How to make a tie/wrap roll-bag brush/tool-holder thingy !
We sure don’t know what to call it but this ‘tie/wrap roll-bag brush/tool-holder thingy’ is very practical and very pretty !
If you are reading this blog in August 2017 head over to TheStitcheryLewes on Facebook for a chance to win this actual wrap roll for a friend and the-S box August 2017)
We made the denim roll wrap to celebrate the-s box August 2017 which we’ve called Sugar Candy Denim.
the s-box August 2017 is available here in a pink or a blue option and we used product from this gorgeous box of crafting loveliness to create this very desirable crafty thingy!
If you want to have a go at making this brush/tool wrap-it’s simple!
Gather your materials…you’ll need an outer and inner fabric; they could co-ordinate or clash- it’s up to you!
also bias binding for the edges, webbing for the central holding tape, bondaweb and fabric scraps for optional appliqué, ribbon to tie up the whole thing, thread of course (and optional wadding)
For the outer fabric,
we used half of one piece of denim from the-s box August 2017
and one piece of gingham for the lining
First, cut a strip of fabric approx 75cms long and 20cms wide, this is for the outer fabric
The width you choose really depends on the size of what you are putting inside the wrap. Decide depth of pocket and make sure you cut the fabric long enough to include the pocket.
Now cut the gingham lining the same size as the outer denim
(we added wadding in-between, but you don’t have too)
Now cut off the corners at one end
If you want appliqué now is the time to do it
cut fabric, cut bondaweb, press bondaweb to wrong side of fabric
decide position, peel off backing and press, machine
now pin and baste
though all layers of fabric, optional wadding and lining to hold into position
now machine quilt
we used a long machine stitch
and machined simple parallel lines
now pin and machine a centre tape
to hold the brushes or tools in position
now join bias binding to pocket edge
pin bias (right sides facing) to outer denim side
turn bias to lining side and hand sew into place
Now fold up the pocket and pin into position. When you join the bias binding to the rest of roll in one continuous piece, the pocket edges will be bound up together to form the pocket
this bias binding is hand finished by picking up every machine stitch from the first joining line of machining.
bias binding can be machined finish
for more a detailed bias binding tutorial have a look here at one of our very early blogs
finish with gingham ribbon
attached at the back
and tied in a bow
we added a practical s hook to hang up the roll when open and in use
so there it is – what will you use yours for?
