DIY French Black & White Stripe Plates

7 Materials
10 Hours
Hello and welcome to another easy Summer tutorial using fabric.
I mentioned last week about sharing two other posts on how I made the most of my three yards of French fabric, so here is the second post in this series!

One of the reasons that I love this project so much is because of the simplicity and the potential it has for gift giving. These plates make perfect little take home gifts for any occasion or could be given as hostess gifts too when given as a set. So many options available and of course fabric too.

These nifty clear glass plates can be made in various sizes but for this project I chose dessert plates, because seriously everyone loves dessert!
Just imagine serving your sweet treats on these fun plates and then putting the leftover cookies, pie, brownies or cake on the plate all wrapped up and sending the treats home with your guests.
You know that Paper plates are a drag, they flop, bend, crumble and fall apart, but these plates won't!
1. Place clear plates on fabric measuring amount of fabric needed for each plate.
2. Cut equal squares of fabric for equal number of plates

3. Coat the backside of the clear plate with modge podge
4. Place printed side of fabric on the modge podge coated side of plate
5. Press fabric into place removing all air bubbles
6. Trim fabric to edge of plate
7. Coat fabric with more modge podge
8. Wipe off front of plate with damp cloth.
9. Allow plate to dry upside down overnight.

And there you have it, your own customized glass plate!

    how do you get the fabric to lay flat on a curved surface? I would think it would bunch up. Thanks!!!
