The library tote tutorial

The library tote tutorial
Here's a fun tote bag project I thunk up (yes, thunk) the other day. Of course there are tons of ways to make a tote bag, but I thought this one was fun and gives you a lot of options no less! | The Library Tote Tutorial | Whether you like things scrappy or streamlined, this bag is ready to go when you are. Ready to make one (or a few?!) Materials: 1/2 yard exterior fabric 1/2 yard lining (if you choose to use any) 1/2 yard for straps, or cotton webbing or a handle type you prefer bias tape - handmade or store bought thread, sewing machine water soluble pen {1/2" seam allowances throughout, unless indicated differently} Cut and prepare pieces: Cut two pieces from the main pattern piece out of the exterior fabric. Cut two pocket pieces. Cut strap pieces: cut two pieces 6" tall by 24-27" long, depending on how long you want your handles to be. Cut reinforcement pieces: these are on the inside of the bag, they can add a decorative or fun touch if you'd like, cut two pieces 3" tall by 13" wide.

Wallet-to-Tote On the Go ~ Tutorial Lorraine from ikat bag is a favorite around here… She has tons of fun tutorials on her blog and she’s joined us before with this wonderful Back to School Pencil Case tutorial. Today Lorraine shares a tutorial for a new summer essential, the On the Go Wallet-to-Tote! Construction includes three main parts: Assembling the Wallet, Assembling the Outer Bag and Making the Lining. From Lorraine: Hello, Everyone. These little bags have been around for as long as I can remember, and I thought they’d be a useful addition to the arsenal of summer gear I stash in my car and/or purse. I have three little girls, aged 3,4 and 6, and we’ve found that summer always takes us on adventures we hadn’t planned for– detours to farmer’s markets, dancing in the rain or treasure hunting en route to the park. We always appreciate an extra bag or two for our loot (and wet clothes)! Part One: Assemble the Wallet:You will need: Note: Please see Part Two & Part Three for a full list of supplies. The bag is completed!

VIDEO TUTORIAL - How to Use a Clover Quick Yo Yo Maker This is an absolute must-read for anyone embarking on bag-making! ALWAYS use interfacing on any bag piece where the pattern reads "cut [specified number] i/f". Interfacing creates structure if it is used on the body of the bag - but is entirely optional here, and using it depends on the weight of the fabric and the finished look that you require. By fusing interfacing to every piece of the outside of the bag you'll add a lot more structure and "OOMPH" to the fabric. You can interface the lining if you want a stiff lining, but it shouldn't be the main support in the bag. It's important to remember that by adding an extra layer of interfacing to a bag piece, you are also increasing the bulk of the fabric.

once upon a thread: the tale of peter rabbit I knew almost right away when Katy first contacted me about Once Upon a Thread which book I would pick. The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. It's been a favorite of mine and my family's for a long time. It has such beautiful illustrations and of course a little lesson to be learned. I decided a child sized messenger bag would be just the right fit in peter rabbit's world.

kate spade diaper bag mini-tutorial After Monday’s post (showing you the Kate Spade-esque diaper bag that I made for our sister-in-law), several of you asked for a tutorial. Here’s the thing. For pretty much every single bag I make, I follow the same approximate steps. They’re here. However, I did modify that tutorial a little to make this diaper bag similar to the ones my sister-in-law loves (think- adding pleats, a curved top and purse-ish handles). To modify the Teacher Tote tutorial to make a Kate Spade diaper bag knock off- Start with 17″x15″ fabric rectangles (two for the exterior and two for the liners). Follow the Teacher Tote tutorial to put together the exterior and the liner. To add purse handles, sew pleather/vinyl/leather tubes. I still added the option of an over-the-shoulder strap as well. The end result of this modified Teacher Tote?

sac quick and easy tutorial: mini coloring tote My kiddo needed a gift to bring to her preschool for a gift exchange. The price limit was around $2 which didn't leave a whole lot of options. Instead of raiding the Target Dollar Spot, I found small coloring books at Walgreens 2/$1 and made a little tote to hold them! I added a few crayons to finish it off. It is an easy project that doesn't use a lot of supplies, making it inexpensive as well. The coloring books I picked up are about 7.75" tall and 5.25" wide. *I used cotton twill as a lining to make the bag sturdier. Step One: Pressing Take one of your main fabric pieces and fold the top short edge down by 1/2 an inch and press. Next, grab your strap pieces. Finally, grab your pocket piece and fold it in half wrong sides touching. Your pieces should look like the photo below :) Step Two: Topstitching Top stitch along both the top and bottom edges of the flaps. Grab your pocket piece and topstitch along the folded edge. Step 3: Fun with your fabric marking pen Step 4: Attaching straps

