Pretty Old...

Are you like me?
 like to make my sewing space lovely to look at, if I can.
And there was something about the plain, plastic retractable tape measure that I had, that screamed 'Please cover me up!'.

So I did - Didn't it turn out just lovely?

You might have one that looks really similar. 

Want to make yours pretty, too?
I have the how to on my site here!
You can see what the original one looked like there.

Using empty spools, put together a Sewing Circle for a little one to play with,
or keep it on a shelf in your sewing space.

It's All in the Details...
