Making DIY fabric baskets for kids to store all their toys in can be an amazing way to organize a kids room. Many sewing moms have relied on this sewing hack to keep their space clean for years. Now you can stay even more organized with the DIY Drawstring Basket. These sewn fabric baskets, unlike other projects, close up tight and make it easy to hide an unsightly mess. This would be a great place to store small toys like legos or little cars.

I made this as a fishing bag. I use it every time we go fishing. It is big enough for all of our drinks, tackle and worms. I was amazed at how easy it became to take everything we needed on our trips. Thanks for such a good pattern!

Very good resource on how to attach a drawstring top to a tote bag. Notethe size of the bag in the tutorial is very small. I made it a little larger and could have gone even bigger to a grocery tote size. I will reuse the construction steps to add drawstring tops to other patterns though.
