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).

CALCULADORA DE SAPONIFICACIÓN - ELABORACION DE JABONES AYUDA (Puedes comentar o leer comentarios aquí) La calculadora es un instrumento útil a la hora de hacer jabón. No solo nos indica la cantidad de sosa que tenemos que usar para determinada combinación de grasas si no que puede predecir el resultado de la mezcla. Primero los conceptos: El índice de saponificación SAP nos indica la cantidad, en gramos, de KOH (Hidróxido potásico) para saponificar un gramo de esta grasa. En resumen: 1,4025 g KOH equivale a 1 g NaOH. El índice de yodo es la medida de insaturación de una grasa. El valor INS determina la compatibilidad de esta grasa con el jabón. Si una grasa tiene uno de estos valores muy por debajo o por encima de lo deseado habría que combinarla con otra que tenga valores opuestos para promediar. Quiero diferenciar estas dos partes: La primera es un cálculo matemático simple, regla de tres. Debajo, seleccionamos el nivel de sobre-engrasado del jabón. Al lado, seleccionamos el nivel de concentración de la lejía. En resumen: volver arriba

Quillow Tutorial | a cuppa and a catch up Quillow |kwi – lo| noun1: a quilt that folds into a pillow2: a pillow that unfolds into a quilt. So, it seems quite a few of you were keen to get the ‘how to’ on the Quillow I made recently :) This is the first quillow that I have made and I took process shots along the way so I could share the ‘how to’ of making a quillow if it worked out when I’d finished, which it did! Hurrah! I am certain there are other, better ways, but I’m happy to share how I made mine & would love to hear if you have an alternative way as I am sure I will make another. After I had made it I had a thought that I guess it makes more sense to have the hidden pocket part (the part the quillow folds into) on the back of the quilt but I chose to have the pocket for the pillow on the front side as I was backing with chenille and was worried it might have been a bit bulky with an extra layer of chenille to fold in. Quillow Tutorial So first, here’s the basics… All seams ¼” unless otherwise stated. Step 1. Step 2. Step 3.

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.

Watch Me Daddy: Felt Flower Scarf Tutorial Thank you for all of the sweet love on my Felt Flower Scarf! Really, my goodness, I didn't expect so many people to be interested in it. I'm happy to share this tutorial for you on how to make one of your own! Materials needed: 1/2 yard of 72" Felt or Felted Wool (this measurement is to be safe... but you'll end up with some extra here for sure.) Scissors Needle and Coordinating Thread *optional - Fast Grab Tacky Glue or Hot Glue *optional - Small hook and eye Let's get started shall we? 1. Start by cutting your long scarf piece. Now, cut a scallop around the edge of your long scarf piece. Next, circle cutting mania. Each flower will have 6 circles. DO NOT spend the time cutting out perfect circles. Now scallop all of the circles. 2. Stack your 5 largest circles. Take your knotted needle and thread and come up through the stack of circles just off-center. Now go back down through the stack about 1/2 inch away, on the other side of center. Now make an X. This is how your flower will look so far.
