I created different bags for many things.This ideas will entertain and motivate you to create new things. Other ideas are art and craft too.

Potpourri Bag.

How To Create The Bag.

The fabric you need to get. It is call mesh. You need to have some vent to allow the aroma to come out and spread throughout the entire closet. You need to decide how big you want the bag, and what colors are your favorites. Then, you need to get ribbons to secure and decorate the bag. Remember, you need to get the thread color that it will match the ribbons. You are going to sew on the top of the bag.

Materials And Other Implements.

1 Mesh fabric.

2 Ribbons.

3 Needle and thread.

4 Sewing machine.

5 Scissors.

6 A bag of potpourri.

7 Ruler.

8 Pearls

Creating The Bag.

Easy Steps To Create The Bag.

1 You can measure the fabric by calculating the inches of the bag size, or you can measure the fabric with the ruler.

2 After cutting the piece of the square shape.You need to pin it. Do not use many pins, so it is easier to pull them out of the fabric while you are sewing be square to create the bag.

3 Carefully insert the material under the needle of the sewing machine. Then, you need to sew the fabric until you have a complete open sack.

4 Add the potpourri inside the bag. Then, you need to break the potpourri inside the bag. After, the bag is full. You need to close the full bag with the ribbon on top.

5 After the bag is finished. You add a small flower with a few pearls on top of the flower to give the flower a decoration.You need to create the flower with the same ribbon and you need to sew the flower by hand with the needle and a thread.

6 Finally, the end, you need to cut small pieces hanging around the bag to have a perfect finish project.

How To Cut The Fabric.

Where To Find The Materials For The Project.

There are a few places where you can buy your materials. The first thing you need to do. You make a list of the things you need. Walmart has a variety of fabrics and other supplies for your bag. Also, Michael's the crafts store. Joan Fabric has many fabrics too.

Other suggestions For The Workshop Room.

It is better to be alone while you are creating. Concentration is important. Keep your workshop clean and save. Allow yourself enough time to finish your bag. After you finish your bag. You need to clean your place like nothing happens without living a trace. This will prevent accidents with your children or your pets if you have them. If you are by yourself. You need to clean after in case you drop a pin. I hope you enjoy doing your bag of potpourri.

Ready To Give For Any Occasion.
