Item details

This roomy drawstring bag could be used for art supplies, swim day, gym kit or even fun days out. The simple sewing together of squares make it ‘scrappy & beginner friendly’ too.
And selecting fun fabrics could mean hours of ‘eye-spy’ fun on long car journeys!

Assumed knowledge: use of a sewing machine, rotary cutter, ruler, mat and quarter inch seams.

Finished size: 15.75” (40cm) x 15.5” (39.5cm)

Best Fabrics: Quilting Cotton. For a wipeable lining use ‘rip-stop’.

Main technique: piecing 2.5” (6cm) squares (112). Scrappy mini charm packs available here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/226930662/mini-scrappy-charm-pack-50-x-25-squares?ref=shop_home_active_16

Step by step photos are included throughout, including how to insert eyelets.
