Etsuko Furuya remains true to her style by creating another beautiful fabric collection that integrates modern and playful sensibility to old world images. Echino Decoro features bold and quirky zebras, birds, stripes, floral and damask like patterns in surprising colors and with a hand-printed like texture.

Etsuko Furuya is known for bold patterns are what you can usually see on her textile art coupled with animated texture and fanciful designs – this collection is no different!

Etsuko Furuya graduated in the School of Textile Design Textile Art College in Kyoto Japan.  Etsuko Furuya used to work in a design company but after gaining years of experience, she then decides go to independent and take her luck as a freelance designer. Furuya loves everything that is related to the textile industry, from creating living spaces down to making accessories, this is the industry where she truly belongs.  The fabric collection of Etsuko Furuya is so wonderful and indeed magical.



She is known for different patterns are used to create stunning pieces of art which is made from high quality materials. Bold patterns are what you can usually see on her textile art coupled with animated texture and fanciful designs. The color of her fabric is also becoming one of her greatest signature which is the use of bright and loud colors laid on neutral background or setting.

 



I decided to carry Etsuko Furuya fabric since each of her fabric design tells story and each design is a piece of art.  One cannot help but be inspired by her magical fabric designs.

Now, let's give it up to Modest Maven's Tutorial:
 
When I was pricing these to make as party favors for my daughter's birthday party, $1.50 per notepad added up really fast, so instead I pulled out my paper cutter and quartered 10 sheets of copy paper to give me a nice little stack for each crayon wallet. And that is why I call this the Easy on the Pocket Crayon Wallet! This wallet is sized just right for us economical moms on the go. Run out of paper? Don't have time to run to the store to buy another note pad? No problem! All you have to do is yank some paper from your printer and cut more :)  Forward march to the tutorial...

Materials:

Outer Shell: cut 1, 7" x 10 1/2" rectangle of quilting cotton, *stabilized with fusible interfacing
Inner Lining: cut 1, 7" x 10 1/2" rectangle of quilting cotton
Inside Pockets: cut 2, 7" x 7" squares of quilting cotton
Tab Closure: cut 1, 3" x 3" square, *stabilized with fusible interfacing
Snap or Velcro closure

*Note: you only need to use interfacing for quilting weight cottons. If you decide to use canvas or heavy weight fabric you may omit using fusible interfacing.


Step 1: Cut your pieces. Use a rotary cutter and cutting mat if you have them to ensure nice, straight edges. Otherwise, measure carefully and cut your pieces with scissors. Here are all the pieces:

 


Step 2:  Stabilize the back of your Outer Shell piece with fusible interfacing. Set aside.


Step 3: Make the tab. Stabilize the back of your 3" x 3" square piece with fusible interfacing. Fold in half and sew the top and side using a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving bottom open. Clip corners, turn right-side out, press and top stitch. Set aside.



Step 4: Make the pockets. Fold the 7"x 7" square in half and press with hot iron. Repeat for other pocket piece. On only one of the pocket pieces you will use the iron to make creases to indicate stitch lines for your crayon dividers. So on one pocket, fold in half again and press. Now measure 1 1/2" from your center line and make another crease to the left of the center crease. Repeat for third crease on right of the center crease. You should have three crease lines on one of your pockets.




Step 5: Attach the pockets. Lay each pocket on the right-side of short ends of the Lining piece. Make sure the pressed folded sides face each other, and the unfinished edges are flush with the Lining edge. Pin in place and stay-stitch along the sides of the pocket using a 1/8" seam allowance. Now use your crease lines as guides to stitch the crayon dividers.



Step 6: Attach tab. Center the tab on the center crease line of the crayon pocket. Stay-stitch in place using an 1/8" seam allowance.



Step 7: Attach your fastener. Whether you are using a snap or Velcro, it is easiest to attach before sewing the outer shell and lining pieces together. On one short end of the Outer Shell piece, position your snap or Velcro piece centered and measure 1 1/2" in from the edge. Attach or sew in place (on the right-side of Outer Shell fabric).



Step 8: Lay the Outer Shell piece and Lining/Pocket pieces right-side together (Snap/Velcro should be on the opposite end of the tab). Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew around entire rectangle, leaving a 2 1/2" opening for turning at the bottom of a long side. Clip corners and turn wallet right-side out. Press well with hot iron, folding in the opening and pressing flush with the wallet edge. 


*Note: Take care not to iron over snap or Velcro.



Step 9: Finish the wallet by topstitching around the entire wallet using a 1/8" seam allowance, closing the 2 1/2" opening. Attach the opposing snap or Velcro piece on the tab.

  

Step 10: Cut the paper, add some crayons and you're good to go!

 

♥  Fantastic Job!
