Sewing Project : How to Sew a Simple Wallet for Beginner

img_3675

Hello! Sorry guys! I was busy figure out how to sew this simple wallet. Here is the guide post on “How to Sew a Simpler Wallet”, with card slots and zip pocket. A friendly and easy project for beginner.

Let’s prepare the material and follow me step by step. ^^

Material:

  • Cotton Fabric or Canvas

For the fabric I choose canvas but of cause you can choose other like cotton but need to add in batting. As for canvas also same, need to add in some batting to make it more firm and steady. Some cotton fabric are very lightweight type, try not to use that kind, other than that should be fine.

  • Zipper

As for zipper I use those YKK brand, just get a size that you want. With matching colours or you can mix and match with what you feel like it. Some with nice pulley, or you can add your own pendant.

I used Batting Iron On ones. This batting that I’m using is quite soft, and if I want to use it to do wallet, I might need to put more than one piece. There are differnt type of Fusible and Batting, if you can pass by any local store, they will have some samples to feel the textures, or can just ask for assistance on which to buy.

A Rotary cutter is somehow easier to cut out fabric in a striaght line, Make sure you get a cutting mat too! These are the tools that helps me, each time i cut my fabric i get frustrated without cutting it striaght. So i do love this cutters.

Is good to have a quilt ruler cause it might be easier to see and measure at the correct size. Then cut with a rotary cutter and a cutting mat. Perfect match! 😀

Ok, lets get to work! Lets start.

 Measurement:

Outer Piece: 9 x 4.5″

Inner piece: 9 x 5″ (I use both same designs)

Card slots: 4.5 x 19″

Zip pocket : 4.5 x 3.5 x 1 pc , 3.5 x 3.5 x 1 pc

Zipper 6/7″ (to be cut off the excess)

Prepare 4 piece of fabric, 2 inner piece with the size 9 x 5″, Outer piece 9 x 4.5″

Let’s name it as 9 x 5″ A & B, 9 x 4.5″ A & B.

img_3535

Zip Pockets:

Place your zipper with the zipper head facing up, pointing right side, align the zip pocket piece 3.5 x .3.5″ facing down and pin to the TOP of the zipper.

img_3538

Then turn your zipper over which the head will be facing the left and pin it to the TOP of the zipper with 3.5 x 4.5″ piece. Means align both pieces with the 3.5″ sides to the zipper.

img_3539

So it will like this , the top will be balance and same alignment.

img_3541

Turn it over, bring the longer piece to the back.

img_3561

Card Slots:

*Take the Card Slots piece right side face down, fold down 3″ from the top. Turn it over, place a un use card(Do NOT USE CREDIT CARD or Personal card) to the slot as picture shown. Hold the card and fold from bottom  up.

img_3549

Place your card on the fabric with a little GAP on TOP, then fold by using your fingertip to hold the card and fold until the TOP of the card but leave a GAP where you can see the card so that you can grab the card.

img_3552

img_3556

Iron and press lightly to make a crease line.  Total you will have 4 pockets with 3 crease line for card slots. (Refer to image below)

img_3553

So, it will look something like that.

img_3559

Wallet Inner Body:

Take the Outer piece A (9 x 4.5″), align the zip pocket and the card slot and pin it together first before sew.

img_3560

Then cut out a piece of betting slightly smaller size, best is to use Iron on betting. Iron on to outer piece B.

img_3566

Align and pin it together and sew the sides.

*Do take note of the zipper side, open the zipper slightly a bit cause when you sew it will hit the zipper head if you don’t open the zip.

While sewing, hold the zipper teeth together to have a nice closure.

Do a back-stitch on the zipper part.Cut off the excess zipper.

img_3562

Trim and cut off the excess to have a nice edges.

img_3565

img_3567

Notes Pocket:

Place of the Inner piece A (9 x 5″) right side facing up (as picture shown below)

img_3568

then place B piece right side facing down on top of the outer piece A.

Pin it around the side, leave a gap on the top part of the Notes Pocket.

img_3570

Sew all 3 sides and half of the top side with a opening gap. (To turn over later on). I like to leave a bigger gap, cause it will be easier to turn over.

img_3569

Once you done, you have completed the project! Do testing by putting some coins or cards in.

img_3574

If you want more card slots, you can skip the coins pocket replace with some more card slots. Or if you can DIY other designs like coin pocket at the back of the wallet is also fine.

