Triangle Pencil Case Tutorial


Have to told you i’m addicted to making pencil cases at the moment? It could be because i find it very relaxing to colour in using glitter gel pens. I made myself a new pencil case for all of my pens last week using the Kindle case tutorial and resizing it down slightly. It fits so many pens that i may have bought more of them… I wanted to make some cute cases for friends and to sell in my store. These are so cute i needed to give you a tutorial!

How to use Lorelei Jayne PDF Patterns.

How to print PDF patterns

I’ve had a few questions about how to use my PDF Patterns especially as the free tutorials don’t really explain how to put the pattern together. It’s super simple! First printing. It’s really important you get this right otherwise your project may not be the right size! Your printing settings should be 100% or actual size. If you have Auto rotate or auto portrait/landscape you should put that on too. You should ensure you put in the correct paper size, in adobe you click page setup to select paper size. Print just the pattern pages you need to save ink. Most of […]

How to make foam Stabiliser fusible

Making Foam fusible

I’m starting a how to series, it will include basic sewing instructions and specific bag making instructions. I wanted to start with this one as Vilene sent me a sample of their newest product Style-vil. It’s a great new sew in foam. I haven’t used a lot of foams however i did use one for The Luna bag pattern. I wish i had Style-vil back then! I use Vilene products a lot, mostly fusible vilene H 630 and H 640 for bags. I use them because they are easily available in Australia and inexpensive. I’m always impressed with the results. […]
