Mönster Igår hade jag inte så mycke tid över till att sy, så ett snabbt och lätt projekt var på sin plats! Har spanat in det här Spideman tyget ett tag nu, men det är ganska dyrt att köpa på internet med tanke på att jag ine vet riktigt vad jag ska ha det till. Men så var jag på en outlet utanför Uppsala i fredags och då hittade jag det där för 89 kr/meter och slog till på lite grann. Och det passade faktiskt bra till en börs och matchade bra med namnbandet. Men jag vet inte riktigt vad jag ska göra med resten av tyget! Fick lite mersmak på börsar och sydde en i flodhästtyget också. Material: 4 rektanglar, en 6 gånger 16 cm, en 16 gånger 12 cm, en 16 gånger 17 cm (baksidan), en 4 gånger 10 cm (flärpen på sidan), och ett blixtlås på 12 cm. Beskrivning: Börja med flärpen och sy ned ena kortsidan ca 1 cm med en smal stickning. Sicksacka de tre återstående rektanglarna. Sy sedan fast de två minsta (6 gånger 16 cm upptill och 12 gånger 16 nedtill) på dragkedjan.

Gretelies Tasche Zum Mitmachen :-) *** Bitte nutzt diese Anleitung nur für private Zwecke - DANKE :-) *** Wenn Du eine Tasche nach dieser Anleitung nähst und sie dann vielleicht in deinem Blog oder anderswo zeigst, würde ich mich über einen Hinweis, woher die Inspiration stammt, sehr freuen! Wegen der Nachfragen, wie ich diese Beuteltaschen nähe, und ich sowieso beim letzten Taschennähen ein paar Bilder für jemand Liebes gemacht habe, zeige ich es hier auch noch mal. Hier erst mal die Schnitteile, die Größe kann man natürlich beliebig abändern, oder auch einfach mal mit den Proportionen spielen. Das Beutelteil wird 2 x für die Außentasche und 2 x aus Futterstoff ausgeschnitten, unten schön dolle abrunden, damit es richtig beutelig wird. Möchte man lange Träger für "über die Schulter", schneidet man den oberen Taschenstreifen 2 mal in seiner kompletten Länge minus 3 - 4 cm aus Außenstoff zu. Den oberen Taschenstreifen im Stoffbruch ausschneiden und den Stoffbruch bügeln, als Markierung. Und fertig!

Classic Tote Tutorial Today we kick off a full month of Summer Sewing with Irene‘s classic tote tutorial. You’ll be thrilled to enjoy one of these roomy, well-designed totes on your way to the market, pool or park this summer. We’ll share fun projects to complement (and pop in) your tote all month long! Classic Tote Tutorial by Irene Everyone needs at least two of these. I have ten myself, but I must say that at times, I cannot find a single one because they are in use all around my house. There are 5 dedicated to grocery shopping alone, but these are often taken for a quick trip to the park, or filled with items to be returned and delivered, or even filled with toys that need to be put away. I sewed all of my totes and at least 30 others, which I have given to friends and family. The totes are sewn from home décor cotton fabric which makes them strong enough to carry groceries, but still able to be thrown in the wash with everything else. Let’s get started! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. But, nice and neat like this: 6. 7.

Travel Accessories: Plenty of Pockets Tote - Sew4Home When you're on the road, doesn't it always seems to be the ordinary, everyday things you are suddenly in desperate need of: gum, nail clippers, your headphones? I get a little panicky, certain I've left behind the most obvious items... as if perhaps I'm on an arctic expedition and won't see civilization for weeks. But the opportunity for replenishment doesn't matter; I want my stuff close at hand. We offer a full set of pattern downloads below for the tote body as well as all the pockets. We recommend using a twin needle to do the decorative stitching on this project. Our tote uses a heavy, solid-color duck for the exterior, a fabric that is readily available at numerous outlets, including this pretty 7 oz. duck in brown from Fabric. com. The finished size of the tote is approximately 12½" tall x 11½" wide with 2" deep sides and base. Sew the 1½" button to the center top of the tote front opposite the button loop.

The Angela Shoulder Bag This cute tall and narrow tote is named after my very favorite Angela, my oldest daughter. She designed the bag with a bit o' help from her very favorite aunt. Together they created a simple yet stylish shoulder bag, using Angela's own stash of fave fabric scraps and cotton webbing for the strap. We thought it turned out so well, we asked the designer's permission to share it with you. She graciously agreed to let us re-create the bag, and even let us pick our own fabric. We liked the way the pretty curves at the top stood up straight and tall. Any Sewing Machine (we recommend the Janome Jem Gold 3) Create and place the pockets Find the 8" x 8" interior pocket piece.
