I sewed this Treats Holder to serve little treats during Chinese New Year. Every kid visited my house during this festive season likes it… I mean the treat!!! I made another bigger one to put some mandarin oranges as well. To my surprise, it can also be a King’s crown if the fold is made deeper.
Today is the 7th days of Chinese New Year!!!! It is everybody’s birthday and we are officially 1 year older in our lunar age. Traditionally, we get together on this day to toss the colorful raw fish salad(yee sang, 鱼生) and make wishes for continued wealth and prosperity. The higher we toss, the better we will get 🙂
I saw this method quite sometimes ago and amazed at how the holder was transformed from, it was a “cross” originally!!!
Treats Holder Sewing Pattern
Cut 8 pieces of 5 x 16.5cm (2″ x 6 1/2″) to make a small treats holder of 5 x 5cm (2″ x 2″).
Bigger Treat holder 14 x 14cm (5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″) needs 8 pieces of 10 x 32cm (4″ x 12 1/2″).
You can use 2 or 4 different colors of fabric for your design.
Arrange the fabrics in a “cross” as shown in the photo, you need 2 sets of this to complete a treats holder. Arrange the second set at the bottom of this set with the wrong side facing each other.
