May The 4th Be With You! It is Star Wars Day and oh boy, we have something fun for you. We showed you how to turn your boys pants into shorts for the summer and now we have a project to use up all those pants legs. Check out our Rebel Alliance Pouch tutorial and then make sure to download your very own Rebel Alliance Printable.
I used the printable to make this really cool Rebel Alliance patch. I printed it out on transfer paper following the packages directions and ironed it onto some white muslin.
Grab one of those leftover pants legs and let’s get to work.
Turn the pant leg inside out and stitch along the open end.
Finish off the edge so it won’t unravel. I used my serger, but you could also use a zig-zag stitch.
Attach your patch if you made one, or you could make a freezer paper stencil to add the logo.
Right under the hemline stitching you will either add buttonholes or grommets (like I did) to thread your cord through.
Fold the hemline to the inside and press, stitch right under your buttonholes or grommets to form your casing. Using a safety pin, thread your cord through the casing.
Make sure to DOWNLOAD your very own Rebel Alliance Printable to make a pouch for your very own little Jedi. There are two sizes in the PDF file for your convenience.
We would love to see anything you make using the tutorial or the printables. Tag us with #sewingwithboys on social media.
