Make a Drawstring Bag with Sew It

Sew IT

I was not really sure if you wanted to sew it this week as i am sure most of you will be busy celebrating the new year. However i thought i little sewing project wont harm and i promise its an easy one where you can make use for your fabric scarps.

Drawstring bags are great because you could use them for gift giving, organising and they are great to have when you travel. You can make them in various sizes too, so one can really have fun with them!

They are super easy and quick to make especially with this tutorial i found from Happy Things

Drawstring bag

I hope you will be able to join us in sewing this drawstring bag.

I am happy to say that some of the partcipants are getting really good in sewing and might feel that the above drawstring bag is fairly easy and would like a bit of a challanege how bout making  this?

Please note: You dont have to make both of them just choose one of the two :) but if you feel like making them both go for it!
Remember once you’ve completed the tutorial:
  • Take a picture of your finished project

If you have a blog

  • Link the Sew IT button on your blog side bar so visitors know that you are in a sew a long and might want to join the fun :)

    The second pouch looks very different and cute, I would like to try that. I have been unable to do much of sewing lately since my elder son who is in the 10th grade is busy preparing for his preliums, and I need to help him with little little things. But I do hope I can join in this time.

    That’s really cute, I’m going to have to give it a try.

    As a side note, I can’t believe I’ve never visited your blog before. I keep seeing you on the SITS roll call and thinking that I’d already been here. LOVE the blog and your layout is stunning!

    Better late than never…..this is a great bag. I plan to make one, love it!!!
    Will let you know when it is finished.
    I am actually thinking it will go great with the last skirt I made….working on the whole look. This will top it off nicely. After all a little girl needs a drawstring pouch to keep her change in for going to the market!
    Talk to you soon
