I'm working on a new blog, because this one just keeps getting spammed.
But in the meanwhile I would like to show you my newest pattern!
You can download the pattern and the tutorial for free!
They are both in PDF format.
I hope you enjoy it!
Tutorial DS pouch
I made this pouch for the DS Case swap on craftster.org. I decided to make a tutorial so that people that have a ds can make there own pouch.
I also have one for sale on etsy, for the people that can't sew.
Here is a photo of the completed pouch:
First make a pattern. Here are the sizes you have to use for the DS Lite.
Cut out the following fabric pieces. The plain green is the lining of the pouch.
I used a seam allowance of 1.5 cm.
Fold the dotted green part like on the picture. This is going to be the cover of the bag for the games. Sew the dotted green flap on of the outside pieces.
Fold the top of the (brown) bag part and sew the top.
Put the bag part under the flap. Put the other outside on to it, like on the next picture. The right sides of the fabric are put together. Sew the bag so it it 17,5 cm long. You can clip the seam allowance now.
Put the right sides of you lining fabric together and sew the bag(17.5 cm long)
Clip the corners and fold the top.
Fold all the seamallowances like on the picture. Put the lining into the outside bag. Now fold the top of your lining and put the top of the outside bag into it.
Do this on both sides of the bag.
Sew the top to the lining, both sides. Put a cord or ribbon through the 1 cm hole on both sides of the bags. This might be a bit tricky, a paperclip will help a lot.
Then you are done!
Tutorial for skirt with lining:
Note: Colored fabric on these pictures is the right side of the fabric.
Note 2: I'm dutch, so there can be some mistakes in the text.
Make a pattern using a measuring tape.
tw = waist.
so the first circle is 1/3 of your waist minus 1 cm.
Hold the beginning of the measuring tape at the black dot and turn the end to make a nice circle.
Cut the pattern out of folded fabric. Keep on side at the fold.
Add 2 cm at the waist and open side, add 4 at the bottom.
Sew from the bottom till the zipper. Turn it around and iron in your folds from bottom to top.
Sew in the zipper. I pin the zipper first to make the fabric overlap the zipper. Then I turned the skirt and handstitched the zipper clossest peace of fabric. Remove the pins and sew!
Now make an inner skirt (the same way as you made the outer skirt). Sew it on the zipper the same way, but then on the other side and further away from the zipper. This picture is how it looks after sewing, if you want to sew the zipper to the innerskirt you have to have the wrong sides out.
To make the top put the skirt inside out, with the right sides to eachother and put a waistband in the middle.
I pinned it, handstitched it and then sewed it.
Turn the dress and sew over the innerskirt and the waistband.
To finish the bottom I folded the 4 cm twice and pinned, handstitched and sewed.
Finish off your seams with a zig zag stitch.
