Christmas are coming soon, so it’s a good time to think about gift packing. Today I’ll show you my way of sewing a drawstring gift bag. I like this method because the bag is lined, which gives a beautiful finish inside and outside 🙂
Below you will find a scheme that will help you calculate the dimensions of a rectangle, out of which the gift bag will be sewn. Remember that it will be cut from a folded fabric, so the actual width of the rectangle must be multiplied by 2.
1. Transfer, onto the rectangle, the lines of the bottom and the placement of the ribbon casing. Sew the sides, leaving an opening on both sides of the casing/tunnel. Press open seam allowances.
