Steps

Preparation

Finalize design based on function of


product and customer feedback.
Take a clean sheet of paper
and transfer the modified
design onto it, complete with
measurements, in pen for
clarity. Use different line
styling and colors to
differentiate between the
different parts, materials and
stitches of the product.
Label the different names of
the different parts of the
product accordingly.
Purchase the materials needed to
create product based on the final
design. Materials List:
Plain fabric: 60x45cm
Patterned fabric: 45x20cm
Prepare the materials and tools
needed to create the product.
Transfer the design of the
product onto the fabric using
a ruler and tailors chalk. Do
this on a flat, firm surface so
that the fabric doesnt shift
as it is being drawn on. A
should be transferred onto
the plain fabric, and B-C-D
should be transferred onto
the patterned fabric.
Cut out the different pieces
of the fabric. Then, with a
pencil, write the titles of the
different cutout parts based
on the labels in the design.
Do this on the inside.
Make sure the tools are fit for
creating by testing them out
before hand on a scrap piece
of fabric. Make sure the
settings on the sewing
machine dont taut the string,
so that the tread wont snap.
