Item details

Here's a crochet pattern so you can make tape measure covers for little 2 inch retractable measuring tapes. The pattern includes all three of the pictured covers—grapes, watermelon and citrus.

You supply the tape measures and make as many TMCs (tape measure covers) as you please. They make great stocking stuffers and little gifts for crafty friends but be sure to keep one for yourself to tuck into your purse—very handy! I've used mine 3-4 times this past week when shopping.

Sources for retractable tapes:
— Tapes are available in the notions/fabric department at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each. The last picture is of the retractable tapes before being covered. The white button is what you push to retract the tape back inside.
— You can order a quantity online from JoAnn's, The amount is twenty at a time for $29 but if you use a coupon you can get them at 40-50% off.
— Some dollar stores carry these little tape measures but many do not.

When you checkout, you will instantly be able to download your printable pattern. Just click for the pdf.

Warning: making these little TMCs is so much fun you might find them addictive!
