I just love all kinds of folders, organizers, wallets, holders for all sorts of everyday things, and in particular, for documents and cards. This is not my first DIY, and it's again about a holder. The item is compact in size but quite roomy, with many pockets.
To stitch such a holder, you need
- felt with thickness of 1-1.2 mm of three different colours
The pattern today is free but solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Furthermore, I cordially ask, if you are copying the tutorial and share on other resources, remember to post a direct link.
You need one piece of each detail from the cut and two pieces of the main detail for the base of the holder.
Print the pattern in the right scale, and when cutting, transfer all dotted marking with a tailor's marker or chalk on the parts.
Cut out all details, prepare a zip and metal findings — any lock which you like, zipper 15-20 cm, carabine lock, semi-circle ring.
Start assembling with the left section of pockets, take these details:
Tack the zip to the pocket:
Stitch and remove the thread.
You can scorch the zip to avoid fringing. You can also sew the outer line of the zip as the pocket won't have any lining.
Go on assembling the pockets, you need these details:
Sew the cuts with a decorative stitch as in the photo above.
Sew the pocket to the grey detail:
Then put the joined details on the pocket with the zip bent in half — and tack them to the pink base:
Stitch, remove the basting. The left block of pockets is ready!
Proceed to the assembly of the central section. Take two more details:
Adorn the cuts with decorative stitches and join the parts with each other following the markup:
Tack the pockets to the pink base around the perimeter:
Stitch, remove the temporary thread. The central section is ready!
Start processing the right side of the holder. You need just two parts:
Process the edges of the part that will be a loop for a pen:
Then fold it in half and tack to the pink detail:
Set the upper part of the magnetic button if you've selected it as a lock.
Tack the block to the pink base:
Stitch, remove the basting:
The inner part of the holder is fully assembled, this turned out to be like this:
Add a couple of cute details. Follow the steps:
Fix the strip with the lock on the holder:
Then attach the ring:
And the bottom side of the magnetic button:
Now join the main grey detail with the pink one, carefully aligning them and tackin around the perimeter:
Stitch, remove excess thread and cut the seam allowance neatly along the seam.
The holder is ready!
Enjoy your creativity!
