A Drawstring Bag



Last night while The Scout, Miss B and Mr J, were all out at scouts, I took myself out to my sewing room, determined to do a little sewing.  Using the  two 6" blocks, I made back here, I decided to make a drawstring bag, for a friend to use as a project bag for her crochet. I used this tutorial from Svetlana of Sotak Handmade.  Her pattern uses fat quarters which would certainly make a quick and easy bag. Mine took a little longer, because I had to piece extra fabrics to the blocks, to get the desired size. I am really pleased with how it has turned out, This is a great pattern and I would definitely make it again.  The bag is not a big bag at approximately 8" x 10", but I think it will comfortably hold a crochet hook or two and some wool.  All going well, this will get posted to it's new home later this week.


What are you making at present?

  6. Ha! It's so funny to me - I skip around the internet favoriting things on Flickr and liking things on Instagram without fully taking the time to think about who made them. I opened your blog today and instantly remembered favoriting these pouches on Flickr. They're fantastic, Julie!
