Some of you have been following this sewing blog for a long time… long enough to hear about all the things I’ve sewn for the holiday shop at my kids’ elementary school. I have sewn wrist strap keychains, yetis, and potholders in the past.
This year I decided to make hot cocoa gift bags.
Update: The tutorial is ready! Click here to see how to make these cute Hot Cocoa Bags in 2 different sizes.
This little bag is actually big enough to fit the mug too!
I still need to make more (I promised the school 30), but I think the next time I sit down to make them I’ll make smaller bags - just large enough to hold 2 or 3 hot cocoa packets.
This drawstring bag design doesn’t require button holes, and it has boxed corners - because I think they’re cuter that way!
Would you like to make hot cocoa gift bags like mine?
Let me know in the comments below if you’re interested in a tutorial - and if you’d like to see the bigger size (like the ones above) or smaller drawstring bags that fit just a few hot cocoa packets.
And now it’s time for you to show off! What have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see. Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Sew up this beautiful quilt faster than you think! It uses a super-quick log cabin piecing technique plus 2 1/2’’ strips so its jelly roll friendly too.
It took me an extra week to complete (blame Summer!), but I finally finished my prototype Triple Zip Bag!
This was the U-Pick Project that you voted for this month, and I’m so excited about how it turned out!
This week I received a darling bundle from Penny Rose Fabrics...
Remember this? My Pretty Quilted iPad case that I promised you a sewing pattern for so so long ago? Well I finally have it ready!
Be a sewing superhero who can sew sleeves on dresses!!!
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
When I got these gorgeous canvas fabric prints that look so awesome together, I knew I had to make a bag that showed off two prints at the same time. This is a big sturdy tote bag that's perfect for taking to the beach, yoga class, or just to the grocery store. There are pockets on the inside and lots of room too.
