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.

Attach your metal key ring, you're good to go!

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!

Zippy Wallet Tutorial The Zippy Wallet Tutorial is here! Bear with me, this is my first tutorial. Although I've probably followed and read a couple hundred tutorials, you never know. {Key chain tabs not included in instructions} Here's what you need: 1 piece of exterior fabric 5" x 9.5" (interfaced) 1 piece of lining fabric 5"x 11.5" (this is also the binding & lining for the exterior pocket) 2 pieces of fabric (same as lining) 3" x 1.75" for tab (interfaced) Must have: sewing machine coordinating thread 7" zipper (you could use a 6" zipper or larger, but this is what I had) interfacing snap, button, velcro (we'll discuss this later) It would be nice to have: clear ruler self healing mat rotary cutter Let's go! Cut your exterior fabric into 3 pieces: 5" x 3.5", 5" x 3.5", 5" x 2.5" (for the exterior pocket) Cut your lining fabric into 4 pieces: 5" x 3.5", 5" x 3.5", 5" x 2.5" (lines the exterior pocket), 5" x 2" (make into binding for exterior pocket) Now onto the fun part!

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.

Handmade Therapy: Tea Wallet Tutorial Alright! As promised here’s my little tea wallet tutorial. And don’t worry, even a beginner can sew this. I use my sewing machine but you only use a straight stitch so you could easily sew these by hand as well. You will need: Scissors 2 5×7 inch pieces of outer fabric (I recommend quilting cotton or home decor weight fabric) 2 5×7 inch pieces of fabric for inside pockets (quilting weight cotton is best) 1 5×7 inch piece of light weight fusible interfacing (not needed if you are using home decor weight fabric for outer fabric) coordinating thread 2-3 inch piece of thin elastic cord (or just cut a thin elastic hair tie in half!) sewing machine or needle and thread pins iron and iron board Step 1: Cut 2 5×7 inch pieces of your outer fabric. Step 2: Cut out 2 5×7 pieces of your inner pocket fabric and 1 5×7 inch piece of interfacing. Step 3: Fuse your interfacing to one piece of your outer fabric. Step 4: Grab your two inner fabric pieces and fold them each in half and press. and inside: Enjoy!

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!

Sewing Tutorial | Triangle Coin Purse With Zipper After being inspired by the wrapped glutinous rice dumpling (粽子, Zòngzi) of a Chinese traditional festival, DuanWu Festival (端午節), I sewed some triangle coin purses recently. In fact, today is the actual date of DuanWu Festival which falls on every 5th day of 5th month of the Lunar calendar. If you are new to this rice dumpling, scroll down to see the one my mom made… yummy delicious….. may be I should start a food blog for my mom with all her delicious cookings & recipes that I am lucky to eat & grew-up with. [To read more about DuanWu Festival, click here. To read more about Zongzi, click here. For the detail of how to sew a triangle coin purse with zipper closure, read more after this jump: This 3-D triangle purse is actually in the form of tetrahedron shape with 3 triangles on the sides and 1 triangle on the base, other name of tetrahedron is “triangular pyramid”. Materials: 1. Cut fabrics & batting according to the dimension above. Pin batting on the wrong side of the fabrics.

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.

Beccy's Place At my card club recently we did a shoe box swap where we brought along card kits we had put together for the other members at our table. The idea was to pass the kits around so that everyone made a card from each person at the table, resulting in a nice little stash by the end of the day. I decided to make this double gatefold card using punches, butterflies and patterned papers. Requirements:A4 cardstock base (8 1/4" x 11 3/4")Patterned paper 8" x 3 3/4"Two strips of green patterned paper 8" x 2"Small offcut of white cardstockVine punch (I used a Martha Stewart punch)Lattice border punch (I used a Martha Stewart border punch)Small flower punch (I used an EK success punch)Self adhesive pearls (I used Kaisercraft pearls)Paper butterflies (I used Collections Elements Creative Butterflies)Sentiment stamp (I used Stamping Up Sincere Salutations)Score board and score toolFoam matInk padDouble sided tapeSmall foam dotsWet glue (I used Glossy Accents)Glue pen (I used Zig Squeeze and Roll) 1.
