A capacious cosmetic bag, sewn in techniquepatchwork - a simple option for needlewomen, which does not require much effort and experience. The proposed model, authored by Polina Kuts, will be an excellent way to get acquainted with this unique technique of tailoring products and, at the same time, to please yourself or your loved ones with a unique beautiful and useful thing. In an interesting ancient style of needlework - the technique of patchwork sewing, you can sew almost any thing, any product. This is not only objects of the exterior and interior, which serve as decoration of the room and are practical and multifunctional, but also clothing and accessories. The needleworkers from all over the world pay special attention to the patchwork technique. In our country this technique has been familiar to us since the days of our great-grandmothers and grandmothers. Despite such a great history of the development of patchwork sewing, it is no less actual now, and it is unlikely to ever lose its popularity. Today we will try to make a capacious cosmetic bag, sewn in the technique of patchwork sewing. To start working on this wonderful accessory, we need to prepare the materials necessary for its creation. We will need:
- the length of the main tissue is 40 by 30 centimeters;
- The length of non-woven fabric is the same size as the base fabric;
- A piece of fabric for a lining of similar size;
- multicolored patches (strips), the size of which is forty centimeters by four and a half centimeters, will need five pieces;
- two fabric strips eighteen centimeters by four centimeters, which will be needed for stitching (processing) the seams in the inner part of the product;
- zipper for fastening, preferably long, from forty centimeters and more, this zipper is always sewn into the product more conveniently;
- Threads that match the color of the product.
The author specifies the dimensions of the parts taking into accountallowances necessary for the seams (one centimeter), so in addition to them it is not necessary to add additional centimeters. During work, the author of this model applied three types of machine stitches: a three-jaw zigzag, necessary for sewing each shred to the base, a regular triple stitch, a zigzag used to create a decorative seam, a triple. The initial action is grindingmulti-colored stripes (five pieces) put together along their length. To do this, you need to alternately apply one to the other side of each of the strips and spend them, retreating one centimeter from the edge. After grinding, carefully iron itthe resulting seams in the sides. The side strips on the wrong side should be ironed and allowances, one centimeter from each side of the block. As a result of the work done, you will get a block whose width will be equal to twelve and a half centimeters. Each strip in the block will have a width of two and a half centimeters. Now you need to sew a block of colored scraps tobasis (a piece of the main accessory fabric). First, the main fabric is to be joined to a piece of non-woven fabric of the same size as the reverse side. We need to attach a block of colored strips to the middle of the base. We will do this by means of sewing pins. Sew a block of patches with a seam used for decorative stitches. The author of the cosmetic model used a knitted triple zigzag. All the seams are laid along the top of the strips (their boundaries). To prevent deformation of the tissue, startSpread from the middle flap, moving away from it. The edges of the patchwork block will be sewn with a triple stitch. We get exactly the same detail as in the photo. At the next stage of the work we need to sewthe zipper. Pins attach one part of the zipper to the base. Both its ends must go beyond the future of the product, as shown in the photo. Subsequently, unnecessary parts of it will simply be cut with scissors. At the same time, we fix the fabric intended for lining. The front side should be facing the wrong side of the zipper. We spend on the machine all the layers of the product (base, lining and zipper). All this must be done very carefully. You can simplify the task somewhat. First, sew the base with a zipper, and then attach the lining material. The result is a design, as in the photo. Stitches between zippers and layers of tissues need to be strippedwith the help of an iron. There is one more point. It is advisable to make a stitching closer to the fabric of the lining, so that it does not get into the lock when fastening the zipper while using the cosmetic bag. Similar actions need to be carried out from the secondpart of the lightning. It is important that both parts of the lightning coincide. Therefore, to avoid mistakes, you can initially pin the zipper in a buttoned position, and then unbutton and sew. We make a line, smooth out all the seams, lay another additional line on the lining. This will be a cylinder. Now unfasten the zipper. On both sides of it we will lay decorative lines. They must pass through all layers of the product. This line performs two functions at once: decorative and fixing, fastening layers of cloth between themselves and relatively fasteners. The result is an excellent appearance and no slip effect. Although these lines are not mandatory,it is better, after all, to make them. Beautician need to make a bottom. We turn the received design to the wrong side and fold the cosmetic bag so that its upper edge is slightly higher than the lightning itself. The fold should be fixed using the sewing pins. Let's get this type of workpiece. From below we make a fold, which must be absolutely symmetrical. With the help of pins, we fix both folds and side seams. The zipper needs to be unbuttoned to half, otherwise we will not be able to unscrew the product. And make lines on the sides (one centimeter retreats to the allowance). This is the result of such a construction. It remains to make the final processing of the seamslateral ones. It's time to use the cloths prepared at the very beginning - the obtachki. Initially, measure the resulting height of the product and add two centimeters (allowance). It turns out the length of the strip is seventeen and a half centimeters with its width of four centimeters. First, we press one centimeter from the end,further - one centimeter along the length of the strips. After that, add them along in half and iron. We got a fold. The result of the actions are the obtachki in the number of two pieces with the dimensions of one centimeter in width and fifteen and a half centimeters in length. On the cosmetic bag we cut off the extra ends of the zipper, level the side seams and fix them on the seams with the help of the sewing pins of the obtack on both sides. We gently patch the obtacks to the product itself. It remains only to unscrew the cosmetic bag througha zipper that we left half-detached, and iron the seams on the sides of the product. A spacious cosmetic bag, sewn in the technique of patchwork sewing, is ready for use.
