Announcing the 2021 Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along + a Sale!

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Last year's sew along was so much fun, I've decided to make it an annual event and host another lined drawstring bag sew along this year! These bags are my favorite way to wrap gifts and with the holiday season upon us, it's a great time to build up a stash of gift bags! The Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along will officially kick off on Wednesday, November 17th and will run for four weeks! I've set up a dedicated sew along page, which I'll update as we go along. For now it has all of posts from last year's sew along!

Just like last year, it's going to be casual and no-stress. I'll announce more details next week! 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 today through 11/19/21. Prices are already marked down. Shop here:

New to the shop just in time for the sew along, Nylon Paracord! This is one of my favorite tie materials to use to finish off my drawstring bags. I currently have white and cream in stock. Find it here:

It may not be on sale, but it's a good time to pick up some cotton twill tape too and round wooden beads too. There may just be a bead specific tutorial in the sew along (hint hint!):

Round Wooden Beads

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

Happy Sewing!
