How to Make a Drawstring Bag with Chic n Scratch, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Angie Juda

These Drawstring Bags are super easy to make!! And, all you need is two Fat Quarters.

You need three pieces of fabric and I used One Fine Day by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. I love this line of fabric and have stocked piled it for future projects!!

  1. Outside fabric: 11″ x 20″
  2. Lining fabric:  11″ x 10″ (two)

You also need your Basic Sewing Supplies.

  3. I love your drawstring bag. I have a couple of questions. First, I don’t have a Bernina sewing machine – what size seams did you use to make the bag? Second, where do you find the patterns to make the cute things you sew?
    Thank you for sharing your projects (which is taking time away from my stamping) :-). They have inspired me to start sewing again. I made quite a few of the fabric baskets.
