Bucilla Stamped Cross Stitch Kit of yoru choice
½ yd Cotton fabric of choice
Hand sew the protruding half of the snap to the
inside of the tab. Close the case and
note where the snap touches, sew its mate there. Open the case and stand it upright. The short
piece with the tab should be on bottom. The tab should be on the inside of the
case. Note where it touches the back, and sew a mate there as well.
- Follow kit instructions for
cross stitching panel.
- Cut your stitched panel to 8
1/3” x 9 3/4”
- From the cotton fabric cut one
8 1/3” x 1 1/4”, one 8 1/3” x 10”, one 8 1/3” x 5 5/8”, four 2” squares,
and two 2 1/2” squares.
- Fold the 2” squares in half to
create triangles and press. Pin one to each corner of the 8 1/3” x 10” piece
you cut, lining up all the raw edges. Sew along the raw edges of the
triangles with a 1/8 inch seam, creating pockets.
- Place the 8 1/3” x 1 1/4” piece
across the top of your stitched panel, right sides together and sew
together with a 1/4” seam. Press
- Right sides together, place
pocket panel onto stitched piece, aligning the new top of stitched piece
edges with the edges of the pocket panel.
Sew along the short edge with a 1/4 inch seam. Then, lay the last cut
piece of cotton fabric onto the other end of the pocket piece, right sides
together, and sew short side with a 1/4 inch seam. So now your pocket
piece should be in the middle. Press the seams open.
- Sew the 2 1/2” squares, right
sides together, with a 1/4 inch seam, leaving the bottom edge open for
turning. Turn right side out and press, this will create the tab.
- Now cut the rectangle of outer
fabric. You can skip a lot of calculations if you just lay the sewn inner
piece of fabric on top, and cut your outer fabric to the same size.
- With the sewn fabric face up, place the tab along the
center edge of the shortest rectangle. It should be pointing inward.
- Right sides together, lay the
outer fabric on top of the sewn fabric and pin in place, matching all
edges. Sew along three edges with a 1/4 inch seam, leaving the short end without
the tab open. (This should also be
the end with your cross stitched panel.)
- Trim the edge of the tab if
necessary and trim corners. Turn right side out and poke out the corners
with a blunt tool. Press well.
- Cut inserts from chipboard as
follows: two 7 3/8” x 1/2” (these will be the binding pieces), one 7 3/8”
x 4 1/4”, one 7 3/8” x 9 3/8”, and one 7 3/8” x 9”. For each of the larger inserts, cut two
pieces of batting. Using spray
adhesive attach a piece of batting to each side of your larger cut
chipboard pieces. (The small
inserts of chipboard for the binding do not need any batting.)
- Slide the 4 1/4” insert into
the case and work it down to the bottom. If necessary, insert scissors and
the batting. Topstitch a seam right next to the insert. Next add a binding piece. Slide it down
to the seam, then topstitch next to the insert to hold it in place. The
seam should be nearly on top of the original seam.
- Slide the 9 3/8” insert into the
center piece, and topstitch close to the original seam. Add a binding
piece, and topstitch right next to it. Finally, add the last insert.
- Fold the raw edges inward. Sew
the opening by hand with a blind stitch.
