Drawstring Bags tutorial

Followed DSB Drawstring Bag 101 tutorial at the following webpage:

http://happythings.typepad.com/happythings/drawstrings/index.html

Didn't quite like the result because the casing becomes too tight. I think I should do the side seams first and the top seams last. Did some ripping and redid the top seams. Better.

The applique is done using open toe feet with satin stitch. This is my first attempt at this technique. I did it on a white fabric, cut it out, and sewed using straight stitch onto the bag fabic. Tedious.



Followed DSB 301 Lined Drawstring Bag tutorial at same webpage above.

This is great because I like all my bags lined. It's so simple. I can't believe it. Author should get a medal. The embroidery is my second attempt at satin stitch. This time I just sewed onto the bag fabric.
