Last week, I launched the first three videos (here, here, and here) in my First Steps series for beginning sewists. This week, I wanted to take a break from the basics and get into a sewing project that is fun and easy for any sewing skill level. In this video, I show you how to make a simple drawstring bag out of one piece of fabric and a few pieces of ribbon.
This technique can be used to make a drawstring bag in any shape and size. Use them for gift bags, makeup bags, quilt bags, or simply little bags to help keep your purse organized.
Did I mention this tutorial will show you how to make French seams? Well, prepare yourself, because they are so much easier than you would expect.
