Little boxy pouch tutorial | three bears My latest favourite thing to make, little boxy pouches. It took me almost an entire morning, lots of paper and sellotape and countless cups of tea to figure this out. I’m here to save you the bother. This little bag is 4.5 inches long, 3 inches high and 2 inches deep, just right for a lipstick and a compact (or better still, lots of sweets). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. I hope these instructions are clear. Do let me know if you use this tutorial, I’d love to see how it works out for you. ***How I add lining*** There may be a quicker way but this is how I add a lining. Like this: Like Loading...

I purchased 1 yard of each fabric and had plenty of fabric left over. Let's get started. Cut out all your pieces. Cut a 1 inch square out of the bottom corners of all 4 pieces. Interface pieces. Take your strap piece and iron each side towards the middle. Then fold in half and iron. Round the corners of the flap pieces. With right sides together sew the flap pieces together leaving the top open. Clip the curves. Turn right side out and iron. Stitch across the bottom of the pocket.

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. 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. Nu är det bara att vända alltihopa så att rätsidan kommer utåt och pressa på den lite.

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. Ihren Ursprung hat diese Tasche nach eigenem Entwurf HIER, als sich meine Freundin Ute im Herbst 2006 eine neue Tasche für ihren Urlaub gewünscht hat. 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. Den oberen Taschenstreifen im Stoffbruch ausschneiden und den Stoffbruch bügeln, als Markierung. Und fertig!

Sewing: TriFold Floral Wallet {Tutorial & Pattern} This is the trifold wallet I made by using the embroidery with flower applique couching on it. You can get the pattern and tutorial on the embroidery work here. Design and sew this wallet only took me a night to complete (with the embroidery face ready), but begin a novice in Illustrator, drafting and finalizing the pattern took me days. It was fun playing around with Illustrator that sometimes I discovered and tried on other tools and got distracted from drawing the pattern. Finding possibilities to create and develop is my hobby and passion, that’s why I love creative handmade so much By the way, you can get the free 5 pages of printable pdf pattern for this trifold floral wallet here. Tips on cutting and ironing fusible interfacing One thing I would like to point out in this tutorial and also for many other purse and handbag sewings, always cut the interfacing in right angle against the direction of the fabric.

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 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. Now with all this, I know you’d like to whip up your own and be a littler greener for your next trip to the store. Let’s get started! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. d) Repeat the above steps for the other corner, but before sewing your gusset line, be sure that the bottom French seam is laying flat in the same direction. But, nice and neat like this: 6. 7. Yay, you are done!

I know I’m not alone in finding the Container Store’s promise of a perfect, organized life utterly seductive. But here’s the thing…I don’t really like purging, I love my stuff. Therefore I also love pretty things in which to stash my stuff, so I get to enjoy my fantasy of being organized and contained.

You’ll also need a button and a bit of elastic for the closure, and a bit of ribbon for the pen. I used two layers of mid-weight interfacing on the body to give it some heft. start with the pockets 1. 2. the closure 3. 4. 6. 7.

Sac week end coeur Encore un sac! Oui, mais pas n'importe lequel: le sac "week end" d'Aime comme Marie, revisité par mes soins, version petit neveu, donc avec de l'amour et du peps (d'ailleurs je n'ai pas pris de photos de l'intérieur tout doublé dans le tissu rayé que l'on voit sur l'appliqué inversé et à d'autres endroits sur le sac). Toutes mes réalisations sont de l'ordre du débutant en couture, et pour commencer, franchement ce tutoriel est très bien fait, la réalisation pas compliquée et le résultat hyper satisfaisant! Je recommande le blog d'Aime comme Marie ainsi que le blog des fans d'Aime comme Marie (et oui, y en a pour qui ca marche tellement bien qu'ils ont leur propre blog, mais aussi un blog des fans de leur blog!!!...). Alors le tutoriel: Pour agrandir le tutoriel, le lien iciet là Et voici celui de mes mains: Enfin, dernier détail: pour les photos, le sac était rempli de tissu, car il n'a pas de maintien, il ne prend forme que lorsqu'il est plein.
