Needle and Spatula: Pleated Pouch Sewing Tutorial

Needle and Spatula: Pleated Pouch Sewing Tutorial
I originally posted this project in August and have been meaning to make it again to do a tutorial ever since. This bag combines elements from a number of different tutorials and projects out there, I basically mixed and matched elements to come up with what I wanted. It has squared off bottom corners which give it a good amount of inside volume and a nice shape. It can stand up (and would stand up even more if made with home dec weight fabric or using interfacing). TERMS OF USE: For personal, non-commercial use only. What you will need: First, on the bottom outside pieces, mark lightly at the top (long) edge of the rectangle at 3.5", 4.5"(middle), and 5.5" from the edge. Fold the two outer markings so each comes in to the center point and pin in place as shown below. Pin the front bottom pieces to the top pieces and sew together (sorry these next two pics didn't turn out great - I was trying not to use my flash but they are kind of blurry, I think you can still tell what to do).

Thank you Olga for this tutorial! Source Click here... for more great ideas! Knitty Gritty Thoughts: Happy Thanksgiving and Free Fabric Styrofoam Ball Pattern! Supplies are easy, most of them you'll probably already have around the house. You'll need - Fabric - your choice of colors and prints. The amount you need depends on the size of the styrofoam balls you use and how thick you place the fabric. Start by cutting your fabric in 2 inch strips as shown above. After you've cut the strips, cut each strip into 2 inch widths so you end up with 2x2inch squares You'll have a nice pretty stack of squares! Now, pull up a chair, put on a movie and let's get pinning! Now, you're going to learn how to fold the fabric squares. Next, fold the fabric in half again and hold it as shown above. Now, pin. Now, pin the second one. You continue doing this around and around and finish the first round. Start a second round slightly offset from the first and continue on your way, round after round. Continue along to the bottom. Voila! Here's a sampling of the latest balls I've completed. Careful! Happy Crafting All!

Needle and Spatula: Card Wallet Sewing Tutorial As promised, here is a sewing tutorial to make a cute card wallet with a button and elastic closure. These are great for when you want to just carry a few cards and maybe some cash with you instead of a big wallet, or you could use them to hold business cards. Also, in the spirit of the holidays, you could use these as gift card holders that then have a useful life afterwards! TERMS OF USE: For personal, non-commercial use only. What you will need: I actually cut out the interfacing first then fused it to the two front pieces, then cut them out to be the same size, but you could also cut both out first then fuse. Find the midpoint of the top 5 1/2" edge of the larger piece of outer fabric, and fold the elastic into a loop and hold it at the midpoint. Place the smaller piece of fabric on top (right sides facing) and pin to either side of the top of the elastic to hold in place. Fold open and iron flat. Either way, pin the lining and the outside piece together with right sides facing.

open wide zippered pouch: DIY tutorial Doesn’t it ever get annoying digging through a zippered pouch? I love being able to see what’s inside and what I’m searching for. I spotted this little pouch the other day and had to make something similar. I also made a bunch of sizes, but today I’ll show you the small size, next time, I’ll share the medium and large sizes (not pictured) so you can make all three! Materials: fabric, 1/4 yard would be plentyzipper, at least 10″ long or longerthreadinterfacing of your choice, I used Pellon 101SF, or skip it all togetherscrap for zipper end pull Directions:(1/2″ seam allowance, unless otherwise noted) (Optional) Fuse on or baste on interfacing of your choice to main exterior pieces. Lay one exterior piece right side up, lay zipper (teeth side down) on top with the zipper pull at the left – aligning zipper tape edge to the raw edges of the top of the exterior piece. Use your zipper foot and a 1/4″ seam allowance. Flip so that the fabrics are wrong sides facing and press. That’s it! Ta-da!

Sacs furoshiki Me revoilà enfin avec la suite des furoshikis. Pour rappel ce sont ces foulards savamment noués selon des techniques japonaises ancestrales pour tout porter et/ou empaqueter. Les furoshiki étaient un peu tombés en desuétude, mais devant l'ampleur des déchets de sacs plastiques, les associations écologiques japonaises et le ministère de l'environnement tentent de les remettre au goût du jour. Vous en avez eu quelques exemples dans mon articles sur les éco-emballages. Pour la solidité, le tissu est bien sûr important, mais les noeuds bien plus. Le sac d'écolier/sac à dos Grands sacs/cabas en bandoulière Sacs à mains et sacs de courses Il existe plusieurs modèles de sacs à provision selon la forme de ce qu'il y a à transporter. New 05/2007. Une société japonaises a, par ailleurs, lancé un sac multiusage type furoshiki à emmener partout. Vos réalisations Si vous faites un sac furoshiki, je veux bien une photo ou le lien vers celle(s) de votre blog Sources et autres modèles

sacs - www.librefil.fr Sac cazy patch Quoi de plus féminin qu' un sac ? le sac d'une femme est une jolie énigme. Il est toujours différent, de par sa forme et encore plus de par son contenu......mille et un trésors peuvent s'y glisser: le plus beau des rouge à lèvres, une carte bancaire, des photos d'enfants, de son amoureux, un téléphone portable, un agenda, nos petits secrets nos grands trésors.....Et les hommes, comprennant bien l'utilité d'un tel accessoire , commencent à l'adopter .

✄ J’ai testé un tuto " portefeuille " ✄ « L'heureuse imparfaite J’ai testé et j’ai aimé un super tuto (en anglais) mais avec des photos super bien expliquées "Bi-fold Wallet Tutorial" (portefeuille double). Alors le tuto je l’adoOOore, mais je n’ai pas encore trouvé un thermocollant double face qui me satisfasse à 100%… Je sens qu’elles vont s’y plaire mes CB et cartes de fidélité ! Même s’il faut reconnaître que ce mois-ci le shopping n’est pas roi… Curieusement peu encline à faire des achats…Bizarre, bizarre. Et derrière les rangements des cartes, une grande poche pour glisser les billets et autres tickets. Et voilà, y a plus qu’à refermer d’un simple appui sur la pression ! Toutes les explications sur le blog "Modest Maven" (et bon si vous avez une question en français, n’hésitez pas à me demander !). Like this: J'aime chargement…

500 posts :: craft day I've been busy making patterns and samples and here's what you could make (if you'd like to join in!) 2-layer handstitched cupcake purses! Complete with an easy sew-in zip that the most terrified zip-sewer can conquer! This post has A LOT of photos to guide you through the process, I hope they make the instructions easy to understand :: To print the pattern simply right click the picture, save to your computer and print. Cut out :: 2 purse pieces & 1 of each cupcake piece. On one of the purse pieces stitch the ribbon into position. Stitch the ribbon to your cupcake piece. Make sure the ends of the ribbon are tucked underneath and then they can't fray. Pin you cupcake into position and stitch at right angles to the edge. Pin your cupcake icing into position and again, stitch at right angles to the edge. Sew your button on using a two strands of thread (it's stronger) Once your purse is decorated it's time to conquer the zipper! pin the zip to the decorated layer of your purse. and tra-la!
