Drawstring bags

Despite a combination of lurgy and the usual lovely pre-Christmas madness it's been a much more productive week than anticipated.  We needed a couple of presents for a friend's daughters and as I've been itching to have a go at this tutorial from Jeni at In Color Order I made them some lined drawstring bags to fill with treats.

This is such a good tutorial and very easy to follow.  If you cut all the pieces carefully it becomes a straightforward assembly job, but even so there's something so very miraculous when you turn the whole thing right side out - "hey presto!" - a bag!  I can see that making these could become seriously addictive and I've just started on another two.


  1. I'm on the same boat with you...I want to make LOTS of these :-). Love your fabric choices :-)

  2. Hi Kate, I just checked out your bag - pretty! I felt for you when you said you'd sewed it shut! I've just completed the 3rd bag and realise I have sewn up the holes for the drawstrings...


I love hearing from you and always try to reply - please forgive me if I accidentally miss a comment. If you don't hear back do check you aren't a "No Reply Blogger", and look for a reply here in the Comments section.
