How to make a simple drawstring bag…

Drawstring bags are one of my favourite things to make, one: because they are so easy, and two: because the possibilities are endless. A simple homemade drawstring bag can give any gift the personal touch, or make a messy toy room tidy again. You can use up small pieces of left over fabric, or it is great for Fat Quarters you may have stashed away somewhere. I love these drawstring bags and hope you do to. I would love to hear what you will be putting in yours…

    I’m currently working on a project that may require a handmade drawstring bag. I found this post very helpful and easy to understand (and I also absolutely love the fabric that has been used) so I thought I’d share it with you all.

  2. This step by step instructions were super useful for me. I am currently making my pouch bags for my children’s birthday party out of this guide. I’m so happy I was able to stumble into this

  3. Thank you for these great instructions, i’m not the worlds best at sewing, but I have been able to make lots of bags with the help of your instructions.
