Gathered clutch tutorial

Gathered clutch tutorial
A huge thanks to Dana and Disney for doing such a great job of rounding up all sorts of wonderful mother's day projects! Materials needed: 1/4 yard each of three coordinating fabrics (you'll definitely have scraps leftover)8" zipper (you can always purchase a longer zipper and shorten it, just follow the directions on the packagescraps of medium weight fusible interfacingCutting the pieces: For the main exterior, cut two pieces, one 5.5" tall by 9" wide, and one 5.5" tall by 13" wide (this will be the gathered front) Pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing for exterior pieces of clutch: (2) 5.5" tall by 9" wide For the front band, cut one piece 4" tall by 9" wide. Seriously, the most time consuming part for me is always picking out my fabrics and cutting them, the rest goes together pretty easy, so let's go! Take the front band piece and fold it in half the long way (right sides together) and sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance. Grab the 13" wide main exterior piece.

Emmaline Bags & Patterns: Make Your Own Vinyl/Leather Look Handbag Straps - A Tutorial How awesome do these faux leather vinyl handbag straps look? If you want to make some great leather look straps from vinyl that don't show raw edges and messy threads, keep on reading because I can show you how. They are super easy to make and they turn out so good. A few months ago I was making a handbag from a pattern that called for premade leather straps, and after looking around, I found that they were either really cheap looking, really expensive or available only by order and had a huge wait for delivery. Finding the right vinyl is key, because with the wrong stuff you won't have that great leather look and it will be really hard to sew. There are a couple of other supplies you need; you can't just go crazy with the pleather yet. Let's get started: Materials: Teflon Presser Foot Upholsery/heavy duty thread Rotary Cutter/mat/ruler binder clips, paper clips, or other clips leather needles vinyl (PVC, faux leather) - I get mine from OFS! O-Rings or Rectangular Rings 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Lined, zippered pouch / make up bag tutorial This morning I was in a rush to make a simple lined make-up bag and had a quick look on the internet to see if I could easily find any dimensions for such a thing. I could find instructions on how to make a pouch, but none with dimensions and none with covered ends to the zips, which is how I like my zips to be finished. It now seems quite illogical to me that I decided that I simply must write a tutorial for such a thing when I was meant to be 'rushing'...but it seems that most things can wait. So here we have a lined, covered zip ends make up bag / coin purse tutorial (for personal use only, see tutorial end for other terms). Photos are plentiful and instructions (hopefully) basic, in the hope that a beginner will be able to make this easily. This make-up bag will end up measuring: 7.5" x 5". Here are the ingredients you will need: Yay! Take one of the 3" x 1.5" pieces of material. Place your zip so that it butts up to the half way fold that you made. Pull the zip open halfway.

10 DIY tutorials for the most fashionable bracelets of the moment English I think you already know my endless love for DIY tutorials. If you follow me also in the IB Facebook page you see how often I share my favorite tutorials found around the web. I’ve put together 10 DIY projects with step by step instructions to create by yourself the most fashionable bracelets of the moment. Many of them are identical or very similar to some that are for sale in stores and from brands such as Miansai, and shown on fashion magazines or worn by VIPS (Les Mads). And the best part is that we are able to do all this by ourselves, with an amazingly low budget. Ready? The first bracelet, in the image above, comes from a tutorial by Natalia Rosin. Visit the link and look at all the pictures. These yellow wonders are upcycled at AtSecondStreet. And the bow bracelets! The first version in brown leather is from Oh The Lovely Things . In this tutorial by Martha Stewart you will see how. The friendship bracelets, a must. These amazing versions are by Honestly WTF. Another one!

Small Clutch I made another linen, metal zipper clutch. It's a wonder I haven't made 6 more (I guess it's those other obligations I have like my day job). Just like the internet, I am obsessed with these and could have one in every size and color. This one is a small size, for just carrying the essentials out or for using as a wallet, which is how I'm using it now. The construction is exactly the same as the larger version I posted about here, but you'll start with different dimensions. After the jump, I've got plenty more pictures to detail the process. The final dimensions of this clutch will be 5"x8" (larger version here, is 11.5"x11.5"). Cut your exterior and interior fabric to 10"x11". Cut your zipper to 8". I added a small pocket to the inside. Just as instructed in the larger clutch tutorial, make a small piece of binding in your exterior fabric to wrap the raw edges of your zipper in. Once you've stitched your first zipper side down, complete the second. Stitch up the raw sides.

★ HOW TO Make PURSES | WALLETS | POUCHES | CASES ★ There are many fabrics out there which can make for a confusing choice, however if you're a beginner I would definitely recommend cotton or linen first. Nothing too thin or flimsy, unless you are doing to add interfacing to stiffen it, or batting to bulk it up. Quilt weight cotton is most common. - For linings, a thinner material than the outside is used and it is often smooth and slippery such as polyester or nylon. - There are various fastenings and closures you can use for purses, with the most common being zippers, button flaps, velcro and magnetic snaps. - Interfacing (also called interlining or stabilizer) is used to firm up the walls of your purses, making them stiffer without completely losing flexibility. There are different 'weights' of interfacing (lightweight to extra heavyweight), and the heavier the 'weight', the stiffer the resulting fabric will be. Click here, here and here for excellent interfacing information.

