So...I don't post for years, and the first thing I do is log a craft project?! Sorry, folks. There have been many things to say, but not words to say them. And I want to save this craft so I can find it in the future. So here it is!
Carrot treat bags. I looked up someone else's tutorial but didn't care for her assembly instructions so made my own. This drawstring is much easier to put together.
I have cut these particular shapes. I pressed them as shown, and please note that one short side of the green fabric is pressed toward the RIGHT side. That will help form the drawstring channel. I have also sewn the long sides of the green fabric. The orange shapes are about 7 inches long, and the green are about six.
I pinned each orange piece to each green as shown, right sides to wrong sides. They overlap about aninch, and the orange fabric is on top on the right sides.
I sewed across the top and bottom of the overlap, staying very close to the edges. My machine has a selection to offset the needle to the right, which helped a lot
Then, right sides together, I joined the two sides, being sure that the points were lined up (and the carrot tops for the most part). I made sure to sew up to where the green and orange fabric joined, but not farther than that.
Fill, tie closed, and enjoy! Using a zipper-closure snack bag made filling easy.
