Appliqued Drawstring Pouch
After I made the monkey drawstring pouch for the barrel of monkeys, I made another one using some scrap jersey. I have a lot of scrap jersey... it's one fabric I cannot part with. I use it mainly for appliques for things like a toddler backpack, or a tricycle bag. Appliques are my thing...
Instead of folding the straps and sewing them down, I ran them through my new serger. I am still a little afraid of my serger and used a 4 thread stitch. I think a rolled hem would have been better but until I learn how to thread it properly, this is what I will do!
The best thing about working with t-shirt jersey is that it doesn't fray so sewing this was even faster!
What went in the pouch?
That stuff is GOLD! I use Healthy Hands since my hands get chapped from constantly washing my hands in the daytime and sewing with denim at night.
Yay again for scrap fabric!
