Bag-Making Basics: Drawstring Bag & Bucket Bag »
InstructionsI had a heck of a time with the drawstring (getting it turned right side out). I may just buy some cord next time.
I printed out the name and pinned it in place then just embroidered over it. I found this easier than having to trace the letters. I just carefully removed the paper when I was done. I also added fray check to all the embroidery knots so they'll stay put.
Type of item: Functional
I had 1/2 yard of the "Boyd's Bears" fabric which I fussy cut to show off the bears.:-) The solid pink and the floral lining fabrics were also from my stash. Another project that cost nothing to make.
What was your inspiration?
The cute teddy bear fabric.
What are you most proud of?
My hand embroidery. I was going to cheat and use my Singer monogrammer but it wouldn't cooperate. Might be broken.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun choosing the perfect fabric for your recipient.
