Additional notes:

  • wash your fabric at 60 degrees and iron it before making it into bags, to pre-shrink/clean it
  • see the video at the bottom of the page on how to lay in ribbons on Step 11
  • some are making deeper bags but I've had this bag's size (approx 48x 52cm when finished) confirmed as great by an NHS nurse
  • Use any fabric that can be washed at 60 degrees. You need a piece 110x50 for this bag (or two peices approx 55x50).
  • The reason we suggest using a random print fabric suggestion is so you don't get sideways hearts/horses /flowers or whatever the print is, as the bags are cut sideways on the fabric!  Stripes are fine as they can go across or up and down : )
  • See bottom of page for fabric ties/straps bag downloadable tutorial if you have no ribbon.
  • Ribbon can be bought online at Fabric Land or other haberdashery

VIDEO HELP for ADDING the RIBBON
Below is a video we made showing the instructions for step 11 - inserting the drawstring ribbons. Sorry it's portrait!

GOT NO RIBBON??
If you don't have ribbon & want to make your own drawstrings you can download this free bag tutorial with self-fabric drawstrings. Or see this Youtube tutorial on turning through straps (cut them 5-6cm wide for this with a half to 1cm seam). Or if you have a bias binding maker set (I got mine inexpensively on Ebay) try this tutorial to make fabric ties
