The Lined Drawstring Bag from Jeni Baker of In Color Order was such a fun, quick, and cute project! These bags are great to use for anything from gift giving to carrying around projects. Directions to make this bag can be found by clicking on this link.
The directions were so good that even my side seams matched – WAHOO! I would recommend some sort of bodkin when threading the ribbon through. I used the new Flex ‘n Bodkins, they are thin and really flexible which made it really easy to feed them through the drawstring channel. There are also directions in the pattern for making a drawstring out of fabric if you would rather.
The most difficult thing about the bag is deciding which fabrics to use and what to put in it!
This bag is a great way to customize a gift bag for all the different people in your life by choosing different fabrics they would love. For example, this bag is for me and I love snowmen so I used the Frosty Forest collection.
The only limitation here is your imagination and everyone knows quilters have limitless imaginations!
