I love these drawstring bags. I made several back in April and I adore them. They're the perfect size and I use them all the time.
In November, two of my favorite people had a birthday. I decided that they needed a drawstring bag. They are sisters - twins - but oh, so wonderfully different. It was so hard picking out fabric. I wanted them to have fabric that matched their beautiful personalities. (Their Mom told me I got it right. yea!)
Grey with pink flowers for one. The lining is a coordinating print with little flowers.
A wild pink/turquoise/lime print for the other, lined with a Kona solid in blue and a hot pink tie.
I didn't quite get them finished in time for their birthday, but it was close!
Stats: all fabric from JoAnns; 11.5" tall, 8.5" wide, and 4" deep; 1/2 yard of fabric for outer and lining work perfectly.
