Well I finished the tutorial ^^ I hope all the links and everything work as Ive never added links to a post before *-* and I REALLY hope it makes sense xD haha let me know if any of it is confusing ^^ The fabric I used for my Lady skirt i found at jo ann fabrics in the quilting fabric, it was about $3-4 a yard. Also I searched around for some boots, and to my surprise couldnt really find anything all that great, but ill keep looking ^^
Lady Skirt Pouch Tutorial
1- 22inchx28inch (standard) Posterboard
1 ½ Yards Fabric
24- Ό inch studs (the studs I used I found in the scrap-booking section at jo-anns)
1/8 yard brown vinyl
Tacky or Elmers glue
Ruler, preferably a clear ruler which can be found
in the quilting section at Jo-ann Fabrics
As Shown: Draw 8- 2 ½ x 10 inch rectangles, label all A
& 8- 5 x 7 rectangles, label all B
As Shown: on B pieces, from outside edges on sides and bottom, mark Ύ inches and draw lines. Then from lines mark another Ύ and draw lines. Score lines with scissors
As Shown: cut corners of B pieces
Cut 8- 3 ½ x 11 inch pieces of fabric & 8- 6x8 inch pieces of fabric
With paint brush, spread glue over one side of all A &B pieces* place fabric on top, press down and smooth. Use weights to keep pieces flat while drying. Let dry 5-10 minutes.
*only do one at a time. Ex: do one, and while its drying do the next and so on.
As Shown: After drying, glue over hanging pieces* by spreading glue on reverse side and folding fabric to the back. Press down, smooth and again weights may be used. Let dry completely for 15-20 minutes.
*On B pieces, cut corners of fabric s shown, leaving about Ό inch over hanging
As Shown: Fold B pieces on scored lines and glue in to place. This is a little time consuming because you have to hold each piece as it dries.
As Shown: Glue A and B pieces together, hold and let dry
As Shown: On a scrap piece of posterboard, draw a Ύ x 3 ½ inch rectangle. Mark a dot ½ inch above top line. Connect top corners to dot, cut out. This is the template for the brown vinyl detail pieces.
As Shown: Use template to cut out 8 pieces in the brown vinyl. Using exacto knife, CAREFULLY cut a small notch for the stud to be attached into.
As Shown: After stud is in place, glue brown vinyl piece to box in the center, with the point about a ½ inch from the bottom.
As Shown: Again, using exacto knife CAREFULLY cut small notches in the corners of piece A and attatch studs. Bring top edge of piece A over and glue in place on piece B.
As for the pouches, theyre done ^^ to attach them to the belt you can do whatever is easiest, but this is what I did:
As Shown: cut a rectangle scrap of fabric and glue it to the backside of the pouch, with fabric sticking out over top. Use that extra fabric to sew it to the belt.