I will do up a tutorial to help you understand more with this project! Stay tune on my tutorial updates! 🙂

Sewing Project: How to Sew a Laptop Zip Case

Sewing Project_ How to Sew a Laptop Zip Case.png

Hello! Welcome readers! Was busy doing more and more sewing projects now! Feel so tempted everyday to do up one projects and here it goes! I’ve made a laptop case this time round with a zipper ones. Previously I did a envelope one and I quite like it. Especially its comfy to hold.

There are many fabric type to do sewing, This time I used a quilt fabric. Which is better for doing big project like laptop case or bags etc. Because needs something that can hold your laptop well so that it wont spoil your laptop when you bring out.

I found out there is also nice quilt fabric which I just realise. Quilt Fabric looks something like this. They are more on doing Patchwork crafts, Comes with a batting with it so it looks more thick.

I feel this is even better, but there are only few designs out there. So you can just hunt for it in your local fabrics store.

I goanna show you how I sew a laptop case with zip.

It’s very similar to the zip pouch.

Step 1:

Measure your laptop, I’m cutting out one whole piece of fabric and fold to half so that the bottom is seal leave with the side opening. (The Size of the case is depends on the measurement of your laptop)

img_1543

Step 2:

You can align your zipper first to the fabric and see how you want your zip to be. I align my zip until the side, for both side one side shorter one longer so it can hold the laptop.

img_1550

Pin it in place to see the overall picture. 

img_1551Step 3:

Once you done with the alignment, Turn the fabric to the wrong side. Start sewing the sides with a zipper foot all the way to the other side.

How do i close the zipper end:

I sew it across at the end. Do a backstitch 1-2 times. 

img_1552

Turn it back right side out, it will look like this. 

img_1557-2

And try it on your laptop!

img_1558-2

img_1556-1

 

 

TADAH! You’re done!

Is easy right ? The zipper should be quite challenging to sew but just have to make sure your alignment is correct that should be fine!

For the zipper i get those in one YardsSELRES_7e6df0b2-596a-4cdc-b27d-4192b94eb37aSELRES_11b59bb6-ad57-4b0c-b3a7-09b81824f7e9SELRES_36ea7fc9-5e80-4790-8df8-36c066df958bSELRES_b2660643-e652-43f3-90df-9528cbc3600e, comes with zipper puller. Some store have to buy seperately, if you are not sure how long you want the zipper, is good to buy in yards, so that you can measure and cut off the excess. They do have a few designs, like with pendants, or those just normal ones.

What i like about the zipper pullers is i can choose the one with nice ring on it, like the one i using for this project i choose a Zipper Ring which is super cute. You can hunt for nice pendants on it. Or if you know the measurement of the zipper, feel free to get those ready ones 12″inches long or even longer.

So hope this tutorial helps you and stay tune for my video tutorial ! will update real soon!

HAPPY SEWING!

Sewing Project: How to Sew a Drawstring Pouch

Sewing Project_ How to Sew a Drawstring Pouch (Easy Tutorial).png

Hello! I’m doing another post for this project, a Drawstring bag! This is super easy and I goanna show you how to do it.

This is super cute design fabric. I bought it at Spotlight, Cotton and I super love the printing designs! AWWW.

I will defiantly just go back again and again to buy those super nice and cute fabrics prints!

I do found some online too! but they are all Pre Cut Printed Craft Fabric, suitable for small projects like pouches, mini bags etc.. Check them out! You might get what you want too! It’s best to try it with small portion 🙂

img_1909-2

Step 1:

Prepare 2 piece of main fabric which is the body of the bag, Go with the size that you want it to be, can be a square or rectangle shape.

img_1910-2

Face the fabric wrong side to wrong side to each other.

Mark out 2 Inches from the top corner side, then leave 1 Inch gap. same to both side. This is to insert the string to the hole later on.

Pin both fabric in place if you want to then sew from the 2 inches down, Skip the 1 Inch gap and sew down continue.

*Remember do not sew the 1 Inch gap. If you sew you won’t be able to insert the string in.

img_1911-2

After sewing, turn it right side out, and will look something like this.

img_1913-2

Step 2:

Turn back inside again, Iron flat the side first so that when you can see the gap nicely and easy to fold and insert the string later.

