This amazing project, together with the instructions, was contributer by Sari Tolfmark. Sari, thank you so much, it is one of a kind!
Sari used the Daffodils designs for the purse, which turned out more like an original jewelry box, or sewing supplies case. Take a look at the photo of ready project, and below there's a list of required supplies, and "step-by-step" instructions.
Linen for designer fabric (30 cm x 150 cm)
Plain white cotton for lining (30 cm x 150 cm)
Heavy duty tearaway backing (30 cm x 150 cm)
2 plastic zippers, each about 25 cm long
Embroidery thread in originally suggested colors
Before starting any sewing I had to enlarge the triangle so it would fit the panels long side and add a satin stitch rim around both pieces. This is something I think you could do to update your set.Detailed Instruction:Step 1:
Cut a piece of tearaway backing.
Set up for embroidery - slid a piece of backing under the fabric, and hoop.
Cut a piece cotton for lining.
Push the cotton piece under embroidery right before sewing the satin stitch outline.
Pin the cotton to top fabric, to keep it in place.
Trim edges to 0.04 inch (1 cm) width.
Pull out excess tearaway.
Sew one panel and trim to satin stitch.
Sew two panels and trim opposite edges to 0.04 inch (1 cm), the others to satin stitch.
Trim bottom piece to satin stitch.
Trim top piece like this, bottom side to satin stitch and the others to 0.04 inch (1 cm).
Sew a satin stitch on the 0.04 inch (1 cm) edges.
Trim the excess from edges.
Align bottom piece and side panels like this:
Stitch side panels to bottom piece with 0.2 inch (0.5 cm) wide satin stitch, leave panel sides open.
Sew panel sides together, first with long zigzag then with satin stitch.
Sew by hand the last cm which can't be sewn by machine.
Sew zippers on to top piece by using the trimmed 0.04 inch (1 cm) edges as sewing allowance.
Fold zipper to the back of top piece, and sew from top side a straight stitch along the satin stitch which goes around the embroidery.
When sewing the lower part of zipper in place, remember to fold the excess part in the beginning of the zipper round the allowance edge to keep it nice. Fold down zipper and sew from outside a lock stitch following the small satin stitch. Sew stopstitches, to prevent zipper from breaking. Sew top in place first with loose zig zag and then with 0.2 inch (0.5cm) satin stitch. Cut off excess zipper, and Voilá - the dressing case or jewelry case is finnished. You can even put a small pad lock on it.
Here is the purse, open and closed:
