Perfect Quarantine Project Bags

A free video sewing tutorial from OklaRoots

Kato Drawstring Project Bags Sewing ePattern

Jessica Rush of OklaRoots shares a wonderful tutorial for constructing the Kato Project Bag from Kandou Patterns. Get your sewing mojo back with Jess, as she too, was having trouble becoming inspired to sew during the Covid_19 quarantine. The Kato Project Bag is a compact project bag that is perfect for storing small needlework, embroidery, and crochet projects. Pattern to sew in three sizes. Decovil Light was used to stabilize the bag, a vinyl bottom, and some pretty quilting fabric with some leather cording ties it all together.

  1. large – 13½ x 11½ x 5

  2. medium – 12 x 9¾ x 4½

  3. small – 10 x 7¾ x 3½
