More Patchwork Drawstring BagsMay 3, 2017 / byAnna Graham / Categories : Feeds
I went off on a little tangent with these drawstring bags. Can’t help it! Remember when I made one last year? I promised I’d be making more and I finally got around to it. Sometimes I don’t follow through on those promises but I’m glad I did this time. I used Sotak Handmade’s pattern again, which you can find here.
Busting out the hoarded mini charm pack of Architextures fabric that my friend Rossie sent me ages ago (thanks again Rossie!), I felt like it was the perfect fit for a little get well gift for a friend. I’m filling it up with a little bit of chocolate and sending it on it’s way today. I can’t wait to see how she likes it!
Then of course being curious, I decided to pull out some of my friend Holly’s fabric collection, Brush Strokes and make another! I really love how cheery the colors are and I always love seeing how things look so great when they’re quilted. It definitely feels like some kind of magic. I added some of the beautiful Cirrus Solid (Shadow) that Holly had sent me for when I made her a bucket bag and it looks super sharp. I’m excited to pop this one in the mail, too!
I love making little projects like these and straight lines are always so relaxing to sew. I’m excited about so many projects right now! I can’t stop myself from wanting to start all of them at once. That’s what Spring does to me I guess, it happens without fail every year.
