Christmas Santa sacks to sew - Sew Santa's sacks: free sewing pattern - Christmas stockings - Craft -

You will need

● Bondaweb
● oddments of cotton fabrics
● pinking shears
● glue
● sewing thread
● selection of ribbon and buttons for tree
● 2 rectangles of cotton fabric 80cm x 60cm for sack
● 2 rectangles of cotton fabric 80cm x 60cm for lining

To make the sack

With right sides together, pin and stitch the two sack sections together at the sides and lower edge. Repeat for the lining. Press 1.5cm onto the wrong side around the top of both the sack and the lining. With the sack right side out and lining wrong side out, insert the lining into the sack. Pin and stitch the two pieces together around the top edge.

To decorate the sack

Draw a Christmas tree motif about 40cm tall and a pot about 10cm tall, or ‘Noel’ letters about 20cm tall. Trace onto the paper side of Bondaweb – the ‘Noel’ letters must be in reverse. Iron the Bondaweb to the wrong side of the fabric oddments and cut out, using pinking shears. Peel off the backing paper and iron onto the front of one fabric rectangle. Glue or sew a ribbon bow and colourful buttons to the Christmas tree shape.
