If you are a regular here, you may remember I made a few linen drawstring bags in my spare time, for friends who were working hard during the pandemic.



Well I’m happy to announce that I have filmed a free tutorial on how to make these cute bags, and it is now available to watch on YouTube.



In the tutorial you will learn:

  • How to piece the exterior bag
  • How to quilt with a quilting bar
  • How to needleturn applique the heart
  • How to insert channels and lining
  • How to insert drawstring ribbon


And not only that, we have made up Tilda Drawstring Bag kits, to make your life even easier!


Tilda Drawstring Bag


The kit includes everything you need to make the bag (except thread) and all the pieces are pre-cut for you so you can get straight to the fun sewing stage!

The fabrics are Tilda (base, lining and channels) and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (outside).  There are 20 different Tilda Fabrics for the base and 2 different Tilda fabrics for the applique hearts.

We even pre-cut freezer paper hearts ready for your needleturn applique!

Don’t you think the kits would make a sweet gift for a sewing buddy?

Of course the channel has to be a cute Tilda (Tea Towel) Stripe and a linen ribbon drawstring compliments the rustic character of the bag.

The kits are available to purchase here.


I love making these bags, especially using my favourite fabrics!  I hope you enjoy making them too!


Happy sewing!

  1. behind already, and you have only just started this collaboration. I set out on Wednesday, as I promise myself, to make this, but fell down the rabbit hole of sorting out my scraps. Hoping to get this made over the next few days
