1. Defines the size of the bag (don’t worry, all the same, the dimensions will be as they want — I started with this size).


2. Do hand applique using freezer paper. On the paper draw a symbolic figure of a girl, square 11*11 cm


3. The outline of the picture, outline in black marker, mirror, outline the selected part onto the paper to freeze (smooth side down). Use a lightbox or glass under the light.


4. Cut out a piece of paper for freezing and smoothed with an iron to the wrong side of the fabric (smooth side down).


5. Cut, 3-4 mm seam allowance, as pictured.


Iron smooth away the seam allowance on the paper for freezing.

6. Paving a running stitches to applique was the same as the picture.


7. Orientirueshsya on our drawing, attach one item to another, use the lightbox.


8. Sew the top of the apron, stitch length 1 mm, which is hidden between the two fabrics.


9. From the inside looks as we cut out unnecessary compaction of the fabric, leaving a seam allowance of 3 mm.


10. Consistently collect all the parts for the manual application, one piece is hiding under the other, and therefore, the order in which.

All the schematic symbols, letter — capital letter name, respectively, without letters, but they all fit into the square 11*11 cm, and collected from all repetitions of color.

12. In the end, the squares tend to size 10*10 cm, between stripes of 3 cm, for the effect emitted by the flash squares of fabric (I have a red ornament). No one knows what fabric will be suitable.

Also with the main background, when you select the fabric desired, you may want to remove.

13. Now geometry. We reach the base fabric on all sides to desired size. I have in total about 55*85 cm

After assembling the whole piece, sew the appliqué on the back side of the bag.

Define the center of across and along.

If the bottom width of 22 cm from the centre delayed in both directions for 11 cm and draw the line or zavturove.

Also the sides approximately 11 cm.


14. Conduct advanced line, also come up with simple and clearly benchmarks for stitches, stripes, wavy lines and so on. You can use a flexible curve or a line or draw a template on cardboard and twist. Mirror!

The edge of the product is also defined by the line.