This is the 1 Inch gap, you will have a gap in the middle of both side.

img_1915-2

Step 3:

Once you Iron, we goanna do the box up shape.

Turn it wrong side out. Right at the end of the tip, place it flat like a triangle shape.

img_1917-2

Measure a 2 inches, Mark out a line and Sew. This is up to you depends on you want the pouch to be big or small.

img_1918-2

Trim off the excess and will looks like this. Do it for both sides.

img_1920-2

Step 4:

Now lets do the top part. Which is to insert the Bias tape in. But first have to iron and press the fabric. This is to have the mark line and easier to sew down the edges.

img_1921-2

Fold an 1/2 inch, Iron and Press then Sew it. Then fold another 1 inch until you see the side is open as the picture shown. The hole here is to insert the string in.

**I know this part a bit hard to understand here. But do ask me any questions, I will be glad to assist you if I can. 🙂

img_1922-2

Step 5:

The last step is to insert the Bias tape. You can use either String, or Bias Tape or even SELRES_5a16cac0-392b-4e49-b81b-19657301a99bRibbonsSELRES_5a16cac0-392b-4e49-b81b-19657301a99b it’s up to you to decide. 🙂 For Bias Tape, You will need about 12mm wide. Mostly will be 3 yard long.

Prepare 2 String with the length about 20 Inches maybe. I advise to prepare as long as you want so can trim it off later on. Use a Safety pin, pin on the string

Slowly Pull thru the hole until back to the same side. Same for both side. So each side will have 2 string. 

img_1923-2

There! And you are done!

You can add designs or DIY to the pouch if you are using plain fabrics. But I prefer to use printed ones. It’s looks kind of cute thou. ^^

Hope this helps you! Feel free to ask me questions!

I will be doing a tutorial soon, will update right here. Do check it out!

Sewing Project: How to Sew a Circle Skirt with Expose Elastic Waistband

See you soon bestie!love, patricia

Next project! Part of my favourite or I would say turn out to be my favourite. As a beginner, not as hard not easy also. Just need to have the skill to do it. Well, I keep trying until I make a perfect ones. Not as perfect but to be wearable right? Ha Ha. This circle skirt is made of a circle and the part which is quite challenging is to sew follow the circle. I did a few times but I failed to do so. Until I finally made it.

The steps are quite simple.

First you need to do some math measurement.

Measure your waist. Depends on what waist you want, High waist or low waist. For elastic expose you goanna expose your elastic band to show that you are wearing a belt, is to give some texture or design for the skirt. So this will suit better with high waist. Is up to you 🙂 If you don’t want a high waist, you will need to get stretch fabric, like cotton spandex, or any stretch fabric.

Waist Measurement: Your Waist + 1 Inch = Total Inch / 6.28 = Radius ,

Length of the skirt: Measure from the waist to the length where you want your skirt to be. Whether it is above the knee or below the knee length. Is up to you. 🙂

Fold the fabric to half, then fold half again.

img_2043

Measure and cut out the template, using mah-jong paper.

You will need at least 3 yard fabric, or maybe 1.5 yard. If you are not sure just ask advice from the stall seller.

img_2044

When you cut out and hold it up with the sides, it will look like this. As you can see a circle skirt can spin around nice and twirl.

img_2047

Next is the tricky part.

Cut the waistband size of your waist + 1 Inch or – 1 Inch. This part I get a bit confuse and I couldn’t figure out what length should I cut for my waistband. All I do is I guess the length and maybe try to figure out and cut a length of not too big and not too small. You can try it on your waist maybe loose 1 inch will be better. Cause when you sew, you will pull the waistband along so the waistband will stretch a bit.

To sew the waist area with the waistband. Fold about half Inch and then iron to make a mark line so that is easy to attach the Waistband.

For the waistband I choose a Knit ones.

But some fabric don’t really turn out well, some won’t stay on while you iron, so the best way is to use pin and mark it out

Pin the waistband to the skirt first before you start sewing. Cause if you don’t, it will be super hard to sew it neat and nice. I’ve tried before and I get frustrated when I sew out of line. Have to be very patient and confident.

Use a Zigzag Stitch with the width around 2.5 – 3.5 will be fine. Advise to use the same colour as the waistband so that is not obvious to see the line on the waistband.

