Sew Mama Sew's Community Match: Dragon Drawstring Bag

Sew Mama Sew  runs the Super Online Sewing Match where several stitchers compete in a series of projects for top prizes. Part of this is the community match where the blogging community that has been following along can post similar projects and enter to win prizes themselves. If you stitched a dress, bag, pajamas, top, or coat, between June 24 and August 28, you can enter to win! Just add your link to the Sew Mama Sew Community Match Linky party.

Normally I wouldn't have anything to enter but it just so happens that I finished a bag the other day!

This bag was made with a Craftsy Class (Kristin Link's Bag Making Basics: Drawstring Bag and Bucket Bag) and an Urban Threads free standing lace pattern Fierce Dragon.

I am really very happy with this bag and I did make a couple changes to the pattern. Because I was going to use free standing lace as a decoration, I opted for reinforce the front with medium weight fusible interfacing.

I also decided not to make my own drawstrings and instead used some drawstring that I had on hand.

My favorite part about this bag is that the wings of the dragon are movable - how cool is that?

So that is my entry into the Sew Mama Sew Community Match contest. If you haven't already popped over to check it out, you should. There are some really great entries. Better yet, enter yourself!


  1. Very nice! Even though you reinforced the front, it still has a very soft look to it.

  2. Beautiful! Good luck in the contest :-)
