DIY: Stuff Sack Sewing Pattern

Next up in my collection of sewing patterns is my Stuff Sack pattern, which is a drawstring bag with a flat bottom. The pattern prints as a 4-page PDF with circle templates if needed. Click here to purchase the pattern. (Update: I recently moved all of my sewing patterns to my Etsy shop.)

Stuff Sack Pattern

I was originally inspired to make my own Stuff Sacks several years ago because when I was inspired by the stuff sacks used by campers and backpackers to keep stuff organized in a backpack. I use one stuff sack to save pinecones, acorns, feathers and other trail treasures, and another one to store my acrylic paints – 14 bottles. I use another one for a lunch bag. You could use one for your knitting or embroidery project. The possibilities are endless!

I added this Stuff Sack sewing pattern to the tab at the top of my blog called Sewing Patterns. Stay tuned for more patterns coming soon!

Happy sewing!


Note: Because I create with human hands, my cutting is never perfect. My sewing is never perfectly straight. My circles aren’t perfectly symmetrical or even. And I always have threads to trim. Please forgive me for that 😉 This is just a fun project I was excited to share. I’m sure there are many ways to make this; I’m just sharing my concept and process here.

PS – If you make this pattern, I would love it if you share a photo of your project in the Flickr group I created. Thank you!
