Let’s Sew a Gorgeous Handcrafted Gift!

I adore this time of year! All the traditions and matching family pjs, sewing and baking, and giving gifts to my nearest and dearest. I love, love, love to show my special ones I’m thinking about them and I do that with handmade gifts.

This Christmas we have a pattern that is perfect for gift giving… The Drawstring Pouch pattern is a lovely addition to any sewists’ collection, and the sewn up bag is simply amazing! You can use it as sustainable wrapping, as a stocking stuffer filled with treasures, or stuff it full of toys, make up, stationery – or anything that fits! Plus, it’s got a POCKET!

Join me for a super quick sew along and whip up one of these lovely pouches in under an hour! I know you’ll love them as much as we do.

The Drawstring Pouch Mini-Sew Along

The Drawstring Pouch is a beginner-friendly sew and comes in 2 size – small (21 inch circumference) and large (31 inch circumference)

The small is a wonderful pouch for keeping toiletries, sewing supplies, make up, and other goodies neatly organized.

The large is a fantastic for storing toys; it can be opened up and used as a small playmat too. Then, when playtime is over, just pull it closed, tidy the drawstring into he pouch, pop down the flap, and hang it up out of the way!


The Drawstring Pouch Sewing Pattern is a quick sew – less than an hour. Fully lined, the multi-function pouch features a customizable flap, secure fastening, optional internal pocket, and optional drawstring toggles.
