My laptop bag tutorial on Sew Mama Sew!
I was so excited when Beth from Sew Mama Sew! invited me to contribute to their Back to School month of projects. I thought it would be the perfect time to actually make the laptop bag I wanted for quite some time. So today finally the tutorial went live at Sew mama Sew, and Jessica also posted about it in her blog How About Orange, could this day get any better? I am actually working on a passport pouch and checkcover to match the bag so wen I go to Chile in september I can take all of them with me and of course I will share the how-to’s for you to do the same if you’d like! But for now let’s start with the laptop bag! And to all of you visiting from Sew Mama Sew! I hope you all have a wonderful day! * This tutorial is provided for personal use only.

Tissue case tutorial I’ve used my new sewing machine to make these very simple tissue cases from scrap of linen fabrics. They are basically a lined fabric rectangle folded to meet at the center. I make the outer fabric longer than the lining fabric so it automatically folded inside, because I don’t like the lining fabric showing at the edge. It also eliminates the need of topstitching. The tutorial is only two pages, but please tell me if something is not clear in it.

Fat Quarter Bag Tutorial This project is a really quick and easy one creating the perfect little girl-bag. (Or maybe even a grown-up girl bag.) The possibilities are endless. I’ll demo the basic assembly technique and then a couple of embellishing options and you can let your creativity go from there! To start all you’ll need is a Fat Quarter. First of all, what is a Fat Quarter? Begin by cutting your FQ’s in half creating 2 pieces 11” x 18”. Match-up your outer fabric and your lining fabric right sides together and pin at the two 11”ends. Pin the ribbon for the handles between the two pieces of fabric, 2” from the outside edges. Now take it to your ironing board. Match up the two seams and pin in place. Tuck lining fabric inside the outside bag fabric. Press the top edge of the bag and top stitch around the edge of the bag. For a decorative ribbon trim, cut the ribbon length you need (about 23”). Measure 1” down from the top of the point/triangle and make a mark. Voila. Repeat bag process.

mon sac en ronds mon sac en ronds je viens enfin de terminer un encours granny, j'en profite pour vous le montrer, après mes problèmes de couture, de photo mais aussi d'informatique, il a bien failli ne jamais aboutir... C'est un sac, un prototype plutôt, commencé avec mon stash d'acrylique 3,5 mais prévu pour être en coton. Finalement, comme il a avancé très vite, je l'ai terminé en acrylique, et il a au moins un atout indéniable, sa légèreté incroyable. A la base, j'avais 2 obsessions de construction à concilier : d'abord des ronds de brides tout simple mais qui s'assemblent symétriquement entre eux et enfin la construction d'un angle 3D qui tienne la route. et tout ça a aboutit beaucoup plus vite et facilement que prévu, j'aurai dû me méfier... parce que c'est tout le reste qui ne s'est pas passé comme prévu! Pour l'assemblage, je l'ai fait au fur et à mesure mais je ne crois pas qu'il existe de tuto ou de vidéo de ma méthode toutefois, Patty a un tuto d'une méthode similaire, à bientôt edit du 06/10

Book cover tutorial (image heavy) My books are among one of my most prized possessions. I love to read, just about anything from the silly and childish to the tear jerking and latest craze. So I have (finally--I know, I know) put together this super-duper easy Book Cover tutorial, that any level sewer seamstress can do, for any size book, hey you can even hand stitch it! Materials: -Outer fabric (I used canvas) -Inner fabric (I used cotton) -Lightweight fusible interfacing -Brown or butcher paper -Pencil -Ruler -Trim's (lace, buttons, rickrack) optional -1/4" seams where used thruout. Cut out (or piece together) a piece of paper larger than your book, height and width wise. Wrap paper around your book, crease and mark the edges with a pencil. Now, you are going to add your seam and inner flap allowances.I added 1/2" to the top and bottom, and 2 1/2" to each side (for inner flap). And now, the fun part! So I attached my bright cherry red rickrack in place. (almost done!) Your all done!!! Doesn't your book look nice and cozy now?

Easy Feather Purse This was a guest post over at Jen's super awesome Blog ,Social Salutations, HERE .Just Re- Posting it on my blog.Today, I am going to show you how I made this, oh so fun, feather purse from a $5.00 feather duster, a purse, and some hot glue. Sound fun? Well let's go do it. I did a little research first and found that the great, Jenni Radosevich of the I Spy DIY, Blog did one, also Keira from the awesome blog A Pretty Penny, did this cool feather clutch. Well Lets get started. Tutorial Things you Need 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. I sorted my feathers by size. I worked in 2 inch sections, so I could take my time. I trimmed the top quills, and checked to see if any of feathers were loose and needed to be glued down in different spots. I used some leftover Suede I had to cover the quills, But a Pretty Velvet Ribbon would look awesome too. And Taaa Daaaa! All done! So excited to wear this little baby out.I told you I was Feather Obsessed! I Hope you all have a Fantastic Day.

Made By Marzipan First we’ll cut the inner fabric pieces. This is what will show when your case is opened. All pieces will be cut to the same width: measure the Width of your device and add 1 inch. For an iPod Touch or newer iPhone, cut the pieces to 3.25 W x 5.75 L3.25 W x 5.25 L3.25 W x 4.0 L Now we’ll make the corner pockets. Fold the squares in half to create triangles and press. Now we’ll sew together our inner fabric pieces. Next we’ll make our tab closure. Now we can cut the rectangle of outer fabric. With the sewn inner fabric face up, place the tab along the center edge of the shortest rectangle. Then lay the outer fabric face down on top of the the inner fabric and pin in place. Trim the edge of the tab if necessary. Now we’ll cut the inserts. We’re going to cut the chipboard into five pieces. Before inserting, we’ll add some batting to protect the device. Slide the short insert into the case and work it down to the bottom. Next add a binding piece. Fold the raw edges inward.
