a match sack for me

From cotton damask I sewed this matchsack. On the bottom of the sack I have sewn a wound sisal rope (like a snake). In the top I have chosen eyelets and pulled a sisal rope through. So you can take the sack, I sewed two wooden rings on the back sewn and pulled also a sisal rope.
The sack is very easy to imitate – for the bottom I put a plate an the fabric and traced. For the body I have laid a straight pice of fabric twice, in beetween there is fleece.
Idea from Burdastyle-Magazine 2010/Febr.

    Yes it seems very functional. Actually I could use one just like this. =) Did you use a pattern for it, if so which one? Thanks!

      Hi Stephanie!
      No I have’nt a pattern for it. For the bottom I put a plate on the fabric (the diameter ca. 33 cm) for the body I’ve laid a straight pice of fabric twice (my finish-height is ca 45 cm) between I’ve put flees in it. For the bottom I turned sisal like a worm and sew on it (I hope, that you understand what I write)
      I have seen this idea in the BurdaStyle-Magazin February 2010
      Best wishes und much fun with sewing!
