This lovely gardening project, featuring two jolly sacks for storing and pulling plastic bags, was kindly submitted by Patty Gaugler.
Patty, thank you so much for the great idea :o)
Here is a photo of ready sacks, hanging filled with flower seeds, and an instruction comes below.
- Shiney crinkled beige fabric
- Packet of green rickrack
- ¼ yard of red geranium print fabric
- Cording for top
- Elastic for the bottom
- Live Garden
machine embroidery designs
- Embroidery thread
Sew the two flowers each on beige fabric. Press flat.2.
Cut out each flower panel to be 14 x 18”. Sew them together at one side.3.
Turn up the bottom edge ¼ inch, then turn again ½ inch and sew a hem.4.
Mark a line 4 inches from the bottom, and 2 inches from the top. Sew rickrack over these two lines.5.
Cut a strip of the red print fabric 4 inches wide and about 30 inches long. Fold in half.6.
Sew this folded piece to the top of the beige fabric. Serge over the edge to finish it. Press. Sew a row of straight stitches at the top about 1 inch from the edge. This is for your casing.7.
Thread a piece of elastic through the bottom, pull it to be about 7 inches long. Stitch through both ends to secure it.8.
Sew the side seam, leaving open the first inch at the top.9.
Thread the cording through the top casing as a drawstring. Mine was 20 inches long.10.
Hang this from a kitchen cabinet knob and store your plastic bags in it. You can stuff them in the top and pull them out the bottom.
