Zakka #19 -- Only 5 more projects to go!
This week's project is -- "Sweet Sugar Cookie Sack" -- and it is a cutie!
My version of the cookie sack.
This project was desinged by Amy Sinibaldi from http://nanacompany.typepad.com/. It included a few skills that always test my comfort level (like embroidery), beading, and the blanket stitch. Even so, it was a fun project. I changed things a bit from the pattern by lining the bag and did a self binding on the top with the lining fabric. The book suggested stuffing the bag with fiberfill and tying it with a ribbon. Because I wanted to use the bag for storage, and figured any children playing with it would putting cookies in and out, I figured the lining would give the bag durability. I used a linen (it's a scrap piece -- may not be linen, but looks like it!) beige for the bag outside, and a fabric from Paper Dolls by CPdesigns for the lining.
Mmmm...wish they were real. I'm getting hungry for a cookie!
