How to make a patchwork cube drawstring bag
Today I write the how to of my cube drawstring bag. It's simple and easy. Please try it!
(1)First of all, prepare the fabrics. You need only one pattern of 4.7 inches square(12cm, without allowances).
For the outside, cut five pieces, four for the sides, one for bottom. I used green polka dot and flower print for the sides, and gingham check for the bottom.
For the inside, cut a piece of square for the bottom, and a rectangle of four squares size( 4.7 x 18.8 inches, or 12cm x 48 cm). Please mark each edge of square to put with the bottom, or the outside fabric.
(I used cotton linen fabrics for the inside.)
And also cut a piece of batting for the bottom.
(2)Sew the outside. Patchwork the side pieces.
When you finish the side, open the allowances and iron it.
Then put the bottom fabric and sew it with the side.
I sew with back stitch a place to make it sturdy.
You made the outside.
(3)Sew the inside. Fold the side fabric in two, and sew the side.
Open the allowance like the outside.
Then put the bottom fabric and batting in piles like the picture and sew it with the side.
You made the inside.
(4)Sew the inside and outside together.
Prepare 4 pieces of 4.7inches (or 12 cm) long lace for the loop.
Put them on the patchworked line of the outside fabric like the picture and sew it.
Put the inside fabric in the outside fabric making the right side inside.
Sew it leaving the space to turn it out.
Turn it out and close the space.
Then, sew the edge line to make it sturdy.
(5)Make the code end.
Prepare four pieces of cotton fabrics of 1.25 inches / 3cm square size(include the allowance). Also cute two pieces of batting as the same size.
I'm sorry these pictures are for the other bag using other fabrics. But please use the same fabric as the outside fabrics.
(two cotton and one batting for one code end)
Put two cotton pieces the right side inside, and put the batting on it.
Then sew three side of it with 0.1inches / 3mm allowance. Leave one side to turn it out.
Turn them out.
Cut two strings as the size of the bag and put it in the loop.
Then, fold the allowance of a code end to the inside and sew it 1cm / 0.5 inches from the corner.
And put two ends of the code in the code end like the picture, and sew it well.
I'm sorry if I couldn't explain well. Please leave a comment if you have any problem or question.
Thank you very much!!!!
