A quick stationary case for my girl

Hi to all ! today i am not posting a tutorial !just wanted to share a few glimpses of a new very quick and simple stationary case i made for my daughter as a reinforcement gift.
As i have mentioned earlier she is going through her final exams and all the mothers know it very well how difficult it is to keep your child seated for a long time so that she can revise her work..... No doubt its a challenge......... so this idea popped into my head...... that insted of sweets or games for reinforcement i should make her something she can use every day but the problem is that i am not very speedy in stitching and i absolutely have no time left for such activities now a days as i have to take care of the house family pets my younger daughter and then there comes the studies of the elder one so i managed to slip a few moments to make this quick pencil case for her.

she selected the fabric her self out of my collection and she asked to add some cristals to it so i hot glued these folower sequeces to it .

i know its a very ordinary looking thing but so long as the receiver likes it ,it serves the purpose of being a good reinforcement :) so I am happy with the out come.

Hoo are you part 35

No Sew check book cover TUTE

There are days when you really need to sew some thing but just dont get the hang of it and for some reason you dont want to sit and bound your self in the territory of your SOWING MACHINE ,in those rebellious days NO sew projects rock :)............. what do you say ?
No sew is also soooo good for those who dont know or dont like to sew .
I really needed a check book cover but just couldn't find the time for it as my elder daughter is going to have her final exams in 6 days and i am really busy in helping her to prepare any way coming back to the real thing today i just need 15 minutes of all those people who need a check book cover but dont want to stitch it :)

The stuff you will be needing
  • formic seat or felt
  • scissors
  • transparent adhesive
  • pencil and foot
thats it

First off all you will need some measurements to cut out formic seat

measure the length of your check book mine was =8inches +1 inch =9inches
width ,mine was =4 inches x 4=16inches

so we will cut a piece of 9 inch width and 16 inch length (good for my check book) as you can see in the above picture.

fold the sheet in half to find out the mid line now apply adhesive to the lower edges fold and apply pressure with your hands for some time so that the bond is strong after both of the sides are done your cover should look some thing like this .

Now fold it in half and trim the edges with fancy scissors this step is optional you may omit it .

now comes the fun part decorating you may stick some lace or beads or sequences but i opted for a simpler thing :) i drew some free hand borders with a permanent marker ,

The last step is to cover your folded or closed check book cover with a cotton cloth and iron it on medium heat and then immediately place it under a heavy book and leave it there for a while this step will help to maintain its shape and creases.

Your brand new cover is ready to store in all of your check books .enjoy.
