I want you to show how to make simple fabric Wallet for your favorite Filofax. PS you could use this tutorial also for pencil case if you need that more.
For star you need your super nice and fun planner. Take off one of the page so you will see where you need to make “holes” for your wallet.
- Page from your planner
- two scraps of fabric a little bit bigger then your page
Zig zag the edge of the fabric where you will sew the zipper on. And sew it on. (Tip: use zipper foot, or move needle position, for easy sewing).
Finger press the fabric and make topstitch close to the edge.
Move the zipper slider and sew back and fort a few times. Then cut the rest of the zipper off. Don’t on a metal part of the zipper.
With your page help mark where you need to make small loops or “holes” for your planer.
Sew the sting on the edge. Where the string is a loop (on your mark), sew it a few times back and forth, and when you finish the loop, sew it with zig zag stitch to the next loop. Repeat for all loops that you need.
Open the zipper and fold the fabric right side to right side. Then Make a stitch 5 mm from the edge and if you didn’t make zig zag stitch all edges before, do it now.
Turn the fabric over and you are done. Yey.
Place it in your Planner or Filofax and ask your friend if he or she need it too. It is really simple project.
If you like this DIY please stay tuned on Tutorial Girl Blog or Bludor Magazine, and you will get it more. Also an idea for you. Maybe you could make this see through version from an table cloth, or if you have bigger planner use this for a pencil case, or stickers…
