妈妈的星期天礼品

今天是妈妈的星期天在英国,所以我做了一对夫妇的礼物妈妈,我希望她会喜欢。

首先是一个钱包。我在做了妈妈一个钱包先去没有去那么好。However, I thought I could see how to fix what had gone awry, so I took a seam ripper to the failed attempt and rescued the zipped pockets, card pockets and magnetic snaps (important because I didn’t have any more suitable zips and no time to get replacements!). The first thing I did was to trim down the card pockets so that the total depth was much less, making the purse a bit more elegant. I also took about 1/4” off each side (after checking the width with a card), since I wasn’t planning to turn through and therefore didn’t need to allow for the seam bulk.

我重新做了衬里和外罩(幸运的是,新的面料,我选择了去外真的很好用红色的里衬面料!):

我使用了一些更坚实的接口外覆盖层(也许有点太硬,但它的问世OK)和中型公司为接口的衬里。整个事情现在持有其形状非常好。

我真的很高兴bob体育冠军,我已经加入到以前版本的外部拉链口袋,但并没有大惊小怪对比度条,所以我刚才添加的外口袋,没有任何多余的装饰:

幸运的是再次,金色拉链与新面料我买去好!由于钱包的深度减小的,我所做的外口袋较浅为好,但它仍然是相当宽敞。

内部口袋多和以前一样,但他们坐在现在好多了,他们并不都是扭曲的形状了!

仍然有很多的空间,有希望!

为了完成它,我做了一些偏差,从遗留的里衬面料结合(不是全愉快的任务,我不得不说),并且在层烤炙一起后,添加周围的钱包绑定的所有道路。机器绑定,唉,这是我到现在还是没在非常良好。事情去努力,肯定。

我做的下一件事是不是真的打算的话,那只是一种......发生了!I had a whole bunch of 1-1/2” squares in yellow, cream and purple left over from a couple of different projects and I had my postage stamp template out because I’d just been using it for something else, so I started to arrange the squares on it with the purple in one corner, the yellow in the opposite corner and the cream between:

它必须已经注定要工作,因为我只需要切两个额外的方格使一个完整的10×10的布局!Once I’d made the postage stamp patch, it told me it wanted to become a cushion, so I rootled out some more of the cream fabric from the scrap box, added borders to bring it up to a sensible size (16” square), and quilted it with simple diagonal lines. To add a bit of a twist, the quilting is partly yellow and partly purple, to match the respective corners:

这是我很快乐的事情的影响。一些简单的绗缝线周围的边框镜框,并从一些废品箱布一个不错的信封回来,我惊讶的靠垫是完了!

妈妈似乎很高兴与她的礼物,所以这是一种解脱!这是很店内提供您分享房子,谁不真正了解隐私概念的人是一个挑战......

如何不使一个钱包

母亲节的地平线上出现,我知道妈妈可以用一个新的钱包和手机的情况下做的。后我最近的实验用铁乙烯基,我认为这将是它的一个很好的实际应用。我因为缺少这方面的进展镜头道歉;我主要是摸索着我的方式,通过这一个,忘了我在试图找出我在任何时候做什么废话一般炖相机。

一些四处翻找上interwebs后,我发现一对夫妇,看上去好像他们可能会导致一些母亲想使用教程(当然,一个是引用他人)的。然而,无论是特别写清楚,并在后期阶段我遇到了一些明确的问题,这几乎可以肯定是由我修改变得更糟一般的设计,但我认为他们无论如何都会造成问题。

我松散跟着教程这里这里。The initial stages of creating the card pockets and adding interfacing and vinyl to the outer layer went pretty smoothly, once I’d made a decision to convert all measurements (mostly) to inches – don’t get me wrong, I love me an SI unit, but not when all my quilting rulers are in imperial! However, I could only get hold of some mid-weight woven iron-on interfacing at the local shop, and I don’t think it has the firmness I was looking for. It’s odd stuff, I think it could be good for some things but it doesn’t work well here, unfortunately. I reckon even fusible wadding might have been a better bet.

