It is autumn time, the most mysterious time of the year. It sneaks up quietly and imperceptibly. This time of year paints nature in bright colors like an artist. But there is another, less colorful side to it when the rainy season begins. Many consider it a time of sadness and reflection. But this period is beautiful, because it gives us the opportunity to enjoy life and at the same time immerses us in ourselves...
Today, I want to share with you a tutorial on how to sew autumn leaves potholders.
- fabric patches of various colors 4 cm * 15 cm;
- piece of fabric (for the back of the potholders);
- a cloth pencil on a piece of soap;
- sewing machine;
- leaf pattern.
So, having collected all the necessary materials, proceed to the composition of the future potholders.
This potholder can be sewn from the remnants of tissue. Collect patches of different fabrics that are suitable for the composition color scheme. Width of flaps is 4 cm, length is 15 cm.
After collecting all the strips, place them together in the order that you like. Sew the strips in the correct sequence and iron. We need to make two such rectangles.
Fold the leaf template in half and place on top of the workpiece at an angle of 60 degrees. thus, as it is shown in the picture.
Put the template sheet on top of the fabric and cut the sheet of fabric, leaving allowances for seams.
With the second rectangle, do the same, only in the other direction. Fold the leaf pattern in half, turn and cut.
Sew together two parts.
On the sewn halves, put the leaf pattern and cut with an allowance for seams.
According to the pattern of the leaf, cut out the padding and the back side of the potholders from any piece of fabric.
Have "sandwich" quilted on a sewing machine, around the perimeter of the potholders and between the seams.
Proceed to the edging, for this we need a welt of a matching color.
Sheathe the welt all over a potholder, the tip is not cut but output in the loop.
Our potholder "Autumn Leaf" is ready!
Get inspired and have smooth lines! :)
