Annoucing a Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along!

Friday, November 6, 2020

I've shared many times how much I love to use these bags to wrap gifts and with the holiday season upon us, it's a great time to build up a stash of gift bags! I thought it would be fun to close out this crazy year with a sew along. The Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along is officially kicking off on Wednesday, November 18th and will run for four weeks!

It's going to be casual and no-stress, just a reason to sew together. I'll annouce more details next week, but it's going to be pretty simple. I'll share an informational or tutorial post each week along with the bags I'm planning to make along the way. Participating is easy, we'll be using the #lineddrawstringbag hashtag on Instagram to share our progress. Not on instagram? That's okay! Feel free to sew along and if you'd like share your bags with me via email!

Sew from the free tutorial, the pattern or the expansion pattern! Both patterns are 20% off now through 11/20/20. Prices are already marked down. Shop here:

Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern
Lined Drawstring Bag Expansion Pattern

It may not be on sale, but it's a good time to pick up some cotton twill tape too: Cotton Twill Tape

Thank you for your continued support. Can't wait to sew bags together!

Have a Great Weekend!


  1. I love making your drawstring bags! Such a great choice for reusable gift wrap!!

  2. I love this idea Jen! I think I already have the pattern somewhere. I will have to check my stash of your patterns. Is there any coats otherwise? Following along with your tutorials will help me make some. Thanks!

  3. I love your original drawstring bag tutorial. I have been wanting to make thes expansion bags for a while. This will be a perfect motivation to help me get some made for Christmas gifts!

  4. Quelle bonne idée, avec beaucoup de plaisir !

  5. The links to you pattern and the expansion pack is not working, at least for me.

    1. That's strange, I just double checked them and they are working okay on my end! I'm not sure why they aren't working for you. They can both be found here:
