- Empty Tin can
- Fabric Fat Quarter – I bought my fabric from eBay. Herringbone fabric:

First remove the paper wrapping from the tin cans. I soaked my cans in the sink for half an hour to remove the sticky residue.
Next measure and cut your fabric. Use the height of the tin as a guide line

Neaten up the edges with a knife or fold over once dried
And there you have it.