Coudre facilement un sac shopping pour une petite fille ! (ou pour une grande !) + tuto « version sans couture !!! » Dimanche dernier, c’était Pâques et Lily, ma petite nièce, a pu emmener ses chocolats dans des petits sacs roses réalisés pour l’occasion (et surtout pour ME faire PLAISIR !!!) : Un cousu en 1 heure et un collé en 2 minutes : choisissez votre version ! La version "couture" - 1 heure de travail ! Je me suis inspirée d'un sac shopping publicitaire (pas trop beau mais il aura au moins servi à ça !) Après avoir déambulé dans les rayons "roses" du marchand de tissu (ça change !) J'ai découpé comme ça : Les côtés : - tissu (le même ou 2 différents pour l'intérieur et l'extérieur) : 4 rectangles de 10 cm par 8 cm (avec 1 cm en plus pour coudre) - toile ridigifiante : 2 rectangles de 10 cm par 8 cm Le fond : - tissu : 2 rectangles de 22 cm par 8 cm (avec 1 cm pour coudre) - toile ridigifiante : 2 rectangles de 22 cm par 8 cm (j'en ai mis 2 pour que le fond se tienne bien) Le devant et le derrière : - tissu : 4 formes comme ci-dessus (pour un "endroit" j'ai customisé en appliquant des motifs) Et les anses ?

Free Clothes Patterns Posted on | October 9, 2008 | 7 Comments I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size. Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. These patterns generally of three types. Skirts are very easy to make without a pattern. I came across a few patterns that didn’t fit into any other category, so I gave them their own. We normally assume underwear is too complicated or to time consuming to sew ourselves. Aprons can usually be whipped up in less than an hour. Shirts and dresses are much more complicated to make than skirts. Coats can easily be the most expensive piece of clothing in your wardrobe.

Mais elle est même pas pour moi, c'est même pas drôle.Cela dit, je ne suis pas en reste, car j'en ai en fait trouvé une chez Eurodiff (pour une poignée d'euros), et j'ai honteusement copié le patron pour réaliser celle-ci. Mais comme je suis sympa, et comme il fallait que je réalise une deuxième besace, je me suis fendue d'un petit tuto (que j'essaye d'insérer ici depuis deux bonnes heures, j'en ai marrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre !!) Canalblog, franchement, c'est de plus en plus nul !Après moulte réductions de photos, changements de typos, allègement général, c'est bon, j'ai pû insérer le tuto (il était déjà pas très beau, donc là il est carrément moche, mais j'espère assez lisible : Explications : tuto_besace_3 Patron : Besace_Liberty_1 (Un immense merci à la talentueuse Edith, du blog Edith & Valentine, qui a réalisé le joli patron avec fnd en liberty et jolie typo juste pour vous !!

Tuto sac cabas réversible - Créations by-iaoraNanou Matériel nécessaire : Pour un sac de 35 x 35 x 12, il faut : 50 cm x 100 cm de tissu extérieur 50 cm x 100 cm de tissu intérieur 37 x 14 cm de nappe transparente plastique (facultatif) Fil Pour la partie extérieure : Sur l'envers du tissu, tracer un rectangle de 97 x 35 cm (qui sera le tour du sac) : 35 (devant) + 1 (marge de couture) + 12 (côté) + 1 (marge de couture)+35 (derrière) + 12 (côté). Dans ce rectangle, tracer des lignes verticales à 35,5cm puis à 48,5cm (et non 52,5cm comme sur la photo) puis à 84,5cm (et non 88,5cm) . Plier le tissu aux repères verticaux faits précédemment et repasser afin de bien marquer la ligne droite. Coudre à 0,5 cm de la pliure. Faire de même pour les 3 coins. Assembler et coudre le 4ème coin. Tracer un rectangle de 35 x 12 cm (qui sera le fond du sac). Pour la partie intérieure (doublure) : Faire de même que précédemment mais lors de l'assemblage du 4ème coin, laisser un espace de 8 à 10 cm (qui servira plus tard à mettre l'ouvrage à l'endroit). Anses : Tadam !!!
