If you're like me, taking all of the bits between the sewing machine to the pressing table and back to the machine, often results in the block bits getting mixed up.
There is a great tutorial on Lori Holts blog on how to make little design boards with foam board and hot glue.
Only thing is that I don't have easy access to foam board and I don't have a hot glue gun. I know - can't believe it either! Might be one to add to my Christmas list.
So I improvised. Aldi have a sale on artist stretched canvases in all different sizes. I bought a 2-pack and have made my version of a design board.
I've used left over pieces of batting and folded them around the board. As the canvas is stretched and attached to a wooden frame, I've attached the batting with my trusty staple gun.
Staple all the way around the frame, ensuring the batting is taught.
About 3 minutes work for a lovely new and very useful addition to my sewing room.
Do you use a mini design board?
