Dotty A4 and A5 Planner Cover with Organiser Pockets
The Dotty Folder is a custom sized cover for A4 and A5 folders. It includes four pocket additions on the inside covers. Two large slip pockets, a post it pocket for two sets and a three pen pocket. These covers give you a great opportunity to create plush, attractive folders and planners which express your personal style and originality.
We originally designed these for ourselves for our personal planners and work diaries etc. We have added planner inserts to the A5 size to create a gorgeous personal planner at a fraction of the cost of some of the ones available on the high street. We have used the A4 size to store all our favourite pdf patterns. These would make great gifts for students, professionals and children. Go crazy and create themed folders for yourself or make some quick gifts.
Some of the features we like best is the opportunity to show off our originality. And with the vast variety of planner inserts and printables available on line you have the chance to make a completely themed planner exactly as you would love.
This is a relatively simple make, we have included guidance on how to adjust the size if necessary. The main skills needed to make this is top stitching and ironing hems for the floating pockets. The rest is straight sewing.
The main pattern pieces have points indicated for where to resize if needed. The arrangements of the pockets has been suggested in the pattern but you can change these to fit your needs. You might want two sets of pen pockets for example or you may want to divide the post it pocket into smaller divides for crayons. If you are unsure we would suggest you go with our layout for your first make, once you are hooked you might add in your own pattern hacks to create even more of a unique item. There is enough space to play with on the panels and we love doing fussy cuts for the top pocket layers.

This is a first for us. We wanted to make a PDF pattern that a complete newbie could sew but could also be used by an experienced sewer to make a more challenging version. All of them are a useful size, have feature panel and give plenty of opportunities to be unique. There are three versions of this bag.
Version One is aimed at somebody new to sewing. Every step is clearly described and all terminology explained. Whilst making this pattern you will learn how to sew a straight line, how to finish off threads at the beginning and end of a seam. How to understitch and why you would want to. How to insert a lining with a pocket and finish it off inside.
Version 1 Beginner
Version Two introduces the sewer to piping and wadding. The instructions include how to make piping. You will also learn how to box corners out and give your bag a more three-dimensional look. The lining on this version includes zip pocket as well as a slip pocket.
Version 2 Imtermediate
Version Three this bag includes all the techniques from the first two bags, with the addition of a front outer pocket with tassel, a zip closure to the top and inside a pocket with an inset zip and a security loop for keys. The key loop allows you to hook your keys on with a trigger clip and then easily retrieve them no matter how full your bag is by pulling in the strap.
Version 3 Advanced
SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Width 38cm Height 30cm Depth 7cm

New to our store on Craftsy The Jill Bag.
The Jill Bag is a stylish shoulder bag with two feature zip pockets on the front and a feature panel on the back. It has two internal pockets one with a zip and one left open that can be divided to suit a phone, pen, nail file, mirror or whatever you need.
The ideal fabric for this bag is a firm woven fabric with an even weave such as cotton. The grey and gold design shown has a main body of cotton fabric with a feature pocket fabric by Robert Kaufman. It has contrast leather piping and brass zips.
The style of this bag allows you to make different choices and create a unique item. Make the pockets from a great contrast fabric. The piping gives another area for contrast and detail we have used imitation leather on one of the samples and stripey on the other.
If you want to give your bag a professional finish you can invest in up market 'bag furniture' e.g. metal buckle loops and brass zips. These can give your bag that 'shop bought' look.
