Want to print your own pictures on fabric?
Do you have a inktjet printer?
And you want to make a cute little pouch?
Just follow the instructions below.
Please fav. if you like!
Spray a piece of printerpaper with glue-spray. Let dry for a while.
Stick it on a piece of white fabric (cotton).
Cut off the excess fabric.
(You don't want to get the frayes into your printer.)
Put the paper/fabric thingy in the papersection of your printer.
Print your picture/pattern on the setting 'normal paper'.
Print it as big as you can on the fabric. Because the pouch will get quite small.
Let the fabric dry a while after printing.
This step only works with a inktjet printer. A laser printer won't work.
Cut of the white borders on each side. And cut the fabric in half. Make sure you have two rectangular pieces of the same size.
Gather your materials.
Fold over half a inch of fabric on the long side. Use a iron to flatten the fabric or just use tape to hold it down (when you're just as lazy as me).
Sew both pieces to the zipper. With the right side up.
Using a longer zipper than necessary is easier to sew. You can trim it off later.
Now fold the two side together with the right sides facing each other.
Sew the bottom together.
Make sure the bottom seam is right on top of the zipper.
Sew the sides together.
Go a bit slower when you are sewing over the zipper.
Do the same on the other side, but make sure the zipper pull is in the middle!
Else you have to unpick your fresh seams. =P
Trim of the excess sides of the zipper.
Now fold the corners in a way I can't explain in proper English (I'm from the Netherlands xD). But I think the picture will explain.
Try to get all the corners even. Use a pencil to mark them and a pin to hold in place.
Almost done now!
Sew the lines you've drawn for the corners.
Snip the excess material and cover your seams and frays with clear nailpolish, so they don't fray any further
Turn in side out (or out side in if you think that is better) and marvel at your new pouch!
