pattern for the dragonfly and the butterfly.
These bags are pretty useful. I use them for my crochet and tatting projects, and these two are for my mum, who uses them for the game pieces for Rummikin, which is sort of like rummy (cards) and uses tile like mah jong.
So, let's get down to business.
- You will need some fabric and some string for the drawstring. I use cotton rope..
- some fusible webbing. I have used two different types. In the photo I have traced my patterns on the paper side of the webbing.
- some transfer foil. This is not just wrapping paper foil, but is made specially for transfer to surfaces
- An iron and ironing surface
I have cut two pices of fabric 16 x 8.5 inches
Next, starting 2 inches from the top, sew down to the bottom, across to the other side and up to the 2 inch mark as in the picture below
Next, fold the tops down 1 inch and seam to make a channel on the fron and the back of the bag as shown below
next, push the string through to the other side, making sure the end is still at the start
First, cut out the webbing shapes, leaving the paper on
here and fused my butterfly to the webbing side (upside down), then cut it out and fused it above the foil, slightly out of register.
And now we have two games sacks!
