How To Make A Drawstring Bag

  1. 1. How to: make a drawstring bag <ul><li>“ soap saver” tea bag </li></ul><ul><li>kootoyoo…click & stitch </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Some scraps of calico or sheeting, cotton string or ribbon, embroidery floss, quick unpick & a sewing machine. </li></ul>You’ll need:
  3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>Cut your bag strip to size (about 12” x 4”). If you have a pinking blade – use it. It just makes everything look nicer. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Step 3: <ul><li>With right sides together fold your bag strip in half. </li></ul><ul><li>Machine stitch one seam. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step 4: <ul><li>Press the seam open. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 5: <ul><li>Machine stitch a “U” shape 1/8 th of an inch from the seam. </li></ul><ul><li>From the top stitch down about 2” then turn your fabric, stitch a couple of stitches across the seam & come back up the other side. </li></ul><ul><li>This is a little trick that is going to keep everything nice & neat when it comes time to do our unpicking (but we’ll get to that in a minute). </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 6: <ul><li>This is what your “U” shape should look like. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Step 7: <ul><li>Still with right sides together, machine stitch the other side seam. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 8: <ul><li>With the bag inside out turn & press the top down just a bit more than an inch & a 1/4. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to make sure that this fold is a bit deeper than the bottom of your “U” shape so that you can make everything line up nicely. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 9: <ul><li>Turn your bag in the right way. </li></ul><ul><li>Line up the needle with the bottom of your “U” stitching. </li></ul><ul><li>Stitch all the way around the bag. This creates the casing for the drawstring. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 10: <ul><li>Machine another line of stitching about 1/8 th of an inch from the top of the casing. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t miss this step – it keeps everything looking nice. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Step 11: <ul><li>If you’re making the tea bag tag you’ll need to embroider “tea” onto your matching fabric scrap. </li></ul><ul><li>Press with right sides together. </li></ul><ul><li>If you just want a little drawstring bag – skip to Step 16 </li></ul>
  13. 13. Step 12: <ul><li>Mark out your square around your embroidery. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Step 13: <ul><li>With right sides together, machine stitch around three sides of the square shape. </li></ul><ul><li>Be sure to leave the bottom of the square open. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Step 14: <ul><li>Clip your corners. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Step 15: <ul><li>Turn in the right way & set aside. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Step 16: <ul><li>OK. Now we’ve got to make the opening to thread the drawstring. </li></ul><ul><li>Get out your quick unpick & unpick the side seam with the little “U” stitching. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you unpick slowly & carefully between the two lines of casing stitching. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Step 17: <ul><li>Magic! Now you have a nice neat opening through which to thread your drawstring. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Step 18: <ul><li>Using a little safety pin on the end of your string thread it in through the opening & around the casing as pictured. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Step 19: <ul><li>Insert the ends of the drawstring into the base of your square “tea” tag & stitch opening closed. You can add a bit of decorative stitching if you like. </li></ul><ul><li>OR if you are just using ribbon or string without the gimmick just tie the ends of the string/ribbon together. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Finished! <ul><li>The Tea Bag makes it possible to use up all those ends of soaps that seem to accumulate. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Morning Fresh Tissane A beautiful blend of fabric & soap. This tea bag is designed to be left steeping in the shower with the soap inside. Flavour & performance improves overtime. A delight for the senses - this blend will invigorate & revitalise. </li></ul><ul><li>Copyright © kootoyoo 2008 </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
