Twister Fabric Tray

I tested this Twister Fabric Tray, which is a new pattern from Around the Bobbin. In making this tray I got to try out a new heat moldable product from Bosal. It is fusible and an interesting product to work with and  it does take a bit of time and trial and error to get it to mold as you want it to. The good thing is that you can play with it and redo it as much as you like. I really enjoyed making the Twister part of the tray using the Mini Twister template. I have made Twister quilts before and I just love the look of the Twister quilt, plus it's fun to make too. 

The tray is a useful and fun thing to have, if only I was able to get it to mold how I wanted it to. Maybe this stuff molds easier on a small project? I do love how my Twister looks though.


This is the Mini Twister that is quilted to the fusible moldable product before shaping it into the tray.

I molded the 4 corners up into a tray. The Bosal product is very hard and stiff.
As a comparison, this was my first attempt at molding the tray and as you can see it wasn't very good! The corners were too pinched.

This is the back of the tray on my first attempt. I definitely prefer the softer rounded corners of my second attempt.
The good thing is, you can heat and play with this until you are satisfied with the result.

  2. Such a cute project. I like the way your tray turned out. I have the twister tool and a row by row pattern that uses it but I haven't given it a 'whirl' yet. (Sorry, poor attempt at humor)
