I faced with many challenges during the process of making the draw string bag, as it was my first time using the sewing machine. Every time I tried to stitch my string on the fabric, the thread continued to fell off from the needle, making it to take much more time than I initially anticipated. After many unsuccessful attempts, I had to try it on a different machine and finally completed stitching aligned to one end. The machine-stitching became more manageable after then, but maintaining a straight line from one end of the bag to the other was rather hard.
Through the project I could experience that even for small items like this bag, with a relatively simple-looking procedure, making them by hands still requires much time and effort; seeing the bag of my own was very rewarding as well.
I ironed the fabric as it was wrinkled
I folded the end and used the sewing machine to make it fixed.
The sides of the fabric were stitched so that it could form a bag shape
The overall look before the bag was inverted inside out.
I tried to measure the appropriate length of the string.
