Heart Wristlet

Super Cute heart wristlet!
Things you will need
main fabric – Arrow fabric
lining fabric – chevron
zipper that spands the width of your heart – zipper
a metal loop, key finding, jewelry finding to attach the wrist strap – D ring
fusible fleece – http://go.magik.ly/ml/3od5/
Slice two of the piece of fabric in half as shown , this is where zipper will be placed

 cut and iron fusible fleece to fit the heart 1/4″ smaller (this will help reduce the bulk in the edges of the heart

 Using a hot iron press both sides, if you dont have fusible fleece a stabilizer material  will work as well

 place the top of the heart (main fabric) on your table right side facing up, place the zipper zipper side down onto the piece of fabric lining up the edges of the zipper with the bottom part of the heart piece, place the lining fabric ontop of the zipper right sides facing down. sew along the that edge as close to the zipper as you can get, if you have a zipper foot that would be the best option.

if you have difficulties placing the fabric please refer to my video tutorial linked below

once you finished sewing the zipper on fold the two pieces of fabric back to expose the zipper and sew along the edge near the zipper about a 1/4″ away for a nice top stitch

 now we will attach the bottom of the heart, laying down the main fabric and then the zipper portion (zipper down) and then lining right sides down, making sure the edges of the fabric all line up and the bottom of the hear lines up with the top of the heart on the sides. sew next to the zipper, sometimes its hard to get past the zip so if you sew a small portion of it and then take the piece of out of your machine to move the zip then you can get past it better.

flip open the fabric to expose the zipper and again top stitch 1/4″ away from the zipper
Note the zipperfoot is very handy and can butt up to the zipper
Now its time to attach the back of the heart!
keeping the sewn portion facing up, lay the main fabric heart down onto the sewn portion right sides down, then lay the lining fabric on top with the right side facing up.
slip in the loop on the right hand corner of the heart and pin in place.
Sew all around the perimeter of the heart, once you have passed over the zipper (slowly) open it up half way and then continue on sewing the entire thing
once finished flip it right sides out
 it takes a minute or two and a little bit of finessing but it should look like this!
now for some top stitching 

very slow and steady when you go over your zipper! if its metal zip over the teeth!
and then your done! just in time for your valentines day dinner 😀 how adorable and it will fit a samsung s7 some money and a few small makeup items so thats a plus!

Half Moon Zipper Toiletry, make up or essential oil pouch

For this tutorial you will need Cotton Fabric, a Outer fabric and lining fabric

find the centre of your zipper and fold the fabric in half length ways to find the centre of the half circle, line up the middle of each and start to pin your zipper along  the edge, using a zipper foot will make this process easier Sew along the side of the zipper, next you will put the lining ontop and again sew along the same edge to attach the lining (make sure the lining and the main fabric is right sides together with the zipper sandwich in between

** You can of course sandwich the zipper between the main fabric and the lining all at once but it can be a little tricky sewing a zipper onto a curved edge so nothing wrong with doing it one step at a time if you are a beginner

This is how it will look once you have sew on the lining, now we will upzip the zipper and do the same thing on the other side, making sure the zipper isnt twisted and lining up with the edge of the main fabric and lining

no shame in using 1000 pins or clips haha

This is how it will look once you have done both sides, it will look puckered at the side where the zipper is attached but thats ok

Now you will flip it right sides out from one of the cut notches

Now you will do a top stitch next to the zipper to finish it off the zipper

*Use a long stitch length to make it a little more fancy and try to go as straight as you possible can

turn the bag inside out and pinch the notches lining up the zipper with the centre of the notch, clip into place and sew along that edge

add bias tape to finish it off

Turn right sides out and then your done!

How to extend your zipper with zipper Tabs

To do a simple zipper tab to add a contrasting fabric – Cut 2 squares 2″ x 2″

If you need to expend a zipper to fit a project then you will cut a larger square

if you can use a zipper foot that will be the best thing as you can get a nice close seem
