Personalised Party Bags

It's my daughter's party tomorrow and for that occasion I decided to make personalised party bags for her friends. I don't normally bother with making party bags but this time I decided to make them....just because I could. I recently came across this fabulous pattern by A Spoonful Of Sugar called Retro Drawstring Bags ( and was absolutely smitten.

I picked up the brightest and cutest fabric I could find and got to work.

As I wanted larger bags to fit all the goodies in, I enlarged the pattern. My final bag measures approx 7x10in.

To finish it off, I added personalised ribbon with a name (for which I used a stamp and black ink) and added few buttons and bows.

This was so quick to make and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely make some more of these in Christmas fabric.

Back soon.
