Make a dent into your fabric stash by making a Lined DIY Drawstring Bag. This sewing tutorial  uses three fat quarters, two yards of ribbon, and basic sewing tools. This DIY bag is great for just about anything: bringing lunch to work or school, sports practice, traveling on a plane or in a car, etc. The drawstring aspect of these DIY bags makes your important things easy to access and you'll never have to worry about sewing on a zipper or that zipper getting stuck. They are about 10 inches tall and 7 inches wide, big enough to fit even a small tablet device.
