One of my girls has a gift exchange next week in school, so I made up this fabric drawstring bag with goodies!
I made a stuffed puppy and bought some chocolates to include with it.
Pam at Threading My Way has a fantastic drawstring bag tutorial here. It is fully lined and has boxed corners at the bottom! These sew up so quickly that it would be quite easy to make several if you needed to. In the past, I have tried to box the bottom of fabric bags but was unable to get each side to match until now. Pam's tutorial is so well written and has wonderful photos to guide you along your way.
And who wouldn't want a stuffed puppy? I have the sewing and pattern book Girl's World, and one of the patterns included is this cute little puppy that is very easy to make....definitely a beginner sewing project if you are new to sewing.
I also made two more fabric bags for a couple of the male teachers at school for their Christmas gift. I will buy some chocolates to fill them with. For the ladies, I am making potholders.
