Lined Drawstring Bag Tutorial

Lined Drawstring Bag Tutorial

After doing a tutorial on making a bag or pouch with, French Seam I thought I would take it a step further and show how to make a lined bag that is more visually pleasing.

Some lined bags have the exterior and interior (lining) seam at the edge of the top.  The technique I am showing here has the exterior of the bag continuing to the inside for about 3/4”.  My apologies for not converting to the metric system. I’m old school.

I actually prefer this method for making quick lined drawstring bags.

The French Seam

When sewers refer to a French Seam, they are referring to a seam that is completely encased within itself.  This is a great remedy for fabrics that are sheer, loosely woven or tends to fray or unravel after being cut.
