Now, I'm learning to sew in honor of my grandmother. My own personal attempts at sewing, up until now, have been a dismal failure. I think as a child I never had the patience for it. In high school, in the eighties, I took home economics, and attempted to sew a terry cloth jacket. It was ugly to begin with, and I sewed it badly. But now, I love sewing!! I got a hold of a couple of easy beginner patterns and worked my way through them. Each success encouraged me to move on to the next project!
For these drawstring bags, I grabbed several fat quarters, and decided to use recycled white pillowcases for the lining. I was able to get a whole stack of them for .50 a piece, already cleaned and pressed from the local thrift store. I used a pattern from Jeni Baker at In Color Order. I put a link below to her site to get the pattern.
my little workspace!
I have decided to put these in the new shop here that we are constructing here:
They will be available Oct. 12!!
Here is the link to get you started on these if you would like to try them out yourself!