#2 Konfirmasjonskort og Tutorial Konfirmasjonskort med kredittkortløsning som pengelomme. Jeg har et metalletui til kredittkort og derfra har jeg hentet idéen til denne pengelommen. Du finner en trinn for trinn forklaring lenger ned på siden. Kortet ferdig pyntet. Søte små papirroser og den søte pyntekanten er stanset ut med Doily Lace fra Martha Stewart. Zoom... Innsiden med personlig hilsen sitat og pengelomme. Fra en annen vinkel for å vise pengelommen bedre. Rund kantene har jeg brukt Grunge Scroll og Ornamental Cirkle fra Grunge Collection. Baksiden med mitt personlige stempel. Trinn for trinn Jeg skal nå vise hvordan man lager kortet med pengelommen. Kutt kartong i str. 12x8 inch (del på 2,54 for å regne om til cm). Brettes slik. Merk av hvor lang du vil ha åpningen hvor pengene skal legges i. Bruk Word Window Punch (man kan selvsagt skjære ut med skalpell også). Bruk en sikelpunch for å lage tommelfinigergrep sånn at man lettere kan få ut pengene. Slik skal den bli. Skjær til en kartong i 12x8 og brett på midten.

Zippered Pouch (with tidy ends) I know there are lots of zippered pouch tutorials out there, and they're great, but I haven't found one that explains how to make the ends of the zipper more finished. Once I figured out how to do this, I thought I'd share. This tutorial is more about the zipper ends than it is about the finished pouch. Though I am going to tell you how big I cut everything, you can easily make these pouches any size you want. Supplies: (2) Exterior pieces, I cut mine 8.5" x 6.5" (2) Lining pieces, mine are 8.5" x 6.25" (1) 2"x4" piece of exterior fabric to cover the zipper ends (2) pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing OR fusible fleece the same size as your exterior pieces. (1) zipper--Mine is 7" The rule of thumb here is to have your exterior pouch length be 1.5" longer than your zipper. Trim the corners of the fusible interfacing to reduce bulk and fuse to the exterior of your pouch. Trim the ends of the zipper to where the little "stoppers" on the zipper are. Repeat for the other side. Hi there!

Macaron Coin Purse Just can’t help for not sewing these sweet little macaron coin purses when one of Craft Passion’s Facebook fans showed them to me. Thanks to XYZZhandmade for her inspiring handmade and some tutorial links in Japanese, this, this, this and this. No, I can’t read Japanese but I can guess from the pictures on how to sew it. Here is the English version of tutorial on how to sew this macaron coin purse where I have added more details in the sewing. The space inside the coin purse is quite limited but good enough to place some small jewelries like ear rings, rings; may be to keep some small coins, folded money; a place to keep small piece of note that wrote your shopping list and reminder etc. Or, simply use it as a key chain or hanging ornament. I have tried both nylon and metal zipper, each gave different feel and effect on the macaron coin purse.

tutorial I hope you all had a great Easter. This Easter I made a tutorial at my cabin and I will love to show off how I made it.... (so sorry for some bad pictures, it's taken by my Iphone ) You will need this tools to make this card: *Paper trimmer *Bone folder/score board * Scissors *Cardstock *Pattern paper *A motif or text *Glue and tape *Embellishment Start with the cardstock. Cut the cardstock at 6"x 11" (15,3 cm x 28 cm) and then score at 1" , 2.3/4", 3.3/4", 5.1/2", 7.1/4", 8.1/4 and 10" ( 2, 5 cm, 7 cm, 14 cm, 18,5 cm, 21 and 25,5 cm) Cut the pattern paper at 3/4" x 5.3/4 " (2 pieces) You will see at the pictures that I used four pieces, but you just need two pieces... (2 cm x 14,5 cm ) 1 1/2" x 5.3/4" (4 pieces) (4 cm x 14,5 cm) Distress all the edges and glue all pattern papers to the folded cardstock. On the middle 5.1/2 score line, make a mark at 1" and 5" Cut between 1" and 5" to make a slit for your tag. Now you have to start with you tag- the one who stands up when you opening the card. My card folded flat

Mini Zippered Bag (box bottom) I started working on this little bag because we have quite a bit of travel planned for this summer, and I’ve found that when we travel I use way too many disposable zipper bags for miscellaneous things, like markers, toys, legos, snacks, etc. This little reusable bag will be perfect to fill with those little things and throw in the kids’ backpacks that I made a few weeks ago. (It would also be a great little cosmetic bag.) The finished size of this bag is approximately 9″ X 5 1/2″, not including the handle. You could easily increase the size, though, and turn it into a larger bag. If you increase the size, you could also line it with diaper-makers PUL and use it as a wet bag for soiled cloth diapers or damp swimsuits. For this project you’ll need two pieces of cotton woven fabric cut to 10″ X 6 1/2″ for the outside of the bag and two pieces of a medium weight fabric like cotton twill cut to 10″ X 6 1/2″ for the inside of the bag. Start with preparing your zipper.

Jak Spellbinders I don’t know about you but my dies and not just the spellbinders ones end up rattling around in a draw and I have to rummage through them to find the one I want, I have some of the smaller ones in an album but the larger ones and the border dies left me with a storage problem. I was contacted by a company which asked if there product was something that I’d like to take a look at, so i popped over to check them out and soon realised that they could have the answer to the die storage problem. So I was thrilled when I realised that it worked. I know it looks like a black A4 a piece of black card but it is in fact an A4 sheet magnet, as you can see you can fit loads on it and better still it has enough pull power to keep them in one place, I even stood the sheet up to make sure they wouldn’t fall of, I then give them the shake test and they still held fast, the reverse side of mine is red but they come in a few different colours so they could be colour co-ordinated to the dies.
