Thanks! The cat material is fun. It was a surprise find in my stash. I had quite a bit, so I'm sure the kitties will be making a second appearance somewhere.
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Professional Tips: Preparing patterns and Tracing on: November 12, 2012 05:28:26 AM
I've got several bought clothing patterns that are next on my list of items to make. I have followed patterns to make clothing before, but I'm looking to get more professional results this time around. 

I'd like to know if anyone knows of a great tute explaining the detail on how to use bought patterns or clothing sewing.

Specifically, I'll be starting with pattern preparation, cutting the pattern out, tracing the pattern and cutting material. In the past I've sewn some pretty basic Easy to Sew patterns, but did not learn the little specifics that might be obvious to more experienced seamstresses.  Any pointers, advice, or sites you can point me to. I'd like to learn the "right" way.

I wanted to make a messenger style knitting bag that had pockets just for needles.  I seem to bust needles all the time when they are down in the main part of the bag.  I found one to buy, but thought I could do something similar.  I also wanted to try a new-to-me technique: welted pocket.  After finding lots of online tutorials and one in a book I have, I attempted the pocket. I never did find a great tute with lots of photos though.  I roughly drafted some dimensions and then went to work cutting (and sometimes re-cutting.)

Outside of Bag.

Welted pocket and close up. The "welted pocket" flap uses an eye and hook to attach to the bag.

Open the welted pocket flap to reveal needle storage.

Looking down into the bag.  There is also an interior pocket which I did not get a picture of.

ETA: comments and crits welcome - I'm working on getting my sewing skill improved.

That is super cute! A mug cozy has been on my list for a while. It looks like your knitting skills are fully in tact!

I haven't made a quilt in forever, but I have pinned this as something I'd love.

This bag is really cute!  I love your fabric choices!

Thanks! This is for a swap in another group and my swapee loves skulls. The inside is bright pink.

I can't wait to be able to swap here!
