The embroidery on the fabric for clutch just finished. What's up? What is the perfect way to sew a stylish and neat handbag? Just follow the user-friendly guidance below.
The Povitrulya kit includes:
- Workblank for front and back parts of clutch
- Fabric for backcloth
- Backcloth pattern
- Kiss lock
Besides, you will need:
- Corsage pins
- Marking and sewing needle
- Black threads
Step 1. If necessary, iron the opposite of the clutch embroidered part on a soft surface. Be very careful. The iron temperature should not be too high, set Synthetic Fabric mode. To be on safe side, try the iron temperature on a white piece of the workblank.
Scissor out along the black edge a workblank for front and back parts of clutch. Edging is optional.
Step 2. Copy the the seam dotted line to the opposite. Pin the two parts of your clutch face-to-face together along the bottom of the product from triangle to triangle (so as to keep them inside out). Take care when pinning together observing the seams fit the triangles on the parts. Sew up the parts as necessary. Proceed with sewing the parts together for good fastenning the threads off at the triangles. Rip up the tacking thread. Flatten the seams of your product and turn the workblank inside out.
Step 3. Take А3 sheet of paper (for instance, a newspaper). Scissor out the backcloth pattern. For that purpose, fold the sheet in half and attach the backcloth pattern so that the sheet bending and the 'kernel' side of the pattern would meet. Encircle the the pattern with a pencil. Scissor out along the pencil line steering clear of the 'kernel'. You have got a complete template for the backcloth. Continue with folding the fabric for the backcloth in half. Pin the pattern to it. Carefully encircle the pattern with dry and sharp piece of soap or tailor's chalk marking the spots labelled with triangle. Unpin the cut-out, scissor the backcloth out, allowing the inlays roughly within 0.3 to 0.4 inches. Since the fabric was folded in half, you have got two items. Sew them together along the chalk line from triangle to triangle across the bottom part fastening the thread off at the stitches tail.
Step 4. Insert the backcloth into the workpiece. With a due precaution starting from the middle turn in the inlays of the top of the workpiece and backcloth joining them together with pins. Make sure the stitches of the front and rear parts of the workpiece match the backcloth stitches. For that purpose, pin them right along the seam unfolding the inlays, each into its proper direction. Sew the workpiece top and backcloth together, and sew the workpiece top for good allowing a clearance of 0.5-1 inches from the edges.
Step 5. Insert the workpiece top into the kiss lock. Sew the kiss lock on with a coarse and strong thread matching the workpiece colouration. We suggest a black thread. First stitch is to be made at the middle of the kiss lock starting from the inside out. Sew on with a simple running stitch. Having arrived at the end of the kiss lock half and at the workpiece seam, turn back and stitch on up to the middle again covering the gaps between the kiss lock holes with the same running stitches.
Stitch along both halves of the clutch.
There you are! Your clutch is ready to use! Enjoy the nice and stylish part of your outfit!
