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.

Volants à main tutoriel | Comment joyeux I know I teased a lot with this tutorial, mostly because I made it so long a go, 4 months a go to be exact. I took the pictures the week I moved this little blog to wordpress. Since things got so busy after that I almost forgot I had it, until just a few weeks back. And finally today I have time to write this tutorial and hopefully you’ll get a chance to make your own ruffles handbag! This is my first bag tutorial and I though it would be nice to have a lot of steps, so you are warned, there is TONS of pictures maybe that’s why it took me so long hehe The Parts: The Process: [Click Images to Enlarge] I also made this other bag changing the measurements of the main pieces, making it a little big longer and smaller. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and if you make it share pictures in the SewJoyful flickr group! * This tutorial is provided for personal, use only.

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

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.

Terre d'Olina - Côté couture poupee de feutrine Petites poupées qui ont les cheveux et les vêtements échangeables. Chaque 6 pouces de haut. Vous n'avez pas besoin d'une machine à coudre.Peut-être que les enfants peuvent faire. Faire est presque le même que mini-chat . Pyramid Wrist Bag Holiday parties all around and you really don't want to be carrying a large handbag that makes it difficult to dance or has you worrying about keeping an eye on it when you leave it aside. That is why I love wristlets! Spacious enough to carry your necessities and small enough to keep it around your wrist at all times. My friend Kostas over at Milloo handbags was kind enough to put together this Pyramid Wrist Bag tutorial so we can all make out own little party wristlets :) This wristlet measures approx 18cm/7'' so adjust your leather size accordingly if you want a smaller or larger version. You will need: - a sewing machine (it doesn't have to be a professional one as in the pictures) - metallic leather fabric (you can use any leather you prefer but do opt for an animal friendly version if possible) - a zipper measuring approx. 13cm/5" long - metallic clasp and rings/links for the strap - scissors - tailor's chalk or a fabric pen - pen and paper Now, lets sew it up. Sew the zipper on the opening.

How to Make Clothing Buttons from Shrink Plastic… | scissors This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment Some handy notes: 1. single hole, hole punch (like this one here). 2. 3. Okay.. lets get started! Tracing tips: You can use either coloured pencils or permanent pens. Words must be writted backwards in order to be readable. Shrinking the buttons: To shrink the buttons, you can use an oven or a heat gun (the kind used for embellishing). After the buttons have twisted and twirled, and are LYING FLAT, it’s time to take them out. Note: If the skrinking is taking too long, you may need to turn your oven up. Here’s a short little stop-motion to make sure you’ve got the gist of how easy this is! Shrink Paper {here} Circle Punch {here} Hole punch {here} Pens {here} Update: I’ve made a video to show how to shrink the buttons using a craft embellishment heat gun. Kimanh Hi my name's Kimanh.

Rounded & Embellished {Faux Leather} Zipper Pouches A friend of mine had a birthday……and that gave me a good excuse to make her a little something. Instead of making her a regular ‘ol zippered pouch (like my tutorial here ), I made it rounded. And with Faux Leather…….AKA, vinyl. Ha. If you remember my post here , I purchased a stack of this vinyl on the sale table at the fabric store. But here’s a couple rounded pouch ideas using the vinyl……. ………but these pouches can be made with any sort of fabric . Both pouches are lined with a printed cotton fabric. And adorned with a little label. Just think of what you could stuff these with. And if you are anything like me, you’d appreciate a pouch stuffed with treats. (Good thing this friend of mine is a sugar junkie like I am. Make one for you , a friend, or that neighbor down the street who could use a little handmade love. Would you like to make your own rounded pouch? **Remember, you don’t have to use vinyl…….any fabric would work just fine. First decide on your fabric and prints. Related posts:

Free Clothes Patterns Posted on | October 9, 2008 | 7 Comments I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size. Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. Nonetheless, I still love my pattern free sewing. These patterns generally of three types. Skirts are very easy to make without a pattern. I came across a few patterns that didn’t fit into any other category, so I gave them their own. We normally assume underwear is too complicated or to time consuming to sew ourselves. Aprons can usually be whipped up in less than an hour. Shirts and dresses are much more complicated to make than skirts. Coats can easily be the most expensive piece of clothing in your wardrobe.
