Hey guys! this is some photos from my “Junk trunk kit” unboxing, i have been invited to be part of the January Junk Trunk kit team and i recieved the box today! so needless to say i was pretty excited to bust it open and see what i got!
I will have a video linked below of the unboxing but i am posting some photos show casing some of the things, so excited to try and make some of this stuff and my very open junk journal
All things to make fun tassels and keychains
Fun ephemera pieces, fabric and printables
Thank you Jessica for inviting me and i hope i can make some fun videos for ya!
Print out a circle 7-8" in diameter for a template or use a bowl or pot lid as a template
Cut out 1 circle from each fabric
place the circles right sides together
Sew around the circle with a 1/4" seam allowance, leave a 2 to 3" opening for turning
Flip the piece right sides out, do a top stitch around the edge about 1/8" away from the edge as you go over the open hole fold it inwards to seal it up
Grab a needle and thread, ribbon of some sort and a centre piece if you wish
Fold the piece in half finding the centre point, use your needle and thread and insert into the fabric near the edge, go to the other side of the centre point and again insert your needle into the edge of the fabric, pull the fabric tight so it looks like this
find the insert secting corner points and again sew those corners together until it looks like this
going to each point fold the fabric over to the back so it looks like this, do this a total of 4 times and fiddle with the fabric until it all looks even and forms a perfect square
thread a string or ribbon through one corner hiding the knot under the folded fabric in the back.
Fold up the bottom 1/2 to hem the wrists, use a Zig Zag stitch
Tac the end of the elastic at one end, place it above your hem line, using your zig zag stitch sew down the elastic while pulling it tight to stretch it to the end of the glove as shown
By stretching the elastic is allows the glove to gather on its own and will help keep the cold air out
fold the glove right sides together as shown and pin/clip around the edges, sew around the glove to close it up, not necessary to sew the folded edge, back stitch a bunch at the wrist part as their will be more stress from being pulled on and off
and thats about it! snip the corner between the fingers and the thumb being sure not to slice the stitches and clip around the finger tips and thumb to help the fabric round out once flipped
Great scrap buster and i dont feel so bad if my kids loose them!
