Drawstring Pouch Sewing Class

In this skill-building class, you will learn how to machine sew an origami-style drawstring pouch on your sewing machine (or reserve one at the shop if needed). The following will be taught in this class

  • What a Fat Quarter is by using a yard piece of fabric to explain.
  • How to use ruler and rotary cutter
  • How to use fabric to make ¼” drawstring cords
  • How to sew 2 pieces of fabric together insides out and turn to make finished 2 sided square.
  • Use machine to sew forward, reverse, and topstitching.
  • Fabric folding to create the bag with interesting inside small pockets.
  • Sew ¼” seams using various tools. You can choose between several of these options: Lori Holt's seam guide, Diagonal Seam tape, and the Sew Straight Guide. You are not expected to know what any of those are, so please don't worry!
  • How to pin fabric.


Materials: All available at Humble Stitch if needed. The costs below reflect a range of products in the shop. 

  • 2 fat quarters, which measure 18" by 22" ($3.20 - $6.00)
  • thread to match your fabric ($1.80 - $5.55)

Please bring your sewing machine if you have one. It is best to learn on your own machine. However, I am more than happy to provide a machine for you if needed. Let me know ahead of time through Facebook messenger, by email at, or by calling 717-418-2770. I am always happy to answer any questions.


Skill Level: beginner
Skill Details: Class-goers will enjoy this class most if they know how to thread their machine and sew a straight line. You are welcome to join if you are above that level as well.
Materials Included: no
Instructor: Jane Shull
Instructor Bio: Jane is a life-long learner and teacher. Jane and I met many years ago when we volunteered at the same summer camp, as I taught weaving and Jane taught sewing to interested kiddos. We are having a blast working together at the shop to bring more sewing knowledge to the local community. Jane uses many of the education techniques to teach sewing that she used when she was a school teacher. Most of all, she makes learning FUN!
Materials not included. We do prefer that materials for the class be purchased at Humble Stitch. We have found that people enjoy learning more, and pick things up more quickly, if they are working with quality supplies and tools.
