My First Tutorial !!!

Posted by acblog at 9:33 PM
How to MakeBaby Bootie Hangy

First select two different materials

 Pin the top part of the background fabric about an inch backwards

 Sew a double stitch along where you have placed the pins

Should look something like this ^

Next cut your pockets. I use a rotary cutter and a broken straight edge to help :)

Ta da! Pockets...

 Using an iron, flatten any creases in your material

Then flip over your pockets and iron creases along your edges to be sewn

When you are done you should have something that looks like this

Cut a thin braided elastic the same length as the top edge of your pockets

Sew your elastic into the material, and the edges of the pockets

... the pockets

Arrange your pockets as desired and sew along the bottom and sides of each

Slip a wooden dowel or two (depending on your length) into the top sew edge

Next, just add string or ribbon to both edges of the wooden dowel and hang!

I am open to suggestions about the elastic part. Help me out! :)
As it is almost 1am, I am going to get some sleep... but I will post the finish product tomorrow! Good night all!
