And I made that wool tartan dress in the Hipsew magazine. No photo's yet!!
So on with the Sewing table tidy....where was I up to...So far the pin cushion, the two small utensil pockets, the larger waste fibres pocket and the base fabric have been made.
On to the last large pocket. This is large enough to fit a patterns instructions or pattern pieces in. It also adds balance!
Waste pocket piece.
Two small pockets.
Large back pocket.
Lay the above fabric pieces onto the interfacing and cut out.
Then, making sure glue side is facing fabric and a cloth to protect your iron, apply heat to fix.
(You could do the same to the long base fabric, I did'nt and there's been no problems with pocket stress so far!)
The Lining and the Interlining
These are the pieces of fabric that makes everything O.K!
All the pieces, except the felt pin cushion, need to have a lining piece and an interlining piece the same size.
Pin pieces onto lining fabric all lined up with the edge of the fabric. (Selvedge edge and grain).
Complete as for lining.
Place lining down first with right side facing up.
On top of this put patchwork fabric with right side facing the lining.
Lastly put the calico interlining on top of patchwork fabric.
Sew all together using a 6mm seam allowance.
Leave an unsewn space so the section can be turned the right way round.
As you can see in the photo I have trimmed all the allowances, calico being the smallest.
Turn right side out tuck in unsewn bit and press as flat as you can get it.
So the next set of steps will be putting it all together.
By the way please don't worry if you do not get exact sizes as I've written, it'll still work, I promise!!!
You know if you are making this please drop me a line...can you post photo's...or better yet msg me at:

Bye for now,
(don't forget to say hello if you drop bye!)
