Tulip Key Cozy (with Tutorial)Part 1


One of my friend loves my key cozy, but she is not a cat person. Last week, we went to the Tulip Festival, I got an idea there, make her a tulip key cozy.


Here is how I made it.
Dutchquilter likes my kitty key cozy, and wants to know how to make one, so I took photos when doing this one and made my first ever tutorial. If you want to make the kitty one, just need to change the shape, and that one doesn't need tear-away foundation, all sewing lines are straight.
Since some of the photos were taken at night with flash on, the color turns out a bit weird, but I can't retake those photos, it's all done.

Step 1. Draw a tulip pattern(without seam allowance), the paper is ruled as 4sq/in.


Step 2. Make tops and backs
Using tear-away foundation to make the tops, I didn't have to cut precisely.

Anchor the fabric to the tear-away foundation, wrong side attach to the foundation

sew the trim on,then sew the deep red fabric on.


Repeat the process and make another top, trim tops according to the pattern leaving 1/4 in seam allowance, and tear away the foundation. Using the pattern to cut two backs, leave 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Now we have 4 pieces, two tops and 2 backs
