How to Make a Garment Bag : How to Cut Out Letters for Personalizing Garment Bag


This is Vicki Walker for Expert Village. We
are working today on a garment bag and the decoration or the trim that I intend to put
on I have already put on the ribbon. Now I’m adding a letter, the little girl that I’m
making it for her name begins with a D. So I have already cut out, out of one fabric
this one a letter D. I just freehanded a D and cut around it. Then I pinned it to this
blue fabric and gave it a boarder about 1/4 or a 1/2 inch around the edge. Then I’m going
to add one more layer of color for interest. All of these colors are in the polka dotted
fabric so these make a nice interesting contrast to the fabric. So I would pin these down to
the flower fabric and just freehand on long the outside edge. No need to draw a line around
it I would just freehand. Cut all the way around and we would get to the sewing machine
and sew around the edges.
Any sort of fabric would work for this you can use a burlap would be pretty or something
with a more of a weave a loose weave would be interesting as a background for it. Any
other solid color would also work. I have also used felt sometimes for one of the letters
on the top like the letter it self could have been out of felt and then the printed fabric
underneath. But this would make a interesting design on the front and I think my little
girl who’s name begin with a D would enjoy it.
