Learn to Sew an Easy Drawstring Bag - Sewing Kit for beginners

pink unicorn


Sewing kit - make your own easy drawstring bag
suitable for beginners.

Drawstring bags are a perfect beginners sewing project. This one is very easy to make and doesn't take a lot of time, its perfect for anyone who has just received their machine and is starting their sewing journey.

'Sew Make It' run sewing workshops for complete beginners to sewing, and this is what we make in the very first workshop, it's a great easy project. The kits have been designed for you to learn in the comfort of your own home using the same instructions as if you were attending the class.

There is also an option to purchase this kit, with a 2hr 1-2-1 lesson with Judi via Zoom. This can be booked for a mutually convenient time/day. The lesson covers the basics of using your machine; identifying parts of the machine, threading, bobbin winding, tension, different stitches, how to change a needle, etc. If you would like more information on this then please get in touch.

(The lesson can be booked via Craft Courses - see my Get to know your sewing machine 1-2-1 lesson)

It would make a great gift too!

Really enjoyed making this basket. The instructions were really clear. I dont have a sewing machine so did it all by hand and it still turned out fantastic. Would recommend this project. Cant wait to do another one.
