sewing project

NOTE : I no longer promote Craftsy/Bluprint as I used to due to the way the subscription is currently being carried out. I had the issue of cancelling my subscription when the company changed hand and I find that cancelling through calls is inconvenient. However, I do still stand behind these classes I promote and if you are subscribed, you can surely check these classes I recommend on the platform. If you are looking for another online platform to learn craft such as quilting, do check out CreativeBug. It is much cheaper in subscription (subscribe now 3 months for only $5). Thank you.

In this post,  I am sharing with you the tutorial for drawstring bag with handle. Like these ones I made :

 These are perfect for lunch bags, I have made many to gift friends and for myself. They are the perfect size (I have here a tutorial for 2 sizes). They are easy to grab, use and wash. Believe me, my friends love theirs!

Made a bottle cozy with some of the recent fabrics I bought.

I love Bonnie and Camille’s fabric lines. If you are not familiar with them, check some of their fabrics HERE>

I hate throwing jars. I do know that it is not best to use the cap, but I am at this stage just using it and removing the inner part where it has been stained.

Well, I hope to find a new cap that fits soon.

But I have made it to use.. hehe.. some sugar and Coffee in the jar already!

This one is made from Ruby Jelly Roll and Charm Pack + Leggo’s Pasta sauce Jar project.

It was a fun quick sewing project. 

Definitely it was fun to do the free motion embroidery of the words on the bottle cozy.

So many possibilities with this little cozy.

I am thinking small, patchwork block would be cute too. Wouldn’t it?

Still need to remove that label on the jar. I have not yet found the best way to it. The glue is quite strong!

Here they are next to my lovely bundle of fabrics.

[Related & Updated: I made a quilt using that bundle. Check it out HERE>]

Bottle Cozy. Sew a quick project and spruce up recycled bottle


Snaps or ties?

I am still testing which method works better. Snaps or Tie?? Tieing gives better grip though.

However, I am not sure how it will withstand with time.

I do love my little snaps set. If you haven’t got one yet, try this one.

Just love using them in small projects like pouches and stuff.

They are easy to use and makes cuter things super cute!


I did put a batting in the middle in case you are wondering. Just to give it more structure.

Anyway, will see how this goes, will be making more in the future if this lasted on the jars 🙂

Do you use your recycled bottle?

Have you ever made a bottle cozy before?

They are pretty cute to have in the sewing room too – to keep those buttons, and all the little tid-bits organized.
