Sewing has been sporadic as of late here at Threading My Way. My motivation is back, but time is not always on my side, both for sewing and blogging. So, a quick post today to show you some drawstring bags I recently made.
I used my small gift bag tutorial, enlarging the size of the cut fabric to 11" x 13", and boxing the corners to 1½"
All up I made 13 bags in multiples of the fabrics above.
I'll pop various toiletries into each drawstring bag to be part of a larger project for It's in the Bag. Basically, I try to purchase goods on sale throughout the year, plus sew a few items to put into large bags for disadvantaged women. The collection's not till November, so I'll give you more details closer to the date.
Last year I made up bags for three women. This year I'm aiming for seven. I'm almost there.
Good on you for your charitable sewing, even when time's at a premium, Pam. If I could handle sewing the same things over and over, I might be able to match your generosity.ReplyDelete
To answer your question, though, I must admit that the only drawstring bag I use is my shoe bag.
Clearly your idea of not doing much sewing and mine are different Pam! I would be delighted to have produced 13 of anything :)ReplyDelete
That's so lovely, I bet your gifts are really appreciated. You are so thoughtful.ReplyDelete
