Your Free One-stop Site for Costume Information & Images elm street life: DIY: Bow clutch sewing tutorial. And fiiiinally... the tutorial you've been waiting for. This is my first real sewing tutorial - which scares me a bit, because I've never actually taken a sewing class, so I don't know all the terminology. What I do know is that I've learned to sew lots of things by reading tutorials, so hopefully I can make this simple enough that even you beginners can feel confident making a bag. **Also, please note except where I say, "Sew close to the edge," I am using a 1/2" seam allowance throughout. Ok, let's get started! Supplies you'll need: 1/2 yard exterior fabric* 1/4 yard interior fabric (I recommend a quilting cotton) 9" zipper that matches your exterior fabric 1/4 yard #808 Pellon Craft Fuse interfacing Sewing thread that matches your exterior fabric Sewing machine Scissors Pins Iron & ironing board *I recommend a medium to heavier weight cotton for this. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. WHEW!

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.

Make handbags, tote bags, wine bags, duffel bags, backpacks, and more! And since bags often consist of simple shapes with just a few seams, they can be a great first project for a beginner just learning how to sew. Making a bag can also be a great way to use those smaller pieces of fabric you may have leftover from otherprojects, particularly if the bag design is small. Sewing Quick Tips: #1: Make sure to reinforce seams that will be subject to stress (such as the seams of a bag or where the bag handles attach to the body of the bag, especially if you plan to use the bag for heavy items) by either stitching again over the first row of stitching or by using a smaller stitch length. #2: Before cutting your pattern pieces from your fabric, always press your fabric first.

The Fairly Bucket Bag–Free Pattern and Tutorial A couple of months ago I was tempted to buy a simple bucket bag at the store. They have been popping up everywhere I shop, and are in many of the on-trend outfit compilations I love. I did think, however, that the bags I like would be fairly easy and fairly inexpensive to make. So I started fiddling around with a pattern and came up with the Fairly Bucket Bag. It is a fun, Fairly simple patten. Yes, it requires some hardware, but trust me, it is No Big Deal! The bag has an adjustable strap, so it can be worn as a shoulder bag, or as a cross-body bag. Although I provide the dimensions for only one size, you can easily scale this down or up. The instructions show you how to make an interior zippered welt pocket, which is Fairly simple. So far my tween and I think this is a Fairly great bag for Autumn. Gather Supplies and Tools 1/2 yard exterior fabric I used cotton/linen canvas, but you can use quilt-weight cotton if you want.
