1 hour bag- tutorial

1 hour bag- tutorial
This bag is so easy ! This is the new bag I made to take back to work this term. It took less than an hour from choosing the fabric to dumping my junk in it. This pattern is on a piece of A4 paper so I'm sure you can work it out from that. You will need: Using the pattern piece and cutting on the fold of your fabrics. 2 pieces in your handbag fabric2 pieces in your lining fabric2 pieces in wadding or batting to give your bag a bit of body.1 magnetic purse snap (optional)2 x 6 1/2 inch squares of fabric for the pocket (optional).2 strips of fabric 3 inches x approx 29 inches for the strap1 strip of wadding about 2 1/2 inches by 292 large Buttons Start with the pocket. Turn right sides out through the gap. . Pin your pocket to the right side of one of your bag linings. I like to do two lines - looks good and adds a bit of strength too. Now put your other lining piece right sides together with the pocketed one and sew around the bag, again leaving a turning gap at the bottom. Related:  Sewing

Tutorial: Gathered Round Basket I had a few requests for instructions on how to make the gathered round basket that I made last week. This is an easy project and the baskets can be made in any size, are fully reversible, and are useful for so many things. Materials: (to make a basket measuring 4 1/2 inches diameter and 1 3/4 inches high) 2 pieces of cotton fabric cut into circles with a 8 inch diameter (I used a small side plate as a template)1 piece of fusible wadding (such as parlan or pellon) cut into a circle with an 8 inch diameterstrip of fabric measuring 2 1/4 inch x 14 inch (for binding) Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Edit 07/ 2012 – Just wanted to clarify in response to a few emails – The circles are 8 inches in diameter (the measurement you get if you rule a line through the centre of the circle) and when they are gathered they measure 12 inches in circumference (i.e all around the outside of the circle).

Clear Toy Storage Bags (with drawstring closure) Why do kids like toys with so many itty bitty little pieces? I guess it increases the fun factor. Tiny brushes. Tiny shoes. Tiny tea pot sets.

No more anxiety, wondering where all the little pieces of your children’s toys will go. Just bag it up and make it fun for them to put all their pieces back into their special bag. See?

How to Sew a Reversible Cowl Scarf Madigan made… finally figured how out to make a cowl scarf! See my cute scarf and big smile? That’s not at all like the sad face I had last winter… where I failed miserably to make a reversible cowl. Today is Day Four of Simple Scarf Week and I couldn’t get through this week without figuring out how to make a reversible scarf! (Did you miss my cowl scarves from sweaters, the t-shirt infinity scarf or my fluffy pleated fleece scarf? I’ve been on the look out for fun plaids or prints that I could use for my reversible scarf reattempt. So when I saw these contrasting checked scarves at the dollar store, I snatched them up and knew they could make a cute reversible scarf! I’m seeing buffalo check prints used more and more these days. Let me show you how I figured it out how to make this cowl… Supplies: 2 strips of fleece (mine were ready-made scarves that I cut down to about 32” in length and they were about 12" wide) Sewing machine Coordinating thread How to sew a reversible cowl scarf:

PAP Saquinho Térmico - Fernanda Reali Saquinhos de algodão com recheio de arroz cru e sementes de linhaça, para serem aquecidos no microondas e usados quentinhos. Úteis para quem tem cólicas, adultos e bebês, ou mesmo para usar em um dia frio. Tudo começou com o post Desafio CRAFT em que havia sachês para fazermos. Quem sabe costurar e quem não sabe, arriscando-se e superando as dificuldades. Atrás, uma abertura tipo fronha de travesseiro, para quando quisermos retirar o saco que contém o recheio e lavar a capinha estampada. Defina o tamanho que seu saco térmico terá. Lave e passe os tecidos antes de iniciar o trabalho. Corte o tecido que será a frente do saco. Junte as partes unindo direito com direito, pois o saquinho é costurado pelo avesso. Corte os cantinhos para não ficar um amontoado de pano. Visualize aqui: a face da frente é a de listras grossas, a face de trás é a de listras finas e bolinhas. Tudo costurado? Aqui, o segundo saquinho com outra estampa. Novamente, passando antes de alfinetar e costurar. Obs.

The frugal heating pad. - Surviving and Thriving | Surviving and Thriving Recently our heater went on the blink. The heating company that DF prefers wasn’t able to give us an appointment for almost two weeks – unless, that is, we wanted to pay extra for an after-hours visit. Nope, we didn’t, even though temperatures dropped into the mid-20s at night and only into the high 40s during the day. Nothing froze. And when I wasn’t? The rice sock, also known as “the frugal heating pad,” made all the difference in the world. Rice, rice baby It’s a pretty simple to make: Pour raw rice onto a sock or a cloth bag, tie it shut and microwave it until it’s very warm. Rice isn’t the only possible medium. Last year, shortly before I moved back to Alaska, a severe windstorm knocked out the power in Anchorage. The fireplace insert blazed then, too – with a clay baking dish atop its ledge. Back in the day people used live coals inside a warming pan to heat their sheets. DF and I keep each other warm, but we did recently treat ourselves to flannel sheets.

Organizador de costura Desde que bati o olho nesse organizador, baixei o PDF com as instruções (em inglês) e deixei aqui, na fila de projetos por fazer. Achei bem prático porque além do pin cushion, tem também essa cestinha pra colocar as sujeirinhas de fio e um lugar pra colocar tesoura, desmanchador etc. Tudo ali, pendurado na berinha da mesa ou no braço do sofá. Na mesa ou no sofá, tudo organizado e limpo… Essa semana resolvi exacutá-lo e, minha filha, quantos detalhes! Domei o bicho e fotografei cada passo, pra não ter dúvida. A lista de material está em POLEGADAS ao invés de centímetros. Vamos lá! Primeiro, cole as entretelas nas peças que precisam: as bordas da cestinha e o prendedor. Cestinha Os dois pedaços grandes, da parte da frente e do forro da cestinha. Passe a costura na marca que você acabou de fazer, nas duas peças. Dê um pique no cantinho da costura, embaixo, nas duas peças, como na foto: Abra as costuras pra fora e prense com o ferro de passar. Passe a costura nessa marca: Agora as bordas. Ufa!
