Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Burda Style 6961 Drawstring Bag


Hi pinups! I took a little break from the Minerva Craft Blogger Network whilst I moved house and got my life together. Whilst it completely disrupted my sewing mojo, I'm so happy to be slowly getting back into the swing of things and cracking on with my makes. When I was choosing this project a few months back, I wanted to challenge myself and sew something out of my comfort zone What better way to do that then to make a bag, and a faux leather one at that!

Sewing Summary:

Pattern: Burda Accessories Easy Sewing Pattern 6961 Drawstring Hand Bags

Fabric: Plain Soft Faux Leather Dress Fabric Baby Pink

Notions: Hemline Metal Eyelets Kit with Tool Gold

Sewing time: A couple of hours

Modifications: I left out the cording and the stopper

Fit: N/A

Difficulty: Surprisingly simple!

Watch out for: Make sure you use a leather needle on your sewing machine.

Make Again?: I don't know if I need another one, but I'd definitely recommend this pattern!
