drawstring bags


Child #2 will be off to an art camp in just a few days, so I decided to whip up these super simple, but so very useful drawstring bags for her. Can you tell we're totally into cats these days?


I used my drawstring bag tutorial (it's free and you can find it here). I scaled the original pattern up and down to also make a larger and a smaller versions of this bag.


I'm still thinking of making a few larger bags for her because these are so much prettier than any ziplock bag can ever be :). 

Happy Sunday, everyone. Svetlana

  12. Oh what a great idea! Can you figure out a way to put two straps on a drawstring bag so it can be worn as a backpack when the straps are tightened? My girls go to art camp too and I made them adorable skirts out of paint by carrie bloomston but matching bags would be awesome!!!!!!!

  13. I have to say I love your drawstring bag tutorial. I use it often to make so many different sized bags. I have made a few to keep car toys in for my boys, and they are great for gift giving too. I made my SIL a beautiful drawstring bag to hold her b-day gifts and a matching zipper pouch (one of your patterns). I have plans to make Halloween treat bags for them and their friends too. They're so much fun to make!

  14. Those are some great designs! I think handmade bags and other accesories are an important part of the personality of some girls, and define them as creative and unique people!
