TUTORIAL: MOBILE PHONE POUCH with POCKET

I love making this easy peasy mobile pouch. It’s great gift and it needs only a little bit of scraps and time
So, now here we go:
First of all, measure you mobile phone from sides to side and ADD 1 inch (or you can add a little more if you’re unsure/newbie)


Mine was 3” x 5 “ (4” x 6” with seam included).

Now the FUN part:
1. Get your scrap and do the following


a. CUT 2 pcs ( 4” X 6”) of each MAIN FABRIC, LINING, INTERFACE & BATTING
b. Cut 1 pcs of (4” x 4”) of MAIN, LINING &  INTERFACE (for pocket)
c. Cut 1 elastic cord according to your desire
d. Cut 2 decorative ribbon for the side loops

2. Iron the Interface to the MAIN fabric


3. Let’s do the pocket now. 

Put the MAIN  the LINING (right sides facing) and stitch along the TOP part (1/4”). Turn it around, press nicely and top stitch it.

4. Put the pocket to the bottom front part of the MAIN fabric and stay stitch around the sides the bottom.

5. Attach/Stay stitch the elastic cord and the ribbon to the back part of the MAIN fabric

Tutorial: Placemats in a Jiffy

My sons badly need a new set of placemats. I want something in dark and bright color plus easy to wash & dry. So I rummaged through my fabric stash and found this dark blue fabric with cartoon character and I took out my fave red gingham. The red gingham is cotton Ssnthetic mix and the blue one is pure cotton.

and here's how I made it:

1. Cut the Main (Blue) fabric as desired.  Mine is: 17" x 14"  Cut the backing fabric (red gingham)  approx. 1 " more of the main fabric (on all sides) => 19" x 16"

2. Place the main fabric on the backing (wrong sides facing) and fold in the remaining inches. Pin all around.


3. Sew sew sew...zzzggggzzggg...


 4. Voila you're done...






Now your lil one can have one or two of her/his favorite cartoon too...^_^

I bought few back issues of craft magazines (handmade & country craft) from Australia and quite excited to make few items there...it's simply mind blowing ...
