Tutorial/Embroidery Project – Small Snail Purse/Bag with Vintage Snail Embroidery, Marking Circle for Sewing, Part 14

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!

Getting that round circle piece into the tube requires some folding and marking.

We will mark 4 points on the circle and 4 points on the tube and match them to sew the circle onto the end of the purse tube.

Fold the circle in half. Mark the fold with pins as shown in the photo.

Bring those 2 pins together and hold. The circle will then fold in half and where the fold is, mark with pins.

Your circle with 4 markings at each quarter of the circle:

Now to mark the tube of the purse. The 2 side seams are already 2 of your markings that you need. You do not have to mark these with pins since they are obvious to find.

Match the 2 seams up…

hold them together…

smooth the tube flat, out toward the edge. At the fold on the end, mark with a pin.

Do the same for the other side.

You now have 4 markings at the quarters on the tube and 4 markings at the quarters on the circle. Match the pins on the circle to the pins and the seams on the tube. I don’t usually add any more pins than these 4 points. You will need the ‘ease’ between each pin to smoothly sew the circle to the tube.

For the snail purse, we are adding some ‘bling’ to the purse by adding some piping.

Be sure that the RIGHT side of the piping is facing the RIGHT side of the tube. That is what will be seen from the front of the bag.

The end of the piping overlaps the first seam/pin match (where I decided to start sewing, at the seam). Sandwich the piping between the tube and the circle.

I let the piping hang free with out pins. I find it easier to lay the tape down while using the ‘ease’ of the circle to match all edges while sewing from pin to pin.

The next stop is the sewing. To get it one the sewing machine and to get the ease in with a clean installation takes some patience and sssslllloooooowww sewing. 😉

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
