Love the creativity!  Question for you... is the tape measure 'scraps' from fabric tape measures?  If so, where did you get?  I'm looking for these in fabric but all I'm finding is the plastic variety which aren't easy to poke a hole through with my needle.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Thank you! In answer to your question, that is just cotton fabric that I bought from an eBay shop based in Thailand called Lucky Fabrics, have a look, they have more tape measure fabrics in different colours. There is also an UK site called Online Fabrics that also sells the same type. I went with the Thai shop because it was cheaper shipping it to Ireland. Ironic that the country next to me charges more for shipping! Cheesy
 I hope this helps!

There is a lot on etsy too, it might be cheaper shipping if you are in US
