Sew-Jo's May Club
Happy Spring Everyone!
The May Husqvarna Club will be meeting on Sunday morning, May 5th, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM. There is no Club on Friday night because we will be at the OVQG Quilt Show!! Hope we will see you there!
This month's project is a Tea Wallet. Perfect size to throw in your purse or suitcase. It takes less than 2 fat quarters and would make a great gift. It also could be easily be personalized by using a theme fabric or novelty button. Cathy's closes with a snap but I have added a buttonhole and button which we will sew on by machine.....just because we can!
It is very simple to make but it would help if you cut your pieces out in advance. You need to pre-cut:-
4 pieces measuring 9 1/2" X 7 1/2." Cut one from your theme or outer fabric and 3 from the lining colour.
2 pieces 9 1/2" X 4 1/2" from your theme or outer fabric. Fold them in half to measure 9 1/2" X 2 1/4" and press.
4 pieces 3 1/4" X 2" from you theme or outer fabric.
2 pieces 3 1/4" X 2" from of cut away stabilizer or interfacing.
If you would like to try making a Tea Bag Wallet with us at Club, you will also need to bring:
- Your Sewing machine. Don't forget the power cord and foot control! It's hard to sew without them ;>
- Your buttonhole foot.
- If you have a foot for sewing buttons on bring it.
- A button to match your fabric. If you don't already have one, no worries, I have lots to share.
- Your 1/4" piecing foot
- A wash away marking pen or chalk.
- You will need a spool and bobbin of matching sewing thread to sew it together .
- A couple of pins may come in handy.
If you have any show and tell please bring it along. We all love to see what you have been working on.
As always the Club is free for anyone who has purchased their machine from either Sew-Jo's or Yarn Forward, however a donation for the food bank would be appreciated. Remember that $1 of change will buy $5 worth of food!
