Sharing the notes for week 1 - 4th - 10th July (Creating the outer piece, Picture 2, 4 & 4)
Please note that 0.7cm seam allowance has been added to the outer fabric pieces in the picture.
The author's suggestion is to add batting & fabric interfacing to the outer fabric. First layer, outer fabric, followed by batting (the thinner the better.. :) mine is < 1.5mm), then fabric interfacing (just a thin one will do). The thickness is my suggestion.. :) Not by the Author... in case I suggested wrongly, don't want to affect the author's reputation. :) Quilt as you like. :) Then cut the piece into the size of 11 cm (H) * 25 cm (W).
Actuall, you could do any type of patchwork to get the final outer fabric of size of 11 cm * 25 cm, so you can have fun using up your scraps.. :)
The pieces of scrap you like most should form the right side of the outer fabric, so that it will be facing you when the wallet is closed.
I didn't think about this earlier... and now the side I was planning as front will be at the back:
|Scrap from MyBotang|
I found if I follow the sizes of the pieces in the tutorial, some pieces are bigger than what we need... I memang kedukut.. :) So, I just made the pieces sewn together give me the final size about 1-2 cm bigger then 11 cm (H) x 25 cm (W). :) and I just added the pieces as I liked.. :)
Attach the button piece. The button piece could be made from fabric, no need to buy lather made if you don't have one.. :) If you are making the button piece from fabric, this can be attached later, but you will need to attach the snap on one side first.
|Snap location at 2.5 CM from right|
The fabric piece for the other side of the snap button is 5.5 CM * 7.5 CM. Fold into half (5.5CM into half), right side inside. Then sew the side seam, iron open the seam, place the open seam in middle and iron the 2 sides. Sew one end and turn right side out. Top stitch. Add the other side of snap. Keep this for later use.
