11/30 • DRAWSTRING GIFT BAGS • Beginner Sewing, November 30 (10-12 pm) Saturday$30.00
These drawstring bags are a beautiful project for those who want sustainable gift wrapping. These bags look gorgeous and can be used over and over, gifted and re-gifted continuously. We whipped up all these sample bags in less than two hours, so you'll definitely complete a few yourself in this short class time. One yard of fabric will make 3 to 8 bags, depending on what sizes you make. Once you get the process down, you'll be able to make bags for all your holiday gifts rather quickly. We like mixing it up and using different fabrics that look good together. Join us in creating an extra special handmade holiday this year!
