It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the parts need to be cut out with allowances on the seams from all sides. First of all, you need to sew triangles of light tones with dark ones. After that, you get two-colored squares. Further, these square blanks are stitched together. In this case, it is desirable to immediately open the seams. After two squares are sewn, rectangular blocks are obtained. They also need to be connected The next task is to sew patchwork parts with a rectangle measuring 12x4 centimeters, not counting the allowances for seams.

Now there will be several layers, namely three. The top of the product is a patchwork pattern, then a synthon gasket and a backing layer. Now you need to quilt these layers. Each short slice needs to be processed using a skew-beam. Now lightning is sewn. A pair of square blanks 4x4 centimeters are cut out, bent twice and stitched. Next on the turn is a clasp. Scatter two more squares of their fabric 4x4 cm, fold in half and sewn. Lightning is sewn to one short side with a sewing machine, and to the other with hands. After the work done, this is an incomplete product. Now we need to work on the side elementspencil case. To do this, you need to cut three rectangular blanks. The size of these should be such that, after the stitching on a rectangular "sandwich", circles are placed, in an amount of 2 pieces, having a radius of 4 centimeters. As a result, we have two round details having a diameter of 8 centimeters. On each side of the pencil pins are pricked with the help of tailoring pins and hand-grinded. With the aid of an oblique bake, an open cut is processed on each side. Now we can confidently say that the first exam for the ownership of the Japanese patchwork technique was handed over.
