Fast last minute gift
These were made up as quick gifts. The tweed is hardwearing so there is no need to line it.
Select the size and pattern of tweed that you want to use. Make the edges straight using pinking shears.
Fold almost in half but with the back around an inch longer. This should be done with the right side facing out. Sew together with a sewing machine.
Fold the flap over the front and press with an iron. Round off and neaten the edges.
Sew a press stud or piece of Velcro as a closer. The tweed is thick enough that the sewing shouldn't show through.
Do blanket stitch round the entire edge to prevent catching and fraying. This can be done in a contracting or complimentary colour.