我喜欢加入瓣的想法,但不喜欢用发带的想法,所以我决定用一个挡板加上磁扣(我周围安装了错误的方式,因为我有时被相当疯狂地)。Initially I wasn’t going to bother with the patchy strip on the outside, but then decided that the outside really needed another pocket and realised that it was also going to be too short for a decent flap if I didn’t, so I used an unpieced strip of a contrasting fabric and added in a small lined pocket. That’s a bit I’m pretty pleased with, actually. The zip isn’t quite a concealed zip (I think it’s the wrong kind for that), but I’m quite happy with how the whole thing worked in the end.

我也不喜欢原来的教程没有理会行内部拉链口袋,所以我安排了一个适当的衬里矿,相匹配的钱包和外拉链口袋的衬里。

同样,我很高兴,怎么说出来的一般概念。你可以藏匿零钱很多在那里!我在另一组卡袋背后的额外分离皮瓣加入充当之间......什么的,真是一个分频器。注释和收据,也许?

那么,什么地方出了错?

那么,问题的一部分是,我离开了卡位的深度。I used a WOF strip cut it in half to make the two card holder strips, and measured the pockets (in cm) from one end as described in the tutorial because for this it didn’t much matter whether I used inches or cm as long as the pocket width matched the purse width. There was only a slight excess of fabric after all the pockets had been marked and folded, which I trimmed back to meet the shorter end, but the overall depth of the card pocket sections still seemed pretty deep – too deep, really.

我大概只能修剪他们回来约1“,他们将被罚款。我想原来的教程并没有这样做,因为他们增加了在多余的布料磁力扣?也许?

无论如何,该深度使得这个“钱包”开始看起来更像是迷你手提包 - 这是巨大的!而且即使加入外盖的额外条,外仍然想出了看起来有点短。所以,不是真棒。而这之前,我试图让一个尖瓣,其并没有真正走出来,因为我想,因为没有确实够面料。整个事情也感觉很软,甚至与外盖的乙烯。这真的,真的需要一个更稳固的接口。

最后,还有的办法外,内衬和袋连接在一起。在该教程,口袋被涂上油到衬里,则衬垫+口袋和外置于右侧在一起,接缝缝合周围的边缘与用于转动通过的间隙。那么整个事情被打开过,按下和topstitched缩小差距,让所有重要的成品外观和感觉(原教程只面线导通的差距,但我的感觉是,整个钱包需要它,真)。精细...但是。在卡夹持器的口袋的褶皱产生散装的LOT即使当只有一个层,用无外/衬里和没有拉链抗衡。

缝合的接缝,然后通过转动产生织物的一个已经矮胖厚度的两倍的厚度;即使是百福在绝望和厌恶投掷了其手中时,通过大量的要求缝制顶部针迹,我不怪了!而明缝失败使乙烯的乱七八糟了。

最后,通过一个小的差距转弯乙烯基覆盖的织物产生了一些真难看的折痕,这只是不是你想炫耀给任何人的东西。的Bleh。此外,呸。不要这样做。

A much better method (and one I might have used if I’d bothered to engage brain) would be to place the outer and liner wrong sides together after basting the pockets to the lining and go around them with some bias binding in a complementary colour; you would avoid massive excesses of seam bulk and zips and the finish on the outer layer would not end up creased to hell and back. This would also avoid the distortion of the lining and interior pockets caused partly by the big fat chunky seams.

总之,我已经浪费了一天的缝纫和一些不错的材料,发现这绝对不是一个好方法,使一个钱包!但是,一直以来的教育和学习新的东西很少是一件坏事。或者说,我告诉我自己!:p I think it may still be possible to salvage something from this mess (I would be sorry to lose all my efforts on the card holders and zipped pockets), and I still need a Mother’s Day gift for Sunday, so I will be unpicking some of this to reuse in a more effective item. More to come soon, I hope!
