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...

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!

Of Dreams and Seams: T-Shirt Refashion-Extravaganza! Project 1 Is there anything better to wear in summer than a one-piece-jersey dress? No double layers and bulking at the waist, and you can just throw it in the washing machine like a regular t-shirt and don't even have to iron it afterwards. Well, it was time I made myself some of these! I had cleaned out my closet a while ago, and - being a Re-fashionista - it took care of the problem in the closet, but made the one in the sewing room much worse... Look at the huge pile of T-shirts I had sorted out - some because of the wrong fit, some because of stains, some from my husband, and well, many because I just actually don't really wear t-shirts at all: Much better than the sales bin at a fabric store, right? This dress was super quick - I chose three shirts: A pink one from a production I was in, a black one from Finland (both shirts from good quality jersey but I just never really wore them), and a striped one which had stains... Oh, and here's the back. Happy sewing and a great summer to you all!

mini pocketbook I’m sure that many of you, like me, are on an eternal quest for organization. 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. This tutorial is about helping you stay organized, in a quick, easy, and super-cute way. the pattern …is only four rectangles. the body is 7.25″ tall.the large pocket is 5.5″ tallthe medium pocket is 4.25″ tallthe small pocket is 3″ tall materials needed I chose a vintage cotton canvas for the body in a bright retro floral, and quilting weight cotton in a matching color for the interior. 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.

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.

Bathroom Update!! I showed you last week how to make some very cute jewelry holders with clothes pin and a piece of wood(heres where DIY Jewelry Holder), now I just wanted to show you another way to use them. Use them to hang belts, scarfs, tights, tank tops, and spaghetti strap tops, you name it I am sure it will work! Like I said before I plan on making some plain ones for my closet for at my apartment to hold some of the things mentioned above. I love the fact that I could store a pair of sunglasses on top of the clothes pin and I even hang some of my rings on them as well! Here are a few more pictures so you can get a better look at it! That earring holder should be up on my etsy page within the week I have several to sell that are blue. Happy Hump Day :) I am headed off to Austin to see my sister, a.k.a my cousin, Pegleg!!

5 Ways to Turn Zippers into Awesome Arm Candy UPDATE: By popular demand, Zipper Bracelet Kits ($15) and readymade Zipper Bracelets ($20) are now available in the Brit + Co. shop! You know we love turning unconventional materials into wearable accessories. Today, we’re tackling zippers! Materials: - zippers - E-6000 quick hold contact adhesive - velcro or snap buttons - leather crimps + clasps - Tools: needle nose pliers, sharp scissors First thing to do is get your zippers! 1. These bangles are sweet, and have a definite friendship bracelet vibe. Use colored zippers for these, in whatever colors you like. Attach cord ends so that you can add a clasp and loop. 2. For this one, you’ll want a zipper with some contrast. We chose a black zipper with gold teeth. 3. This one is silly simple! Get a zipper with a more interesting material like denim. 4. This one is definitely the most complicated but it’s still pretty simple! Take a long zipper and cut it in half (make sure it fits around your wrist twice!). 5. Last, the wrap bracelet!

Baby Girl Nursery DIY decorating ideas I love this one of her sleeping in a bowl of my favorite yarn, Lion Brand Vanna's Choice. I am officially introducing my future crocheter and the newest addition to our family: Zoe! She was born August 31, 2013 weighing 8lbs 1oz and 21 inches long. She has been an easy baby and makes our family complete. Her nursery was a work in progress, and although you saw bits and pieces of it throughout the last 9 months, I thought I would post a round-up of all the crafts I made for it now that its all come together. This Alphabet Wall Art was easy to make and customize to the colors of her room. Shelves from Target make a place to display photos, books and this adorable Baby Clutch Ball! Daisy flower wall decals came THIS Etsy shop and matching Daisy Garden night light from Pottery Barn Kids. Crochet Lamb Mobile doesn't exactly go with my "theme" but it is so sweet and perfect for over the changing table. DIY Hair Bow Holder for all those girly accessories! Sweet dreams Zoe :)
