picnic dress Several people have asked me how to make my Picnic Dress. It’s a bit too complicated for the step by step instruction on how to draft a pattern I gave for the draped t-shirt, but I hope this will be enough detail for anyone who is familiar with how dresses are made. You will need 4 yards of 45″ fabric and an 18″ zipper. Add a Zipper to a Finished Tote Bag My customers are always challenging me. One recently asked if I could add a zipper to an existing Oversized Beach Tote so that she could use it as an overnight bag. So in my usual way, I researched, I thank (thunk? thought? perseverated?) - and over-thought it in my anal/perfectionist way....

Adding recessed top zipper to purse/bag -Tutorial As promised yesterday here I am with a tutorial to add top zipper to your purse.You know I always prefer purses with zippers,somehow they feel safer & I don't have to worry that something inappropriate may peek out at the wrong time;) Among top zippers,the most elegant & professional looking is recessed or sunken top zipper. So without further ado ...............lets begin. When we make purses we usually cut outer & inner lining pieces equal,but as you can see here the lining is smaller.So first you prepare the outer pieces (don't join them yet) Now you decide how much recessed should your zipper be?????? To that measurement add 2 " & cut 2 pieces from the outer fabric with width equal to width of the top of the outer piece.This is what I mean............we will be sewing the zippers & lining to these pieces which I am going to call STRAPS. Cut little angles at the inside ends of theses straps as you can see in the pics above.These angles ensure that the zipper ends don't become bulky.

Easy Tutorial - How to insert a concealed top edge bag zipper If you want to see the finished bag that features this zipper here it is. This is a tutorial for a nifty bag zipper. What is nifty about this bag zipper is that it makes bags look neat and professional. This is because the zipper is inserted 1" (2.5cm) or more down from the top edge of the bag. Bag Your Jacket Lining Lining a jacket makes it last longer and become easier to slip on and off. Best yet, using the bagging method is as quick or quicker than finishing an unlined jacket.

Zippered Welt Pocket Done Properly A long time ago, I wrote the Pocket Series, which was a manic string of tutorials on making 25? 26? different pockets. It was meant to be a bunch of short, quick tutorials so that even the beginner-est of us could feel confident adding pockets to the various projects they were working on. One of those pockets was the zippered welt pocket. In the writeup, I mentioned (in para 3 of that post) that the method demonstrated was not the usual one I used to make that kind of pocket but I went ahead anyway because it was a short-cut version that could be finished in a few, easy-to-visualize steps.

Recessed Zipper How-To I've had a few questions about how to install a recessed zipper closure on a handbag. This has to be the longest tutorial written in the history of tutorials! I did my best to explain, but please let me know if anything is unclear. You Will Need: - (1) 14" zipper- (2) 15.5" x 2.5" inside upper fabric- (2) 15.5" x 16" inside lower fabric (I demonstrate using my own pattern, feel free to experiment!)- (2) 15.5" x 18.25" outer fabric (or your own pattern) Tutorial: Puffy Pouch Here comes the tutorial for the puffy pouch ;)As I promised, I am introducing two ways to make this pouch, one made with a 5" flex frame which may not be very accessible and the other made withvelcro which is fairly easily found at any craft stores.(The flex frame can be spotted at here,here, and here.) I love this pouch either way.This pouch is like the fabric basket tute andthe patchwork drawstring tute combined into onewith a little twist, so yeah, it's quick and easy again!!I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll like it....!!! As always, seam allowances are 1/4" unless otherwise noted.
