Fabric Clutch

Fully lined zippered box pouch - pattern and tutorial - it's a Pretty Modern life I love the look of a zippered box pouch...so incredibly cute. I found many tutorials on the internet, but was disappointed after making pouches following these tutorials to find that they were not fully lined; looks so much nicer when you open your pouch and there are no seams. It took me a long time to figure it out and I thought and thought and thought...then I got it♥ I don't want to keep this knowledge to myself, so here it is. I'd like to thank Jane at Projects by Jane (the only other tutorial like this that I was able to find on the internet - wish I'd found it sooner). ♥♥♥Thanks so much! The finished pouch is 3 high x 4 wide x 7 long (inches) Here's what you need: 1 twelve inch zipper 2 10x7 inch panels for the lining (my lining fabric is the green one) 2 10x7 inch panels for the exterior (my exterior fabric is the brown floral one) 2 4x3 inch pieces of complementary fabric for the pulls at the end of the zipper STEP 1. STEP 2. STEP 3. STEP 4. STEP 5. STEP 6. STEP 7. STEP 8.

Braided Headband Tutorial It's chilly outside here today and I'm loving it! I enjoyed every minute of reaching into the closet and pulling out soft cozy blankets, snuggling up on the couch with my blanket and laptop to check my e-mail this morning... Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of temps below 40 degrees, but a high of 65, I'll take it! Anyway.... on with the tutorial. Here is what we are making today! What you need- Thick hair tie Six 1" strips of fabric Bulldog clip or safety pin Sewing machine (or needle and thread) Fabric tac I ripped my fabric strips so they were a bit frayed on the edges, personal choice. Tack each end of the braid just enough that it doesn't come undone . Then tack both braids together on each end, be careful not to twist the braids. Cut your hair tie so it's one strip of elastic. Sandwich your elastic ends between the ends of your braids on each end, again, careful not to twist the braids. Sew over the elastic so that it's secure. Your done! Enjoy!

MADE: TUTORIAL: the Hobo Sack Whether you’re on the road or hanging at home, every hobo needs a bag for his (or her) treasures. So load it up, hit the road, and sit back on the tracks to enjoy a break. The hobo sack is one of the easiest things to make. So here’s what we’re making: Easy?

Just lay it on your fabric and cut two: Decide what you’d like to use for straps. It sort of curls up in a tube, like this: If you’re going to use knit straps like me, cut (2) straps that are 1 yard (36 inches) long and about 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide. Okay, on to the sack sewing…. Those little corners down there that are cut out is what gives you “room” in the bottom of your bag. Take those two corners that are cut out and fold them up to each other: like this: and sew it down. When you’re done, it should look like this: and Enjoy!

Tutorial: Patchwork Wristlet Thank you to many of you who requesteda tutorial on this pouch. This wristlet,measuring approximately 6 3/4" x 5",has some fun features including three insidepockets for cards and a chap stick and a littleloop outside the pouch that holds a key chain.I have been making tons of these pouches justbecause this project is simple, easy, quick, fun,and quite addictive, so I hope you enjoy this tutorial. We start off with twenty four 2 1/4" squares. We now take the twelve squares that come toone side of the pouch. Fun ;) After you have four strips, it's time to press. Pressing seam allowances like this will makeyour finished patchwork piece less bulky andit helps to ensure that each corner of a squarepiece matches with corners of other squares around it. We'll sew them together. Then press seams open! After repeating the same process with the rest oftwelve squares, we have two patchwork panels. Then we'll fuse each of them onto a pieceof medium to heavy weight batting. like that. And press.

DIY: Wine Bottle Light & Wit & Whistle November 3rd, 2009 This past spring Daniel and I went on a road trip from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon.

Andy not martha - to make: marble magnets I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying. Here, in order of appearance, are the places I referenced: paper candy instructions with pictures (this is the first place I saw this project) dogmestic with instructions and pictures photogeek pictures ugly green chair cute ladybug magnets – pictures with packaging threads at Glitter:onetwothree I bought all of these supplies at Michael’s, including the glue I went back for since I got the wrong kind to start with. These are great packaged in those Altoid-sized tins, I’ve seen them in office/gift shops like that.

DIY envelope clutch (vintage romper, river island feather headband) I’ve been wanting an oversized clutch for a while now, especially since I laid eyes on that Celine clutch shot by Tommy Ton for style.com. Its minimalism is so beautiful. Then, I saw the Clare Vivier La Pochette on ofakind.com and instantly knew what my next DIY would be. Glasses Sleeve: a tutorial Sometimes it's fun to sew on a small scale. When I first started getting into sewing I made about 100 cases for my phone. It's a fun, quick little project that you'll actually use everyday. Of course you could modify this tutorial to make any kind of sleeve. Materials: Outer Fabric Lining Fabric Batting (you could substitute 1-2 sheets of felt) Tutorial: Lay your glasses down on your fabric. Cut the same size piece from your lining fabric. Lay the outer fabric on an oversized piece of batting. Now have some quilting fun! Tip: to get parallel, straight lines I lined up the right side of my presser foot with the edge of the fabric Now line up the foot with the stitch you just made. Keep going and you'll have something like this: Cut off the extra batting. Sew as shown below: Make sure your glasses fit nice and snug before cutting off the extra seam allowance. Leave the outer piece inside out. Insert lining into the sleeve. This part is a little tricky and difficult to photograph. Hope you enjoy!