Note: If you are using non stretch fabric, you have to pull the elastic slowly as you sew down the waistband. And if you are using stretch fabric, you don’t have to pull, just sew down as normal.

img_2193

img_2192

And Tadah!

I made a pink polka dot circle skirt! I really love it! Even though the length is a bit too long, I can adjust it and make it to the length I want to! This is the purpose of knowing how to sew or adjust your own clothes! Play around, practice as much as possible. Best is to try out on cheaper fabrics first. 🙂

Hope this help you!

Sewing Project: How to Sew a Simple Skirt with Elastic Waistband

SUMMER SALE

Hello everyone! I’m back! If you guys wonder why I took so long to my next post is because I have been busy sewing some skirt! It’s so much fun making skirt and I kind of love sewing more and more and more! To the maximum! haha!

Making skirt is not that easy thou but for beginners is good to keep practice with cheap fabrics instead of pricey ones. I’ve been figure out what are the fabrics good for making appeals and accessories. They are totally different. Like those stretchable ones is mainly use for making clothing. For like poplin cotton or 100% cotton printed is use to sew accessories like pouches etc. my favourites fabric type is cotton printed maybe poplin I guess! Still not very sure the names of the fabrics types, but when you went to fabrics stall defiantly get to see those with super nice printed fabrics! I bet you will really fall in love with it!

I finally done with my skirt after a few time failure,  I manage to make it thru my hard time. Whew!

lets see how easy to sew a skirt:

Step 1:

Align your fabric to a rectangular shape, you can either cut a long piece of fabric or cut in 2 separate pieces.

Measure the size of your waist.

E.g. Waist is 30″, So have to “times 2″ which is 60″. So is ” 30″x2=60″.

If you cut out one long piece is 60″, if you are cutting 2 separate pieces, 30″ each piece which gives you 60″ in total.

Sometimes is just Maths confusing. 🙂 But it’s okay! it’s take time to learn right? I made it thru! So can you 🙂 Just to take note Sewing need a lot of calculation maths. YA! I do hate math, So yup, no way you can avoid it. Just have to try 🙂

img_2070-3

Step 2:

So if you cut 2 separate piece, face the fabric right side to right side. Then sew down both sides. If you cut out 1 long piece of fabric, just have to sew down one side. How easy! Let’s move on to the next step!

img_2071-3

Step 3:

Once you sew down the sides, use an iron and iron flat the sides and that’s it! This is to make the skirt nicer and stable.

img_2072-3Step 4:

Next, let’s sew the top for the elastic casing. Which is to slot the elastic in place. This step is easy. No worries, we made it to the last few steps!

img_2073-3

If you not sure how wide you wan the elastic casing to be, use a ruler or measuring tape to measure about 1″.

For me, my elastic is 1″ wide as you can see from the picture below. So I will make the casing about 1.2″ or  more just a bit than the elastic should be okay.

img_2074-3

img_2075-3

Is up to you as long the elastic can go thru that will be fine.

img_2076-3

Cut the elastic longer, no worries you can trim it later if it’s too long.

Step 5:

Now, Let’s sew the casing! Use your sewing machine measurement guide to sew down the straight line on the casing. I’m using a straight stitch. Do a little bit of backstitch/Reverse on the starting point and ending point of the stitch. Remember to leave a hole to insert the elastic in later!

img_2077-2

You can always use needle to pin out first, to keep the alignment in place so when you sew it won’t go out of place 🙂

img_2078-3

Sew down and leave a hole for the elastic to go thru.

img_2079-3Step 6:

Done with the casing! Now the last step is insert the elastic.

Do take note there are many kind of Elastic band out there. But this skirt we are doing the elastic inside the casing, so choose a thin about 1″ should be fine. You can find lots of different material of elastic band, like woven Knit , canvas and many others. Just choose whichever you like and try it to make different skirts.

Use a safety pin to pull thru the elastic inside the fabric until the hole and pull out the elastic, sew to secure it. Then sew the hole in place.

Adjust the elastic to make it ever so it won’t crumble all together.

img_2080-3

You are almost done!

img_2081-3

Step 7:

The last step is to sew the bottom seam. Fold a 1 ” seam sew all the way. Do some backstitch and DONE!

img_2084-2

Tadah!!!! Congrats you made it! This is how easy to make a simple skirt.

