With the following basic guidelines, you will learn how to sew a hand wallet from felt cloth. This will be a wonderful gift for your mother.
To stitch a cherry blossom wallet, you need to prepare:
– Felt cloth with dark gray, light gray, light blue, white and brown.
– Small red and white beads
– Tools: scissors, needles and thread
First, cut the dark gray and blue felt cloth as body of the wallet and body pads.
Cut the white felt cloth into 6 cherry blossoms with five petals (cut flowers with different sizes to create beautiful layout), then cut the brown cloth to make the branches of flowers.
Use brown thread to sew the branch of flowers on the left corner of the dark grey body of wallet. Put white flowers on stems and use pins to fix them.
Sew eight short red lines divided equally between the flowers, and each end of the sewing thread must have small red beads as pistils. Then sew three white beads in the center of the flowers.
Similarly, stitch pistils for other flowers. Sew 4 flowers on the branch of flowers on the left corner of the body of wallet and 2 flowers on the lid of wallet. You can decorate flowers according to different layouts you like.
Superimpose fitly the dark gray cloth with the front blue pad of the body and stitch to fix them. Also, superimpose the light gray cloth of the body with the back pads of the body and stitch thread lines to fix them.
Next, press two blue linings of the front and back of the body together so that the curves in two body parts fit each other, use pins or sew a thread line to fix. Use the button sewing stitches to stitch border of the front and back bodies of wallet.
Sew the mouth and the lid of wallet with button stitches too. Finally, add buttons to the wallet.
Only 4 steps, you will have a cherry blossom wallet for your small items. You can decorate with different kinds of flowers and fabrics according to your preference. Or you can also give it to your mother on birthday or other special days.
