Silhouette UK: Fairy Drawstring Bag

Hello, good to see you again! Today’s project features the printable cotton sheets from Silhouette. I have tried cutting fabric on my machine and not had much luck. To be fair I didn’t really persevere, giving up after on attempt. However, this was so easy to do with Silhouettes printable cotton sheets as they have a stabiliser on them making them easy to cut. Whats more, they are printable so if you are like me and not a greater sewer of designs, you can easily print your design and using basic sewing to attach it to your project. With this, I create a Fairy drawstring bag. 

 I originally thought of making a little tooth fairy bag to store a tooth under the pillow. However, I couldn’t come up with good enough saying to go with it….was having some creators block! So instead I went for a larger bag for a little girl to store some precious items in. I plan on sending this on to my little niece. 

Fairy drawstring bag process overview

Make sure you have added your print and cut registration marks to your design space using the page setup panel window. Next insert your chosen design into the design space and position accordingly. You will want to add an offset to the design to allow for space when sewing later on. Position a saying beneath the design and add a box around this. Next, weld the offset and box together to create an outline cut line for the whole design. 

When you are happy with your design, send the item to print and load the media onto your mat. Before sending to cut, remember to do a test cut. I add to adjust my settings quite a bit as the blade was cutting through the fabric and its backing paper! Once it is cut out, pin the design to your bag and fasten with a simple stitch.
