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.

Dr. Suess Chair "How To" Since my post about my new "Dr. Suess" chair, I have had many inquiries on how we re-covered it. I'm sure this is not the proper way but, it's what worked for us. It was so easy that we can't wait to do it again. Maybe one for the master bedroom. I scored this chair at a local thrift store for $30. The first thing we did was pull off the existing fabric. We left all the batting in tact since it was still in great condition. Each piece was used as a pattern to cut the new fabric. Using a staple gun, we applied the new pieces in the opposite order that they were removed. The last piece was the trickiest. This was the first time I attempted a DIY upholstering job. This project is linked up to:

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. And yes, a bag with a zipper! It can be done, I promise.There are plenty of photos, so hopefully that will help. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments section and I'll be happy to clarify. **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! 1. 2. 3. 4. Sometimes, at the end of this step, if my strap doesn't feel sturdy enough, I'll cut a thin strip of interfacing and tuck it inside the crease before sewing. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. WHEW!

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.

Tutorial: Messenger Bag from Cargo Pants Want to make one of these? From a pair of these? Here's the tutorial! Materials: 1 pair cargo pants (from the going to Goodwill pile of course) 1/2 yard lining material bias tape (store bought or make your own) thread {1/4" seam allowances throughout} Getting started... Take your pair of cargo pants and cut the inseam of each leg of the pants up to the crotch area. Cut the bag exterior pieces: front flap (this is where the cargo pocket comes in handy - cool pockets you don't have to sew!) Cut the same size pieces from the lining material. Make the strap by placing the long pieces right sides together, sew down each side. Now make the front flap. Assembling the lining: Take gusset pieces (2 sides and a bottom) and sew the short ends together. Lay your connected gusset pieces right sides together on top of the front of the bag piece, pin, sew. Lay the back of the bag down and set the front/gusset piece on top, pin in place. Make the exterior just like you did the lining of the bag.

Welcome to the Free Bag Patterns section at Here you'll find a collection of over 1000 free bag patterns & tutorials collected from all over the web. 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.
