Seed Bag Tutorial

Supplies Needed:
Piece of calico or feed sack
Latch Pin
Coffee Stain or Walnut Crystals for Staining

Let's Begin! I am sure many of you already know how to make these but in case you don't here's how. Start by ripping the fabric to measure 12 1/2" wide by 7 1/2" tall. Fold the top down on the wrong side about 3/4". You will now need to sew along the bottom where you folded it down; you are making a casing for your twine string. Now cut a length of twine 19" long and tie a knot in both ends. Attach a latch pin to the end and feed through the casing. Put the fabric right sides facing and sew along one side and along the bottom. Make sure not to sew through the casing; just sew right up to the casing. Turn right side out and stain. Allow to dry and draw your string up. Perfect to hang on your pegs! To make them look even older sand them or make them from old fabrics.
