|First find your pendent!|
|Then add tatting to pendent.|
Find the bluejeans to cut a rectangular shape (my son grew out of)
cut a 13,1/2 "X 7,7/8" or 20 cm X 30.5cm
use or make motifs that will look good when folded up.
Fold up and cut envelope shaped flap.
|Now draw a boarder of 3/8" or 1 cm all around in ink and snip every 1/2 inch or 1.2 cm|
as shown below.
|Now cut the chic fabric and a great surprise same size. then wash and dry only the blue jean fabric to fluff the ends.|
|Add tatting, stitch down your motifs that go on top, to washed and dried jean fabric|
|On this type of work, always keep thread on top of fabric, so knots do not form underneath.|
|Stitch down lining after turning under I use frey-check product for this fabric on the edges. Then I stitch down the tatted pendent.|
|adding zipper is optional|
|This is how to stitch zipper down if wanted.|
|Tuck the zipper tails inside and stitch down the two edges up to the flap, leave space to place leather strap|
this can be any kind like chain or beads. I use a leather boot lace.
|I slide this in with out the knot and tie know after I stitched up the side.|
|Just a straight stitch in brown tatting thread.|
|You can see the see how the strap is tucked beside the zipper and side seam.|
Oh yes, almost forgot I felt I needed a little extra something to the tatting so I add two wonderful Orchids from Margaret Davis her blog is "Margaret's Designer Cards" she emailed me the pattern and I made 3 one is on chic inside too!
