Made my first drawstring pouch today.
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.
This is great because I like all my bags lined. It's so simple. I can't believe it. The embroidery is my second attempt at satin stitch. This time I just sewed onto the bag fabric.
