One Yard Projects Got scraps?
How about those cool-looking fabric One yard sewing projects you find on the bargain table -- not enough for a full garment, but perhaps a yard or so left on the roll? There are tons of things you can do with a yard or less of fabric! Here's a list of fun and useful projects you can try!
I had wanted to make a placemat totebag -- take two placemats, sew together, add straps -- and voila, a totebag! Was in a kitchen store and finally found just the right placemat! Bright colors, nice pattern -- just what I wanted. Picked them up, showed it to my wife and explained how I was going to make a placemat totebag we do a lot of beach trips, so always need more tote bags.
She though it was a good idea, but said "But that's a dish towel, not a placemat. Darned if it wasn't a dish towel, after all! Okay, I can salvage this. My original plan of sewing two "mats" together wasn't going to work -- dish towels aren't as stiff as placemats, so I'll have to use just one towel and reduce the size.
The towel already has finished edges -- and I wanted to keep these. So -- I folded the towel in half -- that puts the finished edges on the sides. And the problem now -- is that that the pattern is upside down on one side after folding!
Alright, I can fix this. This means my already finished edges on the top of the bag are now at the bottom of the bag-- meaning I'll have to hem the top. I guess that's better than having upside-down flowers on my tote bag, though. So -- quick and dirty -- I sewed a double-roll hem along the cut sides along the "top" parts of the bag.
I used red thread because I thought it stood out a little and looked nice. Here are my two pieces after the hemming. Ready for the next step -- I matched the good sides of the bag and sewed the bag together on three sides. Note how the bottom seam has a little greater seam allowance -- this is because the "bottom" of the bag was the original "top" -- and it had the store-bought finished seams.
They were kind of thick -- rather than try to fold them, it was easier just to sew just above them. Next part's pretty easy -- turn the bag right-side out and attach the straps. I used some 1-inch webbing.
I wanted the straps a little long since I envisioned hanging the bag off our shoulders rather than holding it in our hands.Fashion Sewing Club is a monthly meeting featuring garments, pattern modification and review, and the latest news in the sewing world.
