Tsuno Tie Bag

Hey there stash lady!

Need a fun project for those left over bits 1 yard and 1/2 yard fabric in your stash? Fabrics you love and can't bear to part with, but just don't know what to make?

The Tsuno Tie Bag pattern + spreadsheet will get you sewing and destashing in no time.

It's a super quick project! Perfect for the beginner or those that want to jump back into sewing. Don't worry about messing up and waste a bunch of cash on expensive fabric, you can use quilting cotton or upcycle old bedding. Learn and practice new techniques like the French seam, double fold hem, edge stitching and mitered corners. Techniques that can be used in many future sewing projects.

It's an great way to turn a rectangle into a fancy storage bag with pointy handles to tie it closed or add a strap and use it as a shoulder bag. Use the bag for storage, as reusable gift wraps, as a diy teacher gift, as a produce bag, shoe bag, project bag to store your knitting, to organize scraps for that future scrappy quilt or as a shoulder bag with the strap.

There is free copy of the PDF pattern in size XXS including the instructions for the basic bag if you sign up for the newsletter on charlottekan.com, but if you want to create custom recipes with the spreadsheet + all the sizes + strap pattern for the larger sizes you can grab your copy here.
