I know I said I’d do a holster tute, but my six-year old has been patiently waiting for a quiver for his Native American costume, and well, the one-year old really doesn’t care about his holster, so…
Native American-Inspired Quiver!
Here is how I made it…
-two contrasting suede-like fabrics
1. Cut the plastic canvas down to approximately 16″ by 12″.
2. Cut one of fleece the same size as plastic canvas.
3. Cut one of each of contrasting fabrics approximately 1″ larger on all sides than plastic canvas.
4. Cut strip of fringe the length of what will be the outside fabric. Zig-zag stitch (I chose zig-zag for aesthetics) down center of fabric’s length.
5. Straight stitch fleece to plastic canvas. It may stretch and bunch in places, not a big deal. This won’t be seen, it’s just to add dimension.
6. With right sides together, sew contrasting fabrics together on three sides. Leave fourth side completely open and unsewn. Turn.
7. Slide plastic canvas/fleece into the contrasting fabric “bag” you just made, pillowcase-style. Fold open edges under and top stitch to finish the fourth edge.