Now it’s time to try on the skirt!

img_2085-3

img_2100-1

img_2099

I did a few as my practice until it’s perfect and I kind of like the result. Just Play around and now you can make a skirt for yourself! Awesome!

I bought this fabric from Spotlight, its cute Mickey mouse printed and its cotton. This result turn out to be a bit twirl. Means it can spin and twirl beautifully. 😀 it’s kind of pricey, but if you are still a beginner and just want to try out I suggest you get a cheaper fabrics first before you try a nice and better qualities ones. I did try a few of fabrics too. But a lot of times I failed to make a skirt that I want. So it’s kind of wasted after all. So do take my advice and think carefully what you really want to make first. 🙂

img_2037-1

This one I bought from Chinatown area, which is at the People’s Park Centre. Nearby the OG. There have mostly cheapest fabrics available. Around $6 per yard. Which is quite affordable 🙂

Sewing Project: Hand Sew a Zip Pouch / Wallet

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I’m wondering what project can sew for my next project, I came out an idea of sewing this small little wallet pouch. With easy and beautiful design fabric which I bought from my local retailer shop.

I’m Posting this post on How to sew a Zip wallet/Pouch. I just randomly did this and I will guide thru step by step.

Materials you need:

Needle & Thread

– pair of scissor

Zipper (cheap one will do, go ahead and use good one as your choice.)

Fabric of your choice

Ruler

Fold the fabric to 2 pieces, Cut fabric with size length 20cm, width 13cm. Same for fabric and lining.

Turn the fabric to the face from good side to good side and sew the side with straight or Mattress stitch. Only sew left and right side. Leave the top side for the zipper.

img_1005

 

img_1008

So when you turn back outside, it will look like this. With nice hem. This is why I love to use this stitch. (Picture shown on hand sew)

Same goes to the lining, sew 2 side.

img_1009

Once you’re done, Slot the lining in to the main fabric facing good side.

Align the zip to the fabric and sew on. You may use needle to mark the part that you want to sew, it’s makes it easier.

For the ending of the zip, you can sew it to the fabric from the inside. Try to adjust then sew to secure it.

And you’re done!

Came across one of my local shop that sells most of the crafts accessories, i found a leather label which can match my wallet. It’s turns out perfectly fit my wallet. I love this little label is a little girl with a little pet dog. bought it at $3.50. It’s very easy to put on, come with a small round pin for the 4 sides hole. Just have to mark out the position which you want it to put on the fabric. And you are done! One hand sew wallet with a label on it. Just like your own brand! This hand sew may not look nice but I will keep practice and at the same time I will post on how’s my progress going. Enjoy!

SPOTLIGHT

I realise there is only one and spotlight outlet in Singapore and it’s the biggest outlet. Of course they have more things, Spotlight not only sells crafts, they do have home accessories, home deco etc. I always go there to hut for nice printed fabrics. As compared to SIM HUI HENG , I would say Spotlight is a BEST place to hut for fabrics. They have the nicest fabric that I’ve found in Singapore.

But it would be a bit PRICEY for most of the fabrics. I feel is a good place to hut for all sort of fabrics. Sometimes it might left over not as much but do come back another time!

They also sewing accessories items, such as storage box for your accessories, Pre Cut fabrics too! Cutting Mat, Sewing machine also available. I think they do have demo for you too. Do check with the assistant person if you want to try or explore the machine with your own eyes. This place is like a heaven for crafters. Most of things you will sure find it here. So whenever you think of crafts materials, HERE! is where you have to go.

DAISO

Everybody knows that Daiso is one of the store which have everything just $2! Well, They don’t have much crafts items in store but! if you are looking for budget item, do check out Daiso first before you head down to any other store. Because there is something always worth just $2. I mean not as good quality but to test out those tools and get use to it first before you get a better ones, right? As for me is good because something things can be a lot of pricey, and when you come to something that you need, you will want it immediately or as soonest but when you find somewhere with cheaper price. You goanna hate the store. I have that feeling before and it’s really no good. Especially when you buy it and it won’t work for you. It will be a waste.  

They do have lots of useful items, like knitting needles, yarns but of cause not as good quality as spotlight. like I say, buy it for testing first. Not much for sewing but maybe needles should have, fabrics with just a few yards with cotton materials.

Different outlet might have different things add on. Do check out the biggest ones. It would be best.

Vivo City
