Last week, I have found an old, fairly ugly pillow cover – and finally decided to make my own cloth bags.
I previously refused to buy fabric for this purpose, as I knew I would sooner or later find something in my home that will do well as a bag (I thought about my t-shirts at first, but the pillow cover is perfect for the purpose). I searched around the internet a bit and found a very good and sufficiently easy tutorial on My Happy Crazy Life, and even for me as a non-sewing person, it was more than simple to make these bags!
I’m not going through all the steps, as they’re explained very well on this blog, but I took pictures of each of the steps I went through. I didn’t have a sewing machine, so both bags took me a few hours each. It’s a very relaxing thing to do though, and I enjoyed doing these on my own.
Have a look:
I’m planning on make some more, bigger and smaller ones. I have one more ugly pillow cover to use. Transformed into bags they look a lot prettier!
Let me know if you made yourself some bags, I’d love to see pictures and inspiration!
