A Drawstring Bag Tutorial. I made a couple of these reversible bags before Christmas for all of the little sock, stocking, mitten, and hat projects I was carrying around, and so many people have requested instructions on how to make them, I have been spurred into action and have made a little tutorial! Thank you, Steph for prodding me on the subject, and Lisa and Veronique for physically forcing me to do it. :)I really threw these together, so it's not a perfect pattern by any means, and if you can think of a better way to do things, go for it.

But here's what I did.Materials: For a smaller pouch, you can use 2 fat quarters, or for a slightly roomier pouch, 2 half-yards (which will leave you a lot left over). The measurements for the roomier version are in parentheses. You'll also need about a yard of ribbon or cord, and you can use a double cord stop for your drawstring, if you like.1.

Techniques

Rice Heating Bag and Removable Cover. Here's a nother tutorial re-post: a rice heating bag and removable cover.

Rice Heating Bag and Removable Cover

Just warm it in the microwave to help relax those aching shoulder muscles. For the removable cover, you'll need: One 12.5"x12.5" (unfinished) quilt block (we used the Sunshine block)One 12.5"x12.5" piece of cotton fabric (for lining) For the rice bag, you'll need: One 12.5"x12" piece of cotton fabric2.25 - 3 cups of rice. Step 1: First we'll make the removable cover. Pin to keep everything in place.

Sew 1/4" from all sides, leaving a 3" to 4" opening on one side. To get a nice, sharp edge, I like to press back the bulky edges of the block. Turn everything right side out. Use a knitting needle or similar to get the corners nice and pointy. Iron your block flat. Pick one side to be the opening of your bag and sew 1/4" (or less) from the edge, backstitching at the beginning and end. Quilt your block as desired. Fold your block in half, making sure that the side you picked for your opening is along one of the shorter sides.

Sacs. Pochettes. How to make a reversible journal cover. Part 1: Measuring 1) Measure the height of your journal.

How to make a reversible journal cover

Add 2cm. We will refer to this measurement as "H". 2) Whilst closed, measure around your journal, from the outside edge of the front cover, around the spine to the outside edge of the back cover. Add 2cm. 3) Measure how deep you want your cover pockets to be. 3/4 of the cover width or more is good. Part 2: Cutting 4) Cut your cover and lining fabrics, both the same size - H x L. 5) Cut your pocket fabric, two pieces, both H x P.

Part 3: Stitching 6) Lay the 4 pieces of fabric on top of one another and pin together like this: 7) Sew each of the sides of the cover and lining fabrics to the adjacent side of the pocket fabric, leaving a gap in the middle of one of the sides. 8) Lay the pieces down flat again, and then sew across the top and bottom. 9) Now for the moment of truth! 10) Finish it off by stitching up the hole, and ironing flat.
