This is a darling idea from Poppy Lane. I located a online shop for the retractable tape measure at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each, very affordable. Kali offers us a wonderful pictorial tutorial to follow. Enjoy! About Kali: of Poppy Lane I live in a 100 year old cottage on a beautiful island near the bottom of the world. I’m a mama, dreamer, thrifter, designer, sewer & photograph enthusiast. I love cake, enjoy my own company and have a fascination with different accents! I’m passionate about my scrumptious “Itty.Bitty.Pretty.Shop” creations of handcrafted fabric embellishments & miscellany. Your comment is like a lovely gift to me. I love each and every one my little gift to my readers & blogging mates. This is a tutorial for a very quick and simple project, a wee homemade gift, maybe for a teacher, neighbor, friend, or just you. It’s cheap and cheerful. Perfect for using bits and bobs you already have.
