Inspired Project #5: Drawstring Petal Pouch

Drawstring Flower Pouch

Today I have a fun and pretty sewing project that would make a lovely gift—although, I want to keep mine because I am going to use it as a jewelry holder. Another great idea: make a dozen or so and use them as party favors at a bridal or baby shower!

How will you be using yours? (Please share in the comments below!)

For this project you will need two 12″ squares of cotton fabric and some ribbon or elastic cording + 2 small beads (optional).

This is a photo tutorial. Simply click on the first image below to begin and then click on the enlarged image when you are ready to move to the next slide. The written instructions are in the caption field; but, I bet you can sew this just from the photos. Let me know what you think and be sure to share your project photos on Instagram with the #sewspire tag.

Inspired Project #3: Cord Keepers

Happy Friday! For this week’s Inspired Project I would like to show you how to sew a set of cord keepers which you can use to organize charger cords and ear buds / head phones. This sewing project is fun, easy and economical as it only uses tiny bits of fabric, a smidgen of batting and a wee bit of hook and loop tape. If you enjoy this project please comment below and let me know! I would also be so grateful if you would share this blog with a friend who is interested in learning to sew. Thank you for tuning in and for supporting me on this personal mission to teach and inspire 10,000 women to learn to sew. I hope you have a beautiful weekend and I will see you next Wednesday with another edition of Inspired Thoughts and then again on Friday when I share a weekly sewing project with you.
