We’ve got another quickie project for you today — a little something to spice up that plain old serving tray you’ve been holding on to. Use our Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible and Vinyl Fuse to give it some pizzazz… some personality!


lined serving tray

— 2 coordinating fat quarters for top and bottom
— ¼ yard coordinating fabric for binding (or pre-packaged binding)
— 1 yard Pellon® FF79F2 Flex-Foam™ 2-Sided Fusible Interfacing
— 1 pkg  Pellon® 100R Vinyl-Fuse™
— Rotary cutter, sewing machine & related supplies
— Iron & ironing surface

Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application of all interfacing. All seams ¼” unless otherwise indicated. RS = Right Side; WS = Wrong Side.


Step 1 – Measure the interior of the serving tray. Add a ½” to each measurement.

Step 2 – Use measurement to cut one piece each of top and bottom fabrics and Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible and two pieces of Vinyl-Fuse.

Step 3 – Place one fabric rectangle RS down on an ironing surface followed by the Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible. Place remaining fabric rectangle RS up on top. Fuse.



Step 4 – Remove paper backing from one piece of Vinyl-Fuse. Carefully place it on the RS of top fabric. Smooth to remove any bubbles or wrinkles. Fuse, taking extra care not to touch the iron to the Vinyl-Fuse.




Step 5 – Repeat with the remaining piece of Vinyl-Fuse on opposite side.


Step 6 – Bind insert.



Step 7 – Place inside serving tray.


Happy Sewing!
