Drawstring Bag


"Drawstring bags are a super handy way to organise and contain clutter. They have so many uses - toiletry bags, storage bags, travel bags, gift bags, toy bags, handbag tidies, makeup bags, wine bottle bags, ice brick covers - the list is endless. These unlined bags are quick and easy to sew, making them a great project if you are new to sewing. Whip up a bunch in different sizes. You can even use them as reusable gift bags instead of wrapping paper - two gifts in one."

Great and practical project! I have made several of these for a project for children's school bags in impoverished countries and we filled them with school supplies for a community project. You could dress these up or down....cotton fabric for day to day, or make a cute little evening bag purse using matching fabric to your gown or outfit!

Every back to college student needs a drawstring laundry bag and this one is perfect. The tutorial that accompanies this article is very easy to follow. I especially like the sturdy cording used. Great gift idea too. I would add some simple embroidered saying on one side of the bag for personalization.
