Step 1: Materials & Tools
- Fabric A (exterior)
- Fabric B (lining)
- Drawstring (yarn also works)
- Tailors chalk (or any other tool for marking)
- Safety pin
- Other Sewing notions
Step 2: Cut & Measure Your Peices
Exterior & Lining (bag body) - 11 X 5 inches
Exterior & Lining (bag bottom) - 5 inch circle
Drawstring - 15 inches. To figure out the dimension you can lie your string on top of a piece of the bag body (that is flattened out) Its good to make it bigger because it can always be cut down.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Take the exterior bag body and fold it in half. Take some chalk and mark an inch from the top edge. Make another mark a half inch below the first mark. Next pin the bag and sew! Sew until you come to the first chalk mark and cut, then continue at the second chalk mark. This little hold is going to be where we insert the drawstring.
Take the lining body piece, fold in half then sew.
To both exterior and lining attach the circle to the bottom. (Note for the exterior the bottom is the opposite side of where the drawstring hole is!)
Take assembled exterior and turn right side out. Keep lining inside out. Place the exterior inside of the lining. Pin along the top edge, leave about two inches open and sew. Pull the bag inside out through the two inche hole. If its stiff you can iron it out a bit to make it nice and crisp. Pin up that little two inch hold and fold the raw edges so they are hidden. Sew a top stitch along the top edge. Next find the drawstring hole, pin along the bottom hole and sew around again.
