Moths to Open Flames Pencil Case Instructions
|This is the instructions for making my Moths to Open Flames kit into a finished pencil pouch.|
1 fat quarter of Moths to Open Flames fabric
1 zipper approximately 10" or 25cm
Hand sewing needle
|Cut out all five pieces being sure to leave the white borders (seam allowance) attached.|
|Place the zipper right side up on top of one of your lining pieces that is also right side up. |
Pin them together and sew as close to the center of the zipper as you can.
|Do the same with the other side being sure to flip the other side back. |
The lining pieces should be facing each other with right sides together.
When you're finished, it should look like the picture above.
|Flip just the outer piece back over the top, and flip the lining layers underneath it.|
|Align the top edges like before. The outer fabric should be folded over itself with right sides facing..|
|Pin and sew again. Then reach into the tube created by the outer fabric, and unzip the zipper.|
|Flip the outer piece one way, and the lining the other way. Pin the open edges matching up lining to lining and outer to outer. The center line is marked in the seam allowance of the outer piece to help keep it even.|
|Pin the center seams in the same direction|
|Use a ladder stitch to close the hole left in the lining,|
|And here's the finished bag!|
