How to Make Fabric Clocks

Dec 27, 2011
Article Image
This quick project lets you suit your décor with a result that’s useful and unique. Clock mechanisms are easy to find and install. You can make clocks out of almost any object that you can drill a hole through. The fabric-face clock cover is removable too, so you can wash or change it when you feel like it. These are just a few examples, but use your imagination. Fat quarters work well for this project, because precut quilt fabric is inexpensive, easy to work with, and available in amazing colors and patterns. There’s no harm in playing with any fabric you choose, however.  Got a minute? Sarah McFarland demonstrates how to create these cute timekeepers in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 4.
