Hello! I’m doing another post for this project, a Drawstring bag! This is super easy and I goanna show you how to do it.
This is super cute design fabric. I bought it at Spotlight, Cotton and I super love the printing designs! AWWW.
I will defiantly just go back again and again to buy those super nice and cute fabrics prints!
I do found some online too! but they are all Pre Cut Printed Craft Fabric, suitable for small projects like pouches, mini bags etc.. Check them out! You might get what you want too! It’s best to try it with small portion 🙂
Prepare 2 piece of main fabric which is the body of the bag, Go with the size that you want it to be, can be a square or rectangle shape.
Face the fabric wrong side to wrong side to each other.
Mark out 2 Inches from the top corner side, then leave 1 Inch gap. same to both side. This is to insert the string to the hole later on.
Pin both fabric in place if you want to then sew from the 2 inches down, Skip the 1 Inch gap and sew down continue.
*Remember do not sew the 1 Inch gap. If you sew you won’t be able to insert the string in.
After sewing, turn it right side out, and will look something like this.
Turn back inside again, Iron flat the side first so that when you can see the gap nicely and easy to fold and insert the string later.
This is the 1 Inch gap, you will have a gap in the middle of both side.
Once you Iron, we goanna do the box up shape.
Turn it wrong side out. Right at the end of the tip, place it flat like a triangle shape.
Measure a 2 inches, Mark out a line and Sew. This is up to you depends on you want the pouch to be big or small.
Trim off the excess and will looks like this. Do it for both sides.
Now lets do the top part. Which is to insert the string in. But first have to iron and press the fabric. This is to have the mark line and easier to sew down the edges.
Fold an 1/2 inch, Iron and Press then Sew it. Then fold another 1 inch until you see the side is open as the picture shown. The hole here is to insert the string in.
**I know this part a bit hard to understand here. But do ask me any questions, I will be glad to assist you if I can. 🙂
The last step is to insert the String. You can use either String, or Bias Tape or even ribbons it’s up to you to decide. 🙂 For Bias Tape, You will need about 12mm wide. Mostly will be 3 yard long.
Prepare 2 String with the length about 20 Inches maybe. I advise to prepare as long as you want so can trim it off later on. Use a Safety pin, pin on the string
Slowly Pull thru the hole until back to the same side. Same for both side. So each side will have 2 string.
There! And you are done!
You can add designs or DIY to the pouch if you are using plain fabrics. But I prefer to use printed ones. It’s looks kind of cute thou. ^^
Hope this helps you! Feel free to ask me questions!
I will be doing a tutorial soon, will update right here. Do check it out!
