DIY Patchwork Sanitary Pads Pouch
1. Cut Your Fabrics And Make The Patchwork Blocks
Materials you will need:
- 1 Patchwork block of 4.5 x 5.5 inches, made with the Log Cabin method, or any other patchwork technique.
- 1 piece of fabric A of 4.5 x 5.5 inches, with an appliqued pieced (oval piece of 3 x 4 inches)
- 2 pieces of fabric in green of 2 x 2.5 inches to make the leaves
- 1 piece of fabric B cut in a circle of 3 inches
- 1 piece of fabric A of 4 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches.
How To Sew On The Main Patchwork Blocks
The first block is made with the Log Cabin method, you can start making this block with a piece of fabric of 2 x 2 1/4 inch and with strips of fabric 1 3/4 wide, you can take a look to the image to get the number of strips of fabric to make this block, when the block is finished, press it and trim it to the size needed for this tutorial.
The second block you will make for this tutorial is made with the applique method, you need to cut the piece of fabric and do the applique of an oval piece of 3 x 4 inches in the center, cut also the piece for the flower (3 inches circle), work to make the two side leaves, I explain how to fold the fabric to make each leaf on the video.
How To Sew On The Patchwork Sanitary Pads Pouch
Lay on your work table all the pieces you need to make this pouch (3), sew on the two main blocks first and then sew on the long piece of fabric on the side, press.
To cut the piece of fabric for the interior, lay on your work table a piece of fabric big enough, lay over this the piece made with the three pieces, pretty side to pretty side, cut the fabric for the interior 1/2 inch bigger from each side of the main piece. Cut a piece of thin batten fabric of 4 1/2 x 10 inches, put the batting fabric piece under the two layers of fabric where the two blocks made with patchwork are, pinch a few pins to hold the three layers of fabric together while you sew on.
Sew on your sewing machine all around the piece, 1/4 inch seam allowance, follow the shape of the piece made with three blocks, don’t forget to leave an open gap to turn out the piece later.
When the piece is all stitched, with a pair of scissors for cutting fabric, trim the piece, follow the main piece as reference, trim the corners and turn out the piece, stitch to close the open gap.
How To Do The Quilting.
The quilting can be done by hand or with your sewing machine.
How To Finish the Patchwork Sanitary Pads Pouch
Lay the quilted piece on your work table with the pretty side down, fold twice the long side piece, pinch two or three pins to hold the folded piece on its place, stitch on the three sides of the pouch by hand with small stitches.
When you finish stitching up the three sides of the pouch, you can do an embroidery stitch (Herringbone stitch) to cover the small stitches you made before (optional)
You can do the Herringbone stitch also on the edge of the oval piece on the front piece of the pouch. Sew on a button on the circle and do some long stitches to make it look as a flower.
As a final step, you can sew on a button and a loop or sew on a snap button.
The Patchwork Sanitary Pads Pouch is finished and it looks amazing!
