Great Gifts: Easy-to-Sew Fabric Trays

December 15, 2017

Make them special with custom fabrics & design details.

Trying to come up with great gift ideas? Here’s one to consider: check out our giftable fabric trays. These make the list because they offer so many options for personalizing – you can tailor them specifically to those on your gift list. How? Start with favorite fabrics and then add details with Dritz® rivets and eyelets. Finish them off by declaring they’re “handmade” with a Dritz® metal or leather label.

Hint: Jewelry fans on your list? We think this fabric tray would look nice a bedside table or dresser, and keep favorite pieces handy.

Great Gifts: Fabric Trays Get creative! Fold the edges of your tray to highlight fabrics. We added Dritz® matte gold eyelets and a “handmade” label to this tray to complement the metallic details of the fabric.

Great Gifts: Fabric Trays We used Dritz® double-cap rivets to apply the “one of a kind” leather label. (It’s easy to do – see how here.)

We also used the rivets to add stability and structure to the corners of the tray.

Get inspired to use our leather and metal labels – they are perfect for many handmade gifts. (Notice we used them on each of our trays.)
