Online Interactive Workshop: Ada Drawstring Bucket 

We're absolutely delighted to welcome back from the States the wonderful Jennie Pickett who will be hosting this Ada Drawstring Bucket workshop which sees you get to make not one but THREE beautiful accessories!...

Introduction by Jennie:-

I’m a big fan of organizing my space, and two of my favourite things to use are drawstring bags and fabric baskets. The Ada Drawstring Bucket combines the best of both. It functions like a fabric basket when you need it to, but can be secured at the top with the drawstring for storage or travelling. To bring your organizing to the next level, the bag has a handy divider to help you sort your projects or items inside each bag.

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

This workshop will teach you how to make your own Ada Drawstring Bucket, which includes cutting, interfacing, creating a boxed corner, and inserting the divider. Additionally, learn how to apply the divider feature to other similarly constructed bags!

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-


Understanding of using the sewing machine, how to cut fabrics, and basic sewing are required.

Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

  • 48” 5mm cotton cord or ribbon for drawstring, as a substitute, use soft laundry line
