Step 1: Requirements
Top pins-Not in picture
For Gift Box
Sewing machine-Not in pic
Step 2: Join+Piping
I had two pieces of scrap off white fabric in size of 40"x 3 3/4".Join both together so it will be doubled and thick.
Out of the pink scrap fabric I cut out 1 1/4" x 80" long piece.I joined at three places as I did not have this amount in length.The join is invisible as it is a printed fabric..I did the piping on both edges.
Step 3: Sew the strips
For the scaf I cut 8 pieces in the size of 8"x 3/4".I Folded this in to two in lengthweis and sewed a straight stitch 1/4" away from the edge from X to Y. For the bag I cut 9 pieces in the size of 3 1/2"x 9" This was also folded in to two and sewed from A to B
Now turn them inside out.Turning these narrow pieces inside out is very tricky.I forgot to take some pictures.You could see on the 6th step as how to turn inside out.
Step 4: Attatch the bands
PIC 2 :When you fold the long off white band in to two,one side has 4 stripes and the othe side has 5 strips to hang the bags.
PIC 3: Now fold the scarf hanging strips in to two and insert inbetween the long band which is folded to gether.
Sew on all four side marked x with the scarf strip together.On the bottom fold in 1/2" inside and on top sew 3/4" away from the fold ,so that there will be a small gap to insert the metal wire.Please refer the pictures to understand better .
Step 5: Cover metal wire +Turn inside out
On one end of the piece sew double knot very tightly.Then insert the needle through from the behind.(pic4)Keep gathering the fabric and pass the needle and take it out from the other side.No matter how long and narrow your fabric is,this is the easiest way to turn them inside out.
Now pull the gathers towards the end where you put the knot,and very slowly try to get the end of the fabric inside by slowly moving the gathers towards it.You have to be very careful in this, when you pull the thread from the other side,as there is a possibility for the thread to break.When it is a joined piece it is a bit too difficult for the first timers,until they get the hang out of it.
Pic 6 showes the end where the knot was sewn has come out from the other side.Once the end is out ,then there is nothing to worry you can just pull it out straight away .
I guess this is a little bit complicating to read ,so please refer the pictures carefully then you will understand better than reading this
Last of all insert the metal wire in to this strip and sew up both ends.
Step 6: Insert
The other option is to attatch velcro on top and paste it around.Then you dont need to use the metal wire.
Step 7: Hang your stuffs
The first picture shows that I have hanged it in my cupboard.The other two pictures shows that it is hanged in my corridor coat rack.
What do you think of this organized bag/scarf holder.
Step 8: Make the gift box
Cut out the cardboard in two sizes given on the picture.One is slightly bigger than the other.This is the cover.My wrapping paper is gold and the wrong side is silver.I prefer the silver and used the wrong side. Now cut a piece of the wrapping paper and paste it in the middle covering the entire square 7"x 7" on all sides . Now fold up the four sides and stick them with scotch tape.Now cut out 13.5"x13.5" wrapping papper,lay it flat the golden side facing upwards.Keep one piece of the box and start covering from all sides.Fold in from one side and use glue to paste them.Next fold the opposite side and paste.Check the bottom to avoid the creases..Do the other two sides and complete the two parts of the boxes.
Step 9: Make the Bow
At both ends I folded inwards to get a V shape.
