Folding Fabric Trays

Marmadaisy has a tutorial for making folding fabric trays. These would make great gifts for Father’s Day or other occasions.



Since my husband frequently travels for work, I made one for him using some “manly” fabric. Pieces of cardstock in the middle, top/bottom and adjacent middle sides help give it form; the corner sections are fabric only.




I made one for myself using Shimmers of the Sea Shells, Surf color, by Sandra Banava for Robert Kaufman..



These little trays will be quite useful on our upcoming vacation. They fold flat for travel and are assembled by simply snapping the corners together—perfect for holding pocket change, watch, rings, etc.

Good job choosing manly fabric, and a great idea to take with on a trip as it is sometimes hard to keep track of the little items. I've seen these bigger as napkin holders too.

Have a great Wednesday!

So clever. What a great idea for traveling. I always stick my ring/earrings, etc in the zippered side of a suitcase. I like this idea much better!
