Announcing the 2022 Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along!

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

It's time for our annual Lined Drawstring Bag Sew Along! This is the third year of this sew along and I hope you'll join in! 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 16th and will run for four weeks! There is a dedicated sew along page, which I'll update as we go along. For now it has all of posts from the previous year's sew alongs!

Just like in years past, this sew along is going to be casual and no-stress. Full schedule of posts will be up next week! I'll share an informational post or tutorial each week plus the bags I'm making for my personal use. 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 11/18/22. Prices are already marked down. Shop here:

Don't forget to pick up some supplies while you're at it! The shop is stocked with lots of different cotton twill tape options, nylon paracord and wooden beads. Shop here:

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

Happy Sewing!


  1. I'm IN :) I haven't been in the sewing room for months now but I'm ready to get back down there - I already have the pattern and the expansion pattern and a bit of a collection of fabric downstairs *ahem* so I'm ready to get cracking! Can't wait :)

  2. Going to join!! Sounds fun!😁
