Printed Zipper Pocket TutorialTuesday, October 08, 2013
Printed, Zipped Pocket
These pockets are the result of an afternoon of printing with kids aged between 4 to 8. Armed with painting shirts, and precut fabric we were able to make stamp pads and explore printing with everyday objects.
Each artwork was then turned into a zipped pocket. I have simplified the steps and used pinking shears where ever possible, to streamline the construction. It took about 3 hours to sew all 12 pockets together (only 15 minutes each!).
I am planning to enlist the kids to help me make some more for Christmas presents for their friends and teachers.
We had a great time making them. If you have any questions, suggestions or even photos of the ones you have finished, please drop me a line - seven.stitches.amy(at)gmail.com .
A few notes to start
- The images display best in Adobe Acrobat. They show up a little blurry on Google Drive
- The measurements have been given in imperial first with metric in brackets.
