabric trays are perfect for storing small items that otherwise might get lost. Buttons, earrings, wonder clips or just about anything else will find homes in them.
The trays are easy to make so you can quickly stitch up several for use around the house. They’ll be fun little gifts, too.
The hexagon tray featured here is 3″ across the base at the widest point and 4 1/2″ across the top at the widest point (from tip to tip). You can make it any size you want by changing the size of the beginning hexagon.

The size was adjusted up and down by @raspberryrainbow to create a lovely stacking set of three, shown below.
The tutorial, from the ladies at a Spoonful of Sugar, is well illustrated and easy to follow.

A second tray from the same designers is square and just as easy to make. It’s pieced from 2 1/2″ squares, although you can also make it from a solid piece of 6 1/2″ square fabric.

The finished tray is 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ at its base, and is 1 1/4″ high. Adjust the size by starting with a larger or smaller pieced or solid square.
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!
