Sewing With Gingham - Sewing The Cross Stitch Double Drawstring Bag

Follow along as Amy shows you how to make the Cross Stitch Double Drawstring Bag! Re-purpose or recycle a gingham apron that has a cute embroidered pocket or bottom border into this fun project bag! Great way to preserve a precious piece of handwork! Or use purchased gingham fabric, like our Gingham and Cross Stich Pixie Pack. Then add your own unique cross stitch embellishment, and create something with a vintage feel!

Finished size is 8” x 10” but can be made any size with a few measurement adjustments.

Material List

• Two skeins of the same color embroidery floss- one for each drawstring or 12 wt. Sulky Thread (alternate option)

• Electric hand mixer – attach just one of the beaters!

• Scissors
• Four pearl buttons • A friend to help!!

NOTE: Embroidery floss is made up of 6 individual strands of floss. For this cord, do NOT separate the individual strands – treat the floss as one complete strand.

Alternate thread option for making cord from spooled thread: Six strands each 78” long to make EACH cord. We recommend Sulky® Crossroads 12 wt. thread. (This creates a thickness and length similar to skein of floss.) Then follow floss instructions.
