Purple drawstring bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The drawstring channels lined up correctly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can use any fabrics you want and make the bag bigger or smaller as needed. Allow plenty of time for cutting out all the pieces. The video lessons are short, but she starts with everything already cut out. Watch carefully how she does the drawstrings, especially getting them turned right-side out. It's kind of fiddly and can be frustrating.

What you will need

  • Parts of three fat quarters from Jo-Ann. The pattern only requires two
  • but I wanted to use three different fabric styles.
