About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Scruffy Little Kitten - Drawstring Bag

Evening - just popped on with a quick post this evening. The instructions I used for making the bag are found HERE. I changed the measurements slightly, as the printable cotton twill I used was US Letter size - so I worked with 11" width rather than 12".
I printed one of the papers from the CD onto printable cotton twill, cut it in half, and attached it to either end of a length of plain white cotton.
The fabric companion was printed onto another piece of cotton twill, slightly trimmed, and then sewn with a straight stitch onto the white cotton. 
I used a blue/green cotton as the lining fabric - which isn't visible in the photo. Once I had completed the bag as per the instructions (which were really easy to follow - and I love the way the lining is attached), I threaded the ribbon through the top to make the drawstring. 

Like I said - a quick post!! Back in the morning!!
