Welcome to Week 17 of the One Yard Wonders Sew Along!
Week 17– Project 40
Planner Sleeve – designed by Helen Ringrose page 111
8″ x 18″ piece of cotton batting
1 yard of 1/2″ double fold bias tape
Closure of choice: Velcro, 1 button, or 48″ length of ribbon
Sewing machine walking foot (optional)
Carrie’s Tips and Thoughts
- Simple to follow pattern and fun to make.
- Carrie made her own bias binding and used fusible fleece in place of cotton batting.
- She is going to use the Planner Sleeve to give a gift of handmade cards. Other possibilities include recipes, photos, kids drawings, sewing notions to name a few.
- This pattern would be easy to re-size and re-purpose. Create envelopes of any size by keeping your over all measurement divisible by 3. How about a cover for a Nook or I Pad? Make it tiny and use for gift cards. A food friendly lining and you have a reusable sandwich bag. The options are endless.
Wonder Under and rubber stamps make a great handmade card. Iron Wonder Under to your fabric, peal back and iron to card-stock, trim “package” to desired size. Stitch ribbon/bow on the package with your sewing machine. Attach to card with mounting tape. Rubber stamp your greeting and you have a beautiful card.
Week 17 – Project 41
Not-Ugly Car Trash Bag – designed by Jessica Vaughan page 113
One 1″ parachute buckle (sometimes called a quick release clip) such as Dritz #470
Cindy’s Tips and Thoughts
- The pattern was fast, easy to follow and understand.
- A “one hour” project. Good for beginners.
- Cindy didn’t make any changes.
- She made the bag to go in her daughters car for her boys.
Cindy said this Not-Ugly Trash Bag is much too cute for trash….maybe toys, coloring books and pencils, or diapers & wipes for the baby would be a great use for this fun project.
