My First Drawstring Bag


I finished my first (of many, I'm sure) drawstring bag.  I used the tutorial by Jeni at In Color Order for the design, but I used my own measurements to make it bigger.  I cut the soccer fabric at 18 inches square.  The black fabric was four inches wide, and the lining was 21.5 inches long.  It used 8 feet of ribbon. 

It is plenty big.  It can hold a soccer ball, cleats and shin guards, plus a water bottle and snack. 


I made it as a thank you gift for Cheetah's soccer coach, but now I need to make another one for Cheetah.  He loved it! 


And as you all know, if I make one for Cheetah... I will have to make one for Panda and Monkey as well!  Like I said, the first of many. 

XX,
Jasmine

  3. What a great gift for a soccer coach! I suspect that you will be making quite a few of these, as you said, and I think it will be fun to see what the boys want to carry/store in theirs!

  4. If you give a mouse a cookie . . .

    Sorry. That's what this reminded me of. If you give one child something, you'd better be prepared to make more. And who could blame them all for wanting one - it's adorable!

  10. Great job! Love the fabrics you chose. I love Jeni's lined drawstring bag pattern. I've made a bunch of the smaller size from the free tutorial. I have fabric to make a larger one as a gift... for keeping embroidery supplies/project in.
