Quick Make Drawstrings
Aneela Hoey's Stitched Sewing Organisers book has a pattern for a drawstring bag and I fancied trying it out. It didn't take too long to make but I made a bit of a mess of my hexagon tab ends for the drawstrings. Being impatient to finish I switched them out for some squares ones, which I didn't manage a particularly neat job of either, but hey ho!
This pattern is a bit more involved than other drawstring bags I've made but I would make it again. It has a darted bottom which gives it a really nice shape and the overall size of the bag is a good medium sized gift bag, I'd say.
No sooner had I set my bag down than a little pair of grabby hands ran off with it! CT had so much fun pulling the drawstrings and hiding her little things inside that, of course, I had to stitch her up one of her very own. Perfect tiny treasures bag!
