Here is my Christmas bag of stitching. Inside are 10 little kits I hope to stitch up quickly for gifts to my family and friends this year. I try to make them something each year. Sometimes I wait too long and it does not get done, but I hope since these are on the small side and easily finished into an ornament that I can get it done. I will take pictures before they are sent off so you all can see them after Christmas.
The bag is 12 inches tall and 8 inches wide. I got it a number of years ago as the holder of a gift exchange gift. It had an open top and I wanted to be able to close it so my kits would not fall out! So I made a casing for a drawstring and added rivets for the strings to go through. OOPS, the rivets went through the casing too (I often learn by trial and error).
Off to plan B. I added rivets all around the top and wove a ribbon through the rivets to create a draw string. I had an old closure thingy off a backpack (I know they have an official name, but I don't know what it is) which the strings go through and you pinch it to open or close it. I then added a crocheted bead to keep the closure thingy from being pulled off. I bet it will make more sense when you see the picture!!
See the black closure thingy?
Happy Stitching Everyone!!!!!
Good Luck on your Christmas stitching! Cute bag too!
