|My Crafty Cosmetics Caddy PDF Pattern & Tutorial...|
So before I go any further, I would like to pass along my thanks to those who have shown their support by actually purchasing my pattern. From the bottom of my heart, I feel humbled by this whole process. :-)
Fabric & Interfacing RequirementsAll you need are four rectangular pieces of fabric, some interfacing and some thread... easy!
Cut two pieces of fabric measuring 13" x 12" for the main body exterior and interior lining. Cut two other pieces of fabric measuring 7" x 10" for two sets of pockets, one for the exterior and one for the interior. (As you may have noticed, I used the same fabrics as I did for my iPod/Mp3 carrying case a few weeks back.)
Depending on your choice of fabric, apply fusible interfacing as needed (to exterior or lining or both).
Sewing InstructionsFold one of the pocket pieces in half lengthwise (right sides together) and pin. Sew around the open edges, leaving a turning gap in the middle of the long side. Clip corners and turn right side out; press well.
Repeat with the other pocket piece.
Fold the exterior fabric piece in half lengthwise (right sides together) and press. Open it up to expose the right side of the fabric.
Tuck the two ends of the pocket piece under by 3/8" and pin.
Sew all the way around the sides and bottom of the pocket to secure. Divide as desired.
Repeat the process with the lining and the remaining pocket piece.
Take your exterior piece and re-fold it as before. Sew the two short ends together with a 1/4" seam allowance.
Make a 3" box corner at each end. Clip excess fabric away from the corners when done.
Finger press the two long sides of the base to form a rectangular bottom. Edgestitch along these sides (as shown below) to provide some structure for the base of the unit.
Assembly InstructionsTurn your exterior piece right side out.
Press a 1/2" seam allowance along the top edge of both your exterior and lining pieces.
Drop the lining into the exterior piece, making sure the pockets are facing the way you want. Line up the top seams and secure with pins or clips, using the two side seams as your guide. Sew together as close to the edge as you can.
And that's it... your Crafty Cosmetics Caddy is ready to be crammed full of stuff!
