I'm seeing drawstring bags everywhere: on-line, in catalogs and on social media. The are easy to sew and fun to use. They are also a great way to show off a fabric you really love. I've used several of my "Dogs at the Farmers Market" fabrics printed by Spoonflower.com for these 3 bags.
The pattern I used for my bags is the "Lined Drawstring Bag" designed by Jeni Baker. (I reviewed Jenis's new book, Quilting Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle in my last post). She has a free tutorial on her blog, Incolororder.com for a 10 x 7 inch "Everything Bag."
She also has a PDF pattern for purchase which is what I have. The purchased pattern has instructions for 8 different bags from "Tiny Bag" to "Laundry Bag" as well as a worksheet for making any size custom bag. I love my 13 x 8 x 4 in project bag. It's the perfect size for my tablet, a notepad and some other gear.
Got stuff to tote? Make yourself a happy drawstring bag to put it in!
