Dotty Pouches TUTORIAL. My sweet friend Chrissy of Sew Lux Fabric sent me these new Mochi Dots.

Dotty Pouches TUTORIAL

They’re made by Moda and are a linen/cotton blend. They’re delicious! She told me to make something awesome, so here’s a (hopefully awesome) tutorial for you! Supplies: You’ll need three colors for the outside of each pouch and two each for the lining. These are fat quarters and I mixed and matched. You will also need 1 yard of fusible fleece and 1 yard of 1/4″ cording. Note: If you’re working from scraps, refer to the cutting directions in the next step for precise measurements.

Cutting: Cut one 2 x 12″ piece of each of the accent fabrics for each pouch. Cut two 6 x 9″ pieces of Color A for each pouch. And two 8 1/2 x 9″ pieces of Color B for each pouch. Cut two 14 x 8 1/2″ pieces for the lining for each pouch. Cut six 14 x 9 1/2″ pieces of fusible fleece and three 12″ pieces of cording. TO MAKE ALL THREE POUCHES, you will have to repeat all the steps for each pouch. 1.

Zippered Dopp Kit

Take this Zippered Dopp Kit. It is just a no-nonsense sturdy space to stash your travel toiletries, but there is something lovely in its utter simplicity. And in heavy-duty cotton canvas with a chunky plastic zipper, not only is my Dopp Kit spare and elegant, it’s strong and resilient as well! The way you sew the Zippered Dopp Kit celebrates this elemental simplicity. I made it with just one piece of fabric that’s folded and sewn together in a way that’s clever but not too tricky.

How to: Drawstring Produce Bags

You are? Well, let’s just fix that right now, shall we? If you have a sewing machine and can sew a straight seam, you can make these. Of course, even if you don’t have a sewing machine, technically you could make these with a needle and thread, but that might be a little more effort than you’re willing to put out. Instead, find a friend with a sewing machine who will make these for you teach you to make these in exchange for a nice cuppa or lunch. Start by cutting two pieces of fabric, about 12″ x 14″ and then take a peek at my instructions for sewing mini bags (there are plenty of photos). With wrong sides facing, sew a straight stitch along three edges using a 1/8″ seam allowance. Turn your bag inside out and hem the opening by folding the fabric over twice (about a half-inch each time) and then sewing around the edge.

Turn the bag right side out and admire it. Now for the drawstring part. ShareShare.
