drawstring bag + ipod case

Hello, how's everyone doing? It's been so very busy around here that I barely had any time to sew in the last few days. Totally feeling withdrawal symptoms coming on :) Must get some sewing done today!


I did, however, sew a teeny bit over the weekend. I made this drawstring bag and a matching ipod case for my middle daughter. They are encouraged to bring their smart devices to school on certain days which of course meant her ipod needed a new padded case, and the case needed a matching drawstring bag to go in. You know how these ideas take a life of their own, right?


My daughter chose the sheep fabric by Creative Thursday from their Locally Grown collection for the bag and inside of the pouch. I then added some Kona Pomegranate for contrast.


I used some scraps and linen for the exterior of the case. I like how pretty, simple, and calm it looks. I was tempted to do a lot more patchwork but since neither of my daughters are keen on patchwork,  this strip of pretties was all I could get away with.


I also stamped her name on the bag - you never know, someone else in the class might have a sheep drawstring bag, too :)

All in all, this was such a fun and quick project and we both love how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Svetlana

  7. Hi Svetlana, I love the strip of pretties you were able to get away with! Do you mind if I ask, did you just use batting or something else, so the ipod is protected? Is one layer enough, or did you use two? Many thanks, Kelly

  9. Hi! I love these! Your design for the ipod case is so good! I like how to the cover is the size of the case. Of course I love that sheepy fabric and I think I need to make a drawstring bag for my crochet project. x Teje

  15. This is so cute. I love the green sheep fabric with the Kona pomegranate (my favorite Kona color). What a great thing to do for your daughter, I am sure all of the other kids in her class will be jealous :)

  16. Love this colourful pieces. I like the sheep fabric. Would be something for my little ones, too. (And also for me but don't tell anyone :) Who made it?) I'm looking closely at the case to figure out how you made it. Still need a case for my cell phone (aka smart phone). The case looks so wonderful. Maybe I just have to wing it.
