Make a Satin Drawstring Gift Bag

Standard

Rings, earrings or other small jewelry gifts sometimes need more than a small box in which to be presented. Even when giving a gift certificate or gift card, you might want to use something more than an envelope. A braided cotton cord manufacturer provides the perfect touch for a special gift. Satin gift bags are not easy to find, but they are not difficult to make, even if you don’t own a sewing machine.

Instructions

1 Measure and mark a rectangle 15 inches long by 6 ½ inches wide on the satin using tailor’s chalk. Cut the material along the markings.

2 Finish the edges all around the rectangle. This can be done by using a finishing stitch on a Serger sewing machine, or by using a “no-fray” product.

3 Turn the widen textile lace so the wrong side is facing you. Measure 2¼ and 3¼ inches from the top on each of the long sides and mark these points, using tailor’s chalk or a straight pin. This will be the pocket for the cording.

4 Fold the satin so that the right sides of the length are together and the wrong side is facing you. Mark ¼ inch on the sides. Pin the sides. Stitch along the lines on the side until you come to the bottom pin. Stop at that point, lift the needle and insert it at the next mark and continue sewing. This will create the opening where the cord will come out of the dragon max velvet pouch .

5 Fold the satin down at the 2¼ mark. Iron this fold and pin the fold to hold it in place. Measure and mark a line ¼ inch from the bottom edge of this fold. Measure and mark 1 inch from the first line. Stitch along both lines. This creates the pocket for the cord to threaded through.

6 Turn the satin bag so that the wrong side of the material is inward. Check the openings on each side for the cord. If they are sewn too close together, use a seam ripper or the tip of the scissors to remove one or two stitches to enlarge the opening.

7 Make the drawstring for the satin bag. Cut two 14-inch lengths of cording. Insert a small safety pin in the end of one length of cording and close the pin. Thread the pin and cord into the opening on the side of the bag, and work it through to the other side of the bag. Repeat with the other length of cording on the other side. Place both ends of the cords on one side and tie them into a knot. Repeat on the other side.

Make Cloth Gift Bags

Standard

According to Robert Lilienfeld and Dr. William Rathje, authors of “Use Less Stuff: Environmental Solutions for Who We Really Are,” Americans produce an extra one million tons of trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Much of that is wrapping paper, tape, ribbon, and cardboard. Switching to reusable cloth bags instead of professional satin gift pouch can put a big dent in all that waste, preserving trees for better uses, such as preventing soil erosion, serving as wind breaks, and providing needed oxygen to the atmosphere. Make a commitment to have a “green” Christmas this year and to have all birthday, anniversary and wedding gifts wrapped in cloth gift bags.

Instructions

1 Thread sewing machine. Be sure to use cotton thread with cotton or natural fiber cloth and synthetic thread with synthetic or polyester cloth. Decide what size gift bag you wish to make. Most nonwoven bag factory will fit in a bag that is 12 inches wide by 18 inches tall or smaller.

2 Cut a piece of fabric twice the desired width of your bag, plus one inch more than the desired height. If you want a bag that is 15 inches wide by 15 inches high, you will need a piece of fabric 16 inches by 30 inches.

3 Fold fabric down one inch along the top edge of the long side. Press with a steam iron to make a casing. Stitch fabric with sewing machine, 3/4 inches from the folded edge using a straight seam. Back stitch once or twice at the end of the seam to ensure it will not unravel.

4 Fold fabric in half with the good side facing inward. The unfinished bag should now be 15 inches by 15 inches. Stitch a double seam, 1/4 inch apart, along the bottom, with the lowest seam 1/4 inch from the bottom edge and the upper seam 1/2 inch from the bottom edge. Repeat double seam up the side, stopping when you reach the casing.

5 Thread the satin ribbon through the casing. Fill the China silk gift pouch with gifts, pull cord tight, and tie it in a large bow.

Just as you can use reusable shopping bags to reduce waste, you can also sew your own gift pouch. Beyond being environmentally-friendly, sewn gift pouch stand out from the crowd. Cotton solids and prints work well for PVC gift pouch, but you can also experiment with other types of fabrics. Look for a ribbon that compliments the fabric.

Instructions

1 Mark off a rectangle, 18 inches by 15 inches. Cut out the rectangle.

2 Fold one 15-inch edge down three inches and pin. Sew close to the fabric edge and remove the pins.

3 Fold the ribbon in half and pin it on the right side of the fabric so that it runs parallel to the line of stitching you made in Step 2. The fold of the ribbon should be along the raw edge of the fabric.

4 Fold the canvas bag in half lengthwise with the right sides facing together and pin. Keep the ribbon sandwiched between the right sides of the fabric. In Step 5, you will sew over the ribbon to secure it in place.

5 Sew a plain half-inch seam from the top of the folded edge down and across the bottom. A plain seam is stitching that joins two pieces of fabric. The half-inch refers to the seam allowance, which is the space between the stitching and the raw edge of the two pieces of fabric. Remove the pins once you have finished the seam.

6 Adjust the bag so that the side seam and the bottom seam are on top of one another and form a point. Sew a straight line about an inch away from the tip of the point. This will square off the bottom of the bag.

7 Turn the bag so that the right side of the fabric is outside, add a gift and tie the beautiful rayon tassel in a bow to close the bag.
