Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of the drawstring bag I made.

My sewing machine lives in the sideboard, but the foot pedal is always a tangled mess and the plastic bag it came in is really too small for it. So I decided to make it something a bit nicer to live in and help keep the cable under control.

The fabric was left over curtain material from years ago, the cord made from the same fabric. I followed the instructions in the sew what bags book for how to make the casing for the cord and it was quite quick to make. When I get more fabric I’m thinking of making more bags like these but smaller for gadget chargers! The chargers currently live in a plastic box but also end up a tangled mess and takes ages to hunt out the one I want and then ages to untangle it. I’m thinking some kind of tag on the charger bags so I know what they are for ;)

This bag is the same idea as the classic PE bag for school so if you have little uns why not try making one, if not for school then for a place for odds n ends :) How about you, have you ever made one of these? Will you have a go making one this month? Its also a simple project that older children could make for themselves with supervision, so a good one to get the kids sewing.

How about making these in seasonal fabric for an eco friendly version of gift wrapping?

Best wishes and thanks for reading see you soon
