How to make your own diy cotton bags

Making your own DIY cotton bags is a fun and easy project that anyone can do. Here are the steps you can follow to make your own:
  1. Gather materials: You’ll need some cotton fabric, scissors, thread, and a sewing machine (or needle if you prefer to hand-sew).
  2. Cut the fabric: Cut the cotton fabric to your desired size and shape. You can make a simple rectangular shape, or get creative with different shapes and sizes.
  3. Sew the edges: Fold over the edges of the fabric and sew them down. This will create a hem and prevent the fabric from fraying.
  4. Sew the sides: Next, fold the fabric in half (right sides facing each other) and sew the sides together. You can use a sewing machine or hand-sew with a needle and thread.
  5. Add handles: To make the bag easier to carry, you can add handles. Cut two strips of fabric and sew them onto the top of the bag.
  6. Turn the bag right-side out: Turn the bag right-side out by pulling it through the opening at the top.
  7. Finish the bag: Finally, give the bag a final press with an iron and trim any loose threads.

There you have it – your very own DIY cotton bag! You can customize your bag with different colors, patterns, and sizes to suit your needs. Making your own cotton bags is a great way to reduce your waste and save money, while also getting creative and having fun.
