DRAWSTRING GIFT BAGS • Beginner Sewing, November 24 (1-4 pm) Saturday$45.00
We love these classic drawstring bags! They are perfect as reusable, long lasting gift bags. We made ours using scraps of leftover fabric in our stash, which you are totally welcome to use. Or get some of your favorite material, if you have something specific in mind. We will provide the pattern for 3 different size bags. You should be able to make quite a few in class.
