Prewash your fabric so it won’t shrink when you wash it!
Here’s the supplies you will need:
Fabric for the bag
Fabric for the Mason jar
Twine or ribbon for the drawstring
Double-sided heat bond interfacing (optional)
Pinking sheers (optional)
Print out the Mason jar template at The Creative Goddess. Pin it to your fabric and cut it out.
Cut the fabric for your bag 19 x 9. You will fold the fabric in half, and that will be the size of your bag.
Use pinking sheers to cut the top and bottom edges.
If you’re using double-sided interfacing, iron your Mason jar fabric to one side of the interfacing.
Place a piece of parchment paper over it before ironing.
Fold your bag in half, wrong sides together, then fold the top down about 1-1/2 inch. Position your Mason jar in the center.
Be sure to measure each side so that it’s centered.
Pin in place.
If using double-sided bonding interfacing:
Unfold the bag and iron the back side of the bag over where you placed the Mason jar.
This will bond the Mason jar in place.
If you’re not using double-sided bonding interfacing:
You can just pin it in place.
With your bag unfolded, go to your sewing machine and stitch on top of the Mason jar to outline it,
using thread of your choice.
With your bag still unfolded, iron a hem on each side about 1/4 inch.
Turn each top edge down about 1-1/2 inches. Leaving enough space for your drawstring.
First: Take it to your sewing machine and stitch the ends that you folded down 1-1/2 inch in place.
Leaving enough room for your drawstring to fit.
You don’t want to sew over the 1-1/2 inch so that you will be able to run your drawstring through it.
Turn right side out.
Attach a safety pin to one end of your drawstring and run it through the top.
Keeping it one long drawstring.
This is the finished look.
Congratulations! You did it. 🙂
