Covered measuring tapes

Surfing on the french web I saw these measuring tapes covered in different fashions. Apparently you can do the shape of a house, or whatever takes your fancy. I wasn't that brave yet, and just covered mine with quilted fabric.

I copied the shape on paper, to become my pattern. And then cut the fabric with seam allowances, and the wadding without seam allowances. Of course everything is stitched by hand.

I think I will do another one for me soon.

The beige one with a flower will be my Christmas present that we exchange in my quilting group. It is a challenge to find something every year as it has to be very cheap, no more than £3.00.

The pink one is for my daughter.
