The Easy Drawstring Bag is a great project for all sewing levels, especially novices. It's made from small cloth towels that can be purchased at dollar stores or party outlets, each patterned with cute characters your kids will love. Sewing a bag doesn't have to be hard, and this drawstring bag tutorial shows you how to sew one that's perfect for children. Each step is described in detail and carefully illustrated, and an instructional video is included, so even a beginning sewist can follow along.

This easy to make drawstring bag is a great project and can really help keep your stuff organized, whether you are a kid or an adult crafter, seamstress, artist, woodworker, etc...helps to keep odd shaped things at hand. Or use these as party favors with take away goodies inside! I made several,of these as part of a charity project for school bags for children in need.... Easy to make several in assembly line fashion with fabric remnants, thanks for sharing!

Our children just love bags (like their mother, lol!) and can never have enough. I made a few of these this morning for our 2 youngest kidlets and they adore them. 2of them I made with a drawstring and the other 2 without so that they are just normal bags and I just made them from leftover fabrics that I have from previous projects. They tutorial is easy to follow and the bags look great to give it a try.
