I made quite many coffee bags and gave them away. This morning, I just played with the linen leftover and came up with new version of coffee bag.
I should make more in case I have to present somebody someday again. 🙂
Finished size: 4inch x 6inch
You need: linen 8.5inch x 6.5inch, bias 1/2inch x 8.5inch, embroidery backing paper, baker’s twine 15inch, pink and brown fabric scraps.
With erasable pen, draw a coffee image on linen. Cut the fabric pieces as the shape of coffee and trivet. Glue on your image.
With sewing machine, sew the outline of the image or hand embroidery.
Instead of pinning, I use double sided tape. It makes my life so easy, you should try.
Fold in half, inside out, sew and zigzag stitch the seam.
Sew the bottom and zigzag stitch the seam.
*as you see, I trim the backing paper after sewing the image.
