Don't you hate it when you put off trying something because you think it's SO HARD? I feel this way about a lot of crafts, particularly ones where there are pattern pieces. I freeze up when it comes time to cut the fabric. Hence all of my improvisational projects.
Making a simple drawstring bag was one of those things. I couldn't wrap my head around the casing. But last night I became a woman obsessed with making one. So I read many, many tutorials. And found this one to be intriguing. Because no lining? And French seams (another thing I feared)? Yay!
So this morning I gave it a try. This one is maybe 7" square and uses one of my favorite fabrics-- a japanese matryoshka linen. So freaking simple, why did I not try this sooner??? I see many, many of these in my future. So many, that I'm going to give this one away. I'll even fill it with some fun stuff. Just leave me a comment with one of those projects that you've been putting off, or overcame. I'll leave it open until midnight tomorrow (Friday, September 3) Alaska time.
