1. Why This Class Is Perfect For You!: Hi. I'm the last to scavenge on textile artists and the teacher here in scale share. Welcome to my class crafted Pink Ocean Tiny house. This is a great class for absolute beginners and rookies. And so I'm going to sky you every step of the way I'm going to guide. You have to work with a given pattern to sell the Coritiba elements by hand, using running stage, how to construct a house structure and use polyester is feeling and most importantly, have to have fun with a simple, rewarding project. It's a fun, creative, simple project anyone can dio. So what are you waiting for? Let's go into the material east. 2. Material list for this project: - with . 3. Step 1: Preparations: you know there to begin your project, you first need to obtain the pattern. Do that by going into the project. If scroll down into project and resources and on the right side, you confined under resources the pdf file, you click on it and then it it pops up and then you can print it out. So the pattern is comprised of the base, which is the main structure of the house, Then the roof that comes on top of it. And then you have, ah, pattern for window adore Underland reader. So now cut the pattern into the parts you're going toe work with With the fabrics, we'll be using about 6 to 7 pieces of fabric, preferably in medium weight, like converse or thick linen. If you're going to use thin cottons than I suggest, you use a fabric stabilizer and irony it onto the fabric before you can't a map 4. Step 2: Cutting the parts: We're going to use the fabrics now and cut out the different segments off the house. Now I'm using a different fabric for the sides of the house, but you don't have to. If you want, you can make the whole base with one fabric. I just like to combine different fabrics. It's more colorful anyway. You paint the A pattern into the fabric and cut it around like so. No, because I'm making the size from a different fabric. Then I'm going to mark out the joining points where the side in the main piece meat. Now I'm going to cut the sides of the house promised the second fabric that I chose, like so No, because I have two sides of the house. I am folding the fabric into two layers like so, and then I'm going to pain the paper two layers together and cut them out together. Don't repeat my mistake and add some the extra length for their seam allowance for the sides of the house. The next step I'm going to do is joining the sides that I just cut out into the main piece . So I have one Hopis toe work with. I'm using my little marks as a reference and applying right sides facing each other like so and then cleaning and also marking the line that I'm going to sell, which is quite close to the edge and then repeat the same on the other side. I'm going to be a stitching the house together with a sewing machine, but you can definitely stitches by hand. I think it's even easier. I'm using a simple straight stage throughout the project, on blocking it in the beginning, at at the end of every scene, on dressed, sewing closely and carefully next to the edge of the fabric. Like so, then I'm speaking exactly the same on the other side as well. Now all of the stages in the cellar emission this project are going to be very short. If you find it hard to work with the tiny stitches and the sewing machine again, opt for a hand sewing. Sometimes it's much easier flat on your seems open with your fingers, like so and now what I'm going to do is I'm going to mark the floor lines, Justus a reference when I designed the sides off the house. So I'm going to cut out the little sections that are datalink character to my house, which are the windows and the door remains using my little scraps. For that, I'm just testing out the combinations. If I don't like something, then I will change it with a different type of fabric. Like so once you're happy with your decision, you can penny to place with something pains and move on to the next wall on the next part of the clubs were going to stage the pieces in using running stage. Stay tuned. 5. Step 3: Stitching the details: we're going to stitch the little parts now. You can if you like, stitch the little details with a sewing machine. But I prefer hands teaches for those, and we're going to use just a simple straight stage. Now you can use embroidery, Fred, or even just a sewing thread if you don't have any embroidery threats. Okay, so cut it into the length that is comfortable for you to work with and further thread through the needle. I usually work with long needles and seen about 7 to 10 in size, so you threatened the thread through the needle and tie both ends together in a Luke and past the edge of the thread from one side to the other. Like so, I'm going to be using just two shades of threads in contrasting color because it adds to the authority of aspect. Off the stage is no start from the back and then thread the needle up and down repeatedly, like so manipulating the fabric. Aranda Nido, as I'm doing here. So once you have uploaded a few stages on your needle, you can pull it through, continue in the same manner to stage all the data goes off the house. Okay, I'm going to show you now how to look your thread once you finished in a certain detail, so just threatened Needle very carefully through the top layer of the back. Create a little loop with thread and pull it through, and then you lock your thread and you can cut it out. - Okay , Once all the details, the windows and the doors are so in, we're going to move to the next step of the class, which is staging the house together. 6. Step 4: Stitching it together: Okay, We're going to stage the house together now, and before we do that is one more step if you haven't done it before and it is to cut a piece of the roof like so Now we're going to bring together the edges off the work roof and the walls, and we're going to do it one step at a time. We're going to match this side with the diagonal line off the roof on one side first penny together and sew them together just this little bit. Okay, so now that you staged a diagonal line, you hold a fabric in your hand, the house and you fold the piece off the roof in the middle, Garland to the other diagonal line, like so pin them together and then So that little bit us. Well, and this is how it should be looking like after you sound the two diagonal lines. And now we're going to repeat the same process on the other side of the house. So what you want to do is to make sure you bend the rest of the material away from the sewing machine where you're selling the line and just have the two fabrics that you want to trying together and then you'll be fine. Okay, so by now you have accomplished combining the roof into the diagonal lines off the site. Now we're going to sell the sites together. We're going to do one, 23 on one side and then repeats it in the same on the other side. Only we're going to do, just decides, and we're going to leave open the upper part for turning and feeling with polyester. So OK, so what under it now is combining the sides just like their showed you on the paper pattern . I am holding it between my fingers, applying the sides together, painting with sewing pain so it's ready to be sewn on the selling machine. When you're sewing the sides, make sure you bend the rest of the pieces away from the sewing machine like so. So you end up each time. So in just two layers at a time. Not that I finished putting together one side. We have the other side to intend. No, here. As I said before, I'm undergoing to stage the sides, the two powerless sides, and I'm going to leave the top part open so I can fill the house with polyester like so once you're done with your staging, we're going to turn over the fabric. Gently plan your fingers inside the house and make sure you push your fingers, especially at the corners, so you turn them inside out nicely and in the shape of the homes becomes clear and apparent . At this point, it's a very good opportunity to check if you have any holes or gaps in your seems, and if you do, then you turn it back inside out and fix them. 7. Step 5: Filing and closing: becoming towards the end of this cute little project on the step, we're going to fill out your house with polyester. You need about 3 to 4 times the volume off your housing polyester feeling. You can also fill up your rounds with small fabric scraps. If you have any, that will do a swell. You gotta polyester in with your fingers, especially in guided to the far corners first and fill up as much as you can. The thing is, when he worked with polyester, feeling is there's always room for more. It's remarkable. Always room for more now when you finished filling up your house, it's time to so little opening for the edges inwards, as so bring them together and playing with the sewing thing. Now we're going to close it with a simple, overcast stitch, and we do so by starting from within. So the edge of the Fred will go inside like so, and then you pass the needle through one edge and the other creating a little loop around the edges of both fabric together. Let's have a closer look, like so from one edge to the other, and repeat and just carry on in the same manner until he reached the edge of the fabric. Once you reach the edge of the fabric, you lock your same by threading the needle in the last loop and pulling. And you can do that twice if you like. That said, your little project is done. That's give it her three D three dimensional look from all sides. Yea, now I'm very curious and would love to see your little Premcor Ocean, so don't forget to share it in the project gallery. 8.
