Sewing a flat felt clutch is simple and makes for a great gift! Here’s how to sew a quick unlined one with hand stitches.
The workshop I’m giving on handstitching, embroidery and the making of a felt clutch is drawing near! In anticipation, here’s sharing with you a quick tutorial on how to do a simple chain stitch.
Chain stitches are mighty useful ones – use them to create much fancier stitches than plain straight stitches, without much fuss! So here goes:
Felt is amazing. It’s one of the materials that you can make an endless list of things with!
The most obvious use would be felt clutches and bags which are relatively quick to make. (I was preparing some material today for a workshop I’ll be giving on simple felt clutches for first-timers. Really excited to see what the class whips up. Check out some of the felt and fabric…)
But of course it doesn’t stop there. Check out these awesome felt products!
A lot of times when traveling, I can’t help but bring home some cool fabric for -some project-. The problem is that having an idea is very different from sitting down and actually doing it! Hence the stacks of material lying around (oops!).
This year, I’ve decided to stop buying fabric until I’ve finished using up the ones lying around in my room (except for commissioned work of course).
Part one of this clear-the-clutter attempt? Thick felt which I bought from Tokyo. Loved the colours, loved the thickness, love felt.
