Sew Away Don’t Throw Away: DIY Plastic Free Ideas

Step 1. Make your pattern

Take one of the sheets of paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Glue the other sheet along that centre line. On the right edge, measure down 6 cm and mark. This is your marker for where the drawstring goes.

Step 2. Cut your fabric (using your pattern)

Fold your fabric, right side to right side, and pin the pattern to the fabric. Don’t forget to cut a notch on the right edge where you marked the drawstring entry point.
