Many of our readers love their garden and everyone knows how heavy hand tools are transported during gardening. We have found a solution and it is called a tool role. So everything arrives safely and well packed where it’s supposed to go. Here are the DIY instructions for tool roll sewing:
Fabric, preferably cotton (55 x 150 cm)
Outside – 42 x 47cm
Inside 42 x 47cm
Binding tape 92 x 3 cm
The upper hem for the inside pocket – on the outside of the rectangle, turn 1 cm to the left on one of the narrow sides. Then flip up the envelope with the hem right to right. Now put the rectangle for the inside again right to right. Then topstitch all around, leaving an opening at the top edge open. Close the opening by hand. For the inside pockets, stitch a seam from the outsides with a 13.5 distance on the cover. Mark this seam with the tailor’s chalk and insert the envelope with pins there. This is how a straight seam succeeds. Then stitch the tie. The open ends also turn inwards and stitch the binding band all around. Now quilt the outer edge. This completes your tool roll!
Make your own accessories: Sew mobile phone case
If you’re looking for sewing instructions for beginners, you’ll always end up sewing on a cell phone pocket. Easy to do and the result – cool work of art! All you need for this sewing project is a sewing machine, the desired fabric, scissors, yarn, rubber band and pins. As a beginner, we sew our phone case with an outer fabric. Let’s go:
1. Knot the rubber band and on the right side of the outer fabric at the top of the seam allowance stitch in the middle. Fold the woven ribbon and stitch on the left edge in the center of the seam allowance
2 , Place both fabrics right to right and secure with needles.
3. Sew across the two short edges of the foot. At the point where the rubber band is located, sew over it several times, so that it later really sits firmly and can not tear.
4. Fold so that the two seams are centered exactly on each other.
5. Sew both long edges a foot apart. Leave a 5-6 cm opening on the side of the inside pocket. Then cut back corners, but do not come too close to the seam.
6.Then iron and ready!
