In-the-Hoop Drawstring Gift Bags

From the emails received, there were quite a few using the corn bags for sachets and other gift items similar to what I had done with mine. Several requests were made for a drawstring type of bag, so this week I created just that in 4 sizes!  These are so easy and quick to make and you have a choice of completing them in the hoop or if you want "taller" bags, complete them on a regular sewing machine.

• Use the 4x4 bags with organza or tulle for sachets and bath salts. Do you like scented baths using whole herbs, but don't like the mess? Use organza or tulle to infuse your bath with the herbs without the mess! When finished, just empty the bag, rinse, dry out and save for next time.

• Use muslin and cotton thread for a re-usable tea bag!
• Don't waste those slivers of soap! Put them in the 5x7 bag and use as a soap saver!
• The 7x12 makes a great wine bottle bag or a child's overnight bag or to keep their things in while in the car. • You're only limited by your imagination!

Interested in saving $$?? There is a 1 year non-recurring St. Patty's Day Special at 
The Country Needle's Embroidery Barn good through 3/19 only.
Happy Stitching!
