Scrappy drawstring bag

É o meu primeiro tutorial.
Já tentei publicar esta mensagem umas cinco vezes
mas corre sempre alguma coisa mal! Espero que seja desta.
Está em inglês porque é para um concurso
promovido pelo site sew mama sew. Aqui vai!

You’ll need:
. six rectangular scraps ( whatever size you want)

. one rectangle of coordinating fabric for the interior of the bag
. two pieces of string

Start by sewing all the scraps so you’ll get a big rectangle
(mine was about 26x8 inches).

Press and top stitch all seams.

Then put the inside lining facing the outside rectangle and sew on the top en bottom.
You’ll get a kind of cylinder.
Fold the cylinder: outside fabric goes one way, inside one goes the other,
like in the picture bellow.
Sew along both sides of the fabric but make sure
you leave two openings on both top sides of the outside fabric,
like in the picture, to put the strings.

You must leave another gap in the inside lining
so you can turn the bag inside out.


And this is what should get.


Press again and sew around the bag abut one inch from the top.


Now you’ll need the help of a safety pin to put the strings in the top opening.
You have to do this on both sides. Tie a knot at the raw edges of both strings.


And you’re done. Enjoy!
