I want to share with you a little experience sewing ripe banana. It all started with the fact that for a small rural kindergarten, I decided to make fruit and vegetables (life-size) – for developing games and activities. Found on the Internet a variety of patterns, sewed the beets and carrots, small onions and apples.
I really wanted to make a banana, but suitable patterns I have not found. Then, without thinking twice, I took a banana, this one:
Then I clean it, like so:
And ate. There were, of course, the skins. They are something I just needed! I carefully put each of the four skins to a sheet of white paper and looked at the handle. Receiving a brilliant banana templates in actual size. If you would like to help some small kindergarten in the boonies and sew a banana, then simply circle patterns:
Carved patterns to be imposed on white cotton and circle:
Then impose a pattern on yellow fleece (folding, of course, facing each other). It obtained as follows:
It becomes clear that our items are double – fleece top, bottom chintz. You can then shear off and sew on the machine, all but one – the lower, bifurcated at the end. He’s differently cross-linked, like so:
Shear pins and sewn on each part small (approximately three centimeters) hole for wrenching. These holes are best left at the bottom of the details, because the upper part, we will be open.
Gracefully and easily stitched by all the details, then turn helping yourself stick and ironed.
Sew up the remaining holes of yellow thread, very.Nachinaem sews parts of banana from the wrong side. To avoid mistakes during assembly, it is good to have, for clarity, another real banana.
Then it becomes quite clear what and where to sew. Sequentially one after the other, crosslinking parts, leaving about half the length detail above. It is the same distance to the disclosure of a banana.
First I sewed two sides to the top, and then – the lower part. She had a little is gathered that details coincided.
The result was a whole banana peel. It needs to turn on the front side.
And now – in our hands is very similar to the real peel!
It remains to sew inside. This is much faster. Cut the thick white cloth on our part templates. Cut close to the lines, leaving no seam allowance, so that the inner part should be slightly smaller than the outer shell.
Then sew all the parts on the machine, and fills synthetic padding.
Inner portion easily enters the peel and obtained very appetizing ripe banana. I think that the children in the garden like those bright, very similar to the real, fruits and vegetables. However, I have not finished the job. I will sew on – pears, potatoes, garlic …
