i began making my tea wallet today =)
i tried to make a point of taking pix at each step
on that note... here's the progress so far
first i chose my main fabric and fused a 5x7 cut of interfacing to it with the steam setting on my iron
then i cut 2 5x7 pieces each of both the fabrics i chose to use (1 of the pieces is the one i just fused to intefacing)
next i folded the pieces used for pockets in half and steam ironed them, then topstitched the FOLDED edge
i measured 1 inch from the bottom of the main interior fabric, pinned my first pocket, and sewed the bottom of the pocket to the main. i followed with the other pocket lined up with the bottom of the main fabric, pinned and sewed the bottom as well.
i then folded the whole interior in half and pressed the edge to line up the exact middle. i sewed the middle from the bottom of the interior to the top of the top pocket, following the line i had just ironed in.
i pinned a 6 inch cut of ribbon folded in half to the middle of the interior on the right side and sewed the ribbon on
last thing i did tonight is pin the interior and exterior right sides together
i re-threaded my bobbin and am ready to finish this, just not tonight =(
