How to make a lined zippered pouch tutorial Here is a quick little tutorial for making a zippered pouch with a lining. It isn’t that hard and I always feel like I have really accomplished something when I am finished —and they make great gifts! I was a mentor for one of the youth at our church. I wanted to give my Confirmand (the sweetest girl) a gift with her bible verse so I decided to make a little zippered pouch with the bible verse sewn inside. Another bonus was that it doubled as the “gift bag” for this beautiful handmade cross . Zippered Bag Tutorial To make a pouch begin with 4 pieces of fabric (two of outer fabric, two of lining fabric) all cut the same length as the full length of your zipper and any width you choose. Make a zipper sandwich. With a zipper foot sew across the top between the edge of your zipper sandwich and the zipper teeth (closer to the zipper feet). When finished and you pull fabric back it will look like this. When both sides are completed it will look like this. Turn right side out.

DIY Sew: Rectangle Top Summer weather calls for casual loose clothing, I saw these pins on pinterest via seamsforadesire, and knew I wanted to try to recreate the summer look: First figure out what the measurements are by measuring elbow to elbow (34'') and shoulder to mid thigh (30'') Use a ruler and a disappearing pen to map out the measurements onto the fabric (make sure you fold your fabric in half with good sides touching; you'll probably need about 2 yards of stretch knit fabric) Cut, then pin and sew up the sides (where the sketch is marked in red) Lastly, measure 3'' from the center and bottom of shirt and cut in a semi-circle Wear!

Dolman Sleeve Top Over the past few months, I've seen slouchy tops popping up everywhere. Most of the tops in my closet are slim fitting, so to add a little variety to the mix I took a shot at making this blue slouchy dolman sleeved shirt. I loved how it turned out, so I made another. And because I like you guys so much, I made a tutorial to go along with it. What you'll need: 1 1/2 yards of knit/stretchy fabric (slightly more or less depending on your size)thread in a coordinating color Step 1. Step 2. Once they're cut, they should look like this: Step 3. Next, with right sides together, sew up your shoulder seams. * I've heard many people say they have no desire to sew because they don't have a serger, and feel like their clothes will look "homemade" without one. Step 4. Line up the rectangle and the top of your shirt, and cut an identical neck hole along the folded edge, as seen below: Now, with right sides together, pin the rectangle to your top, matching up the neck holes. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.

Reversible, Lined, Color-Blocked Tote I’ve got a new summer bag that I totally love. It’s nice and heavy-weight, the perfect size for all my stuff, annnnd…… It’s reversible! Yay! It’s good to have options. Here are the TOTE bag versions we’ve tried so far…. This time around we’ll make it: • reversible (similar to having a lining) • color-blocked on the outside with heavy Duck Cloth (read more about duck cloth and other fabrics in my book) • DIY handles Summer, Summer, Summer time. Let’s get started. Start by cutting all your bag pieces. The reversible bag is basically two separate bags, sewn together at the top. Decide what size you’d like for your bag. Start by sewing the handles. If you’re using lightweight fabrics, place right sides of the fabric together and sew down each side. However, with heavy duck cloth it’s very difficult to pull the fabric right-side out. Now piece together the bag fronts and backs…. Now your bag pieces are ready to assemble. Then Box out the bottom of each bag, about 2 1/2 inches on each side.

Mod Purse Refashion, a Tutorial The mod purse refashion is officially my first project inspired by Instagram. Are you guys on IG yet? I am addicted, and its bad. I follow all of these amazing people, and see all of these amazing photographs, that at some point it was bound to happen. I got inspired. Susan of Freshly Picked is the particularly hip IGer that inspired this purse. I pretty much L-O-V-E the way this purse turned out. Its my new favorite purse. And I know this may sound hard to believe, but it was actually relatively easy to make! Let me show you what I did. First off, you will need your own thrifted leather purse. Now, time for the fabric. Once again, you find me using my children’s toys as sewing / DIY supplies. I only use the glue to secure the hardware back onto the bag initially. And there you have it, a super mod bag. I will totally be rocking this at ALT. Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time… Happy Sewing! Jess Latest posts by Jess (see all)
