52  Luxury lipbalm *with picture* in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by BDDesigns on: October 08, 2007 06:02:21 AM
I made this lipbalm yesterday, it's very eatable. I bought this cups (stone pillboxes) in a set, one heart and one round , they cost me 1 euro =1dollar each. I filled just one, to try it for my self.
The lipbalm smells and tastes like cinnamon and vanilla

54  Mini wallet called "I'm from Holland" Tutorial added in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BDDesigns on: September 02, 2007 06:39:20 AM
So here it is, my first creation. I made this on my mothers sewing machine, I'll have my one for my birthday. (December Shocked)

I love this fabric, it's called "Delft's blauw" translation: "Delfts blue".
In holland, you have here lots of pottery, cups, little souvenirs etc. with this print.

this is my first, but i'm sure not the last creation. I'll make more when i have my own machine




tutorial (sorry if my english is bad, i'm from holland  Wink)

First cut of all the pieces out of paper use a credit card for the size. Pay attention on the fact that there must be any space for a couple of seams. then cut the peaces out the fabric


Iron on the inside of your front some interfacing.
then the flap, i colored it yellow. Fold it double right side in. and sew it around. Attend, you will keep an opening to turn it inside out.
Turn it inside out. push with an pencil the corners out. Fold the opening inside and iron it flatten.
Then sew it around and your flap will be ready to stitch on


Sew anything you want one the front site of your wallet. Like lace, or this cute ladybird

Iron the top of each pocket and then sew it

Then the locker (i called so, its the thing where you'll close the wallet with)
Iron some interfacing on it, fold it double ( outside in) and stitch it around, Attend on the opening so you can fold it inside out. Put in the opening and iron the opening so it will flatten and sew it around and your locker is ready to stitch on


Sew your flap on the inside of your wallet. Attend on the height, your pocket must fit under it
Sew it on wit a oblong and an cross


Lay every pocket on the place where you want to. Sew it firmly on the side. Now all your pockets stuck on the inside of your wallet


The locker, sew it on with an square and an cross. Attend of the right length it must be fit on the front side


10, 11 Now your front and inside are ready to sew to eachother. Lay them on eachother with the right side in. Then sew it. Attend for an opening to turn your wallet inside out.

12 Turn it inside out and pull with a pencil the corners out. Iron your wallet and opening so it will flatten

13 Sew it around so your opening will be gone


Congratulations, your wallet has almost done. Only the buttons yet. Make sure that you place them on the right place

Can't wait to see your creations of my tutorial
