Free Video Tutorial : CNY Orange Drawstring Bag

Posted by By the Yard Pte Ltd on

With Chinese New Year around the corner, we have partnered with Marvelous Works, a social enterprise that aims to provide employment opportunities to women from underprivileged backgrounds, to share this bag pattern with you!

For this project, we used Chinese New Year themed fabric designed exclusively by us that is available on our shop. We also design and produce iron-on woven labels to add that special touch on every project! Check them out here.
