Sew Along: Lined Drawstring Bag Video Tutorial

Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Happy Wednesday! It's time for the second week of the Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along! This week's post is a full video tutorial of making the lined drawstring bags. This video has been requested many times over the year, and I'm glad to finally have it available to you all. I hope it will be helpful!

I do have one small disclaimer: I am not a professional videographer, and this video is far from perfect. There are a few abrupt cuts and the angles aren't always the best, but I tried my best! :)

In the video I make an Everything Size bag (same as the tutorial size), from start to finish. You'll need to have either the tutorial or pattern handy when following along with the video:

Happy Sewing


  1. Lovely bag thanks for showing how to make it. I’m so glad I found your website, there’s so much to have a go at.
    Do you think the bag would work with a waterproof or wipe clean fabric to use as a wash bag?

  2. Terrific video! Thank you for taking the time to do it. I’m a visual learner, so it helped me immensely. Especially the tip on how to measure the corners using the 45 degree angle line in my ruler. So that’s what it’s for! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. You probably got lots of feedback already, but here is more....thanks for putting this together...I am sure it was a lot of work. Happy Holidays and to your family as well.

  4. I love this easy to follow pattern, I am teaching my 11 year old granddaughter how to sew and this is perfect. We also make treats to give to teachers at Christmas so this is the perfect way to gift them. thank you
