Proceed to the sequence of creating the necklace.

First you need to prepare the fabric itself. To do this, it is necessary to cut the lycra or stretch into strips about 1-1.5 centimeters wide. All stripes need to be taken for two long edges and stretch. In this way, the trimmed edge will wrap around and we will get a neat striped stripe.

Next you will need to start the process of weaving the main part of the necklace. There are no clear requirements and rules, you can choose the most convenient way for yourself. You can weave the cords according to the principles of braiding the baubles. You can use the knitting needles and crochet and tie the details to your own discretion. You can just weave the pigtails. The more tangled weaving, the more original and brighter it looks.

It's important not to forget to leave long enough ends of the cords around the edges to fasten the product to the chain.

At the end of the weaving, attach the product to the chain. Use the fitting to select the length of the decoration that you need for yourself. Alternatively, you can leave a small part of the chain for further length adjustment.

Ready-made toys photo

We will create a pair of toy-beast toys in Tilda's technique, a boy and a girl.

Required Materials:

  • two flaps of coarse white cloth measuring 30x30 centimeters;
  • two flaps in a fine pattern( pink and blue);
  • multi-colored sewing thread;
  • material for stuffing toys( sintepon, silicone or holofayber);
  • pencil;
  • scissors;
  • needle;
  • drawing paper;
  • sewing machine.

Required tools and materials photo

Toys can be stitched both on the sewing machine and manually.

Fabric preparation. White fabric should be painted in light beige tones. For tailoring a boy needs a darker beige. To do this, dilute about 3 teaspoons of instant coffee in 3 cups of boiling water, add 1 teaspoon of PVA glue and salt and keep the cloth in the solution until the water cools completely. Dry the cloth, pre-spread. Smooth with iron after drying.

For sewing a girl needs a light beige. The fabric should be painted according to a similar scheme only with the use of not tea, but tea( 2-3 tea bags).

Cutting and sewing. Cutting out all the details should be done using pre-prepared paper patterns. It is necessary in the process of cutting to follow the share of the fabric, so as not to cut the fabric in the wrong direction.

All paired parts can be sewn on a sewing machine or manually with a machine-stitched seam. Details of the "heart" need to be turned out, for this, in the process of stitching, leave a hole.

All excess allowances that were left on the seams, cut off, leaving no more than 3 mm.

All parts must be filled with filler. The most convenient way to do this is in the process of stapling the parts.

You do not need to put your feet and hands tight so that you can easily seat the doll.

To sew a doll it is necessary to begin with sewing of ears to a head.

Then you need to connect the head to the trunk.

Sew all the elements together photo

Sew the legs and handles with concealed seams. Take the thread in the tone of the fabric, so that the seams are as inconspicuous as possible.

Rinse with cosmetic rouge or other improvised cheek. Sew patches and hearts to ready-made toys. Pre-fill the hearts with filler.

Simple flowers

For the manufacture of such a lovely flower, the old children's clothing made of cotton fabric is best suited. Children grow very fast, so there's probably something in your closet.

It is better to use a fabric of bright color with a floral or floral print. Although these flowers look great with graphic prints.

On the presented template you need to cut out two large and four small flowers from a fabric of different colors. And one more - from the felt for the base of the flower. Such a dense base will support the petals and give them a shape.

On top of the felt, lay two large petals so that the previous petals are visible in the unfolded view, and on them are small petals folded four times as shown.

Sew the petals photo

Next, you need to fasten the petals together. For this you can use the sewing machine, or you can sew the petals manually. Now you need to create a flower center. We suggest you to do this by fitting an old button-cloth with a cloth of suitable color and sew it in the center. You can use for the middle of a flower and a bright colored plastic button, beads or beads.
