The latest trends of fashion returned us products,made of cloth flaps. Patchwork was again the peak of its popularity. It is useful to all fans of making original items with their own hands. In this article, we will dwell in detail on the manufacture of blankets in patchwork technique, as well as on the decor of an old chest with the help of cloth. Decorative blanket For this job, you need to prepare a largethe number of flaps of cotton cloth (and the more diverse the color gamut is, the better), the sewing machine, a piece of soap or something like that to mark up, and other tools that may be needed when working with a cloth. To begin with, you need to prepare the fabric pieces with dimensions of 5 by 5 cm. One of them is to lay out one large square. As a result, a quadrilateral with one side consisting of light tissue squares should turn out, and from the second one a dark one. Do this work by sewing squares together into long strips. Allowances for seams should be smoothed in one direction. If you use a cotton for work, do not touch the allowances. Now you need to join the strips and sew one square out of them. Ideal is the option, when the quadrilateral will consist of 25 pieces. In the end, you should get 48 similar squares. They will make up the decorative part of the veil. Now lay out one of the available squares, one big, trying to find a more original combination of all colors and patterns. Next, proceed to fabricate the fabric lining and pattern the sintepon filler. The size should be about 7 cm more than the decorative side. When all three parts are ready, they should be sewn together. You need to start this work from the middle. When all the details are sewn together, cut off the excess from the lining and the sintepon. Cut the edges with a cant. In the case of making a summer cover, a layer of sintepon will be superfluous. Decoration of an old chest in patchwork technique Prepare two pieces of cloth that fit togetherwith a friend in texture and color, PVA, paintbrush (the wider, the better), ruler and scissors. First you need to measure those parts of the chest that you want to decorate. Cut out the appropriate parts from the fabric, leaving the same allowances on each side (1 cm from each side will be enough). In order to decorate the front panels of boxes, remove them, glue with glue and apply a cloth. In order not to form air bubbles, you need to glue the second layer of glue over the fabric. After the glue has dried, the entire surface will become glossy. In the same way, glue and the side surfaces. But for the countertop, you should choose another material, the color of the contrast to the first. Now proceed to decorating the legs. Select the parts that are similar in size to the legs and cover them. If the work turned out not very accurate, in addition decorate the legs with lace, ribbons or braid. When everything is dry, screw the knobs into place.
