How to Make a Drawstring Dog Print Bagcomments (2) February 26th, 2009
Uh-oh, it's time to walk the dog again. So you do the usual scramble, looking for the leash, some biscuits, a plastic bag, and run out the door, cramming all the stuff in your pocket. Not such a pretty picture. But what if you had a cute little bag hanging by the door to fill with all your doggy walk needs?
This simple little drawstring bag fits the bill perfectly. They're easy to sew and super-cute! And hey, if you don't have a dog, there are a million other uses for a drawstring bag: They make lovely gift bags, they're great for organizing smalls in your bag, they're even perfect for packing shoes in your suitcase!
What you'll need:
- PDF of dog and bone stencil
- Freezer paper
- Cutting mat
- X-Acto knife
- 1/4 yard cotton fabric
- Sponge brush
- Screenprinting ink for fabric
- Fabric scissors
- Stright pins
- Sewing machine and thread
- 4 feet cord or ribbon
- Safety pin
To print on the fabric:
1. Print out the PDF of the dog and bone pattern. Place the printout of the pattern face up on a flat surface. Place a sheet of freezer paper, matte side up, over the pattern. Trace the design onto the freezer paper with a marker.
2. Place the freezer paper on a cutting mat. Cut out the pattern with an X-Acto knife.
