Drawstring Bags

Who doesn’t need all kinds of bags and totes, especially when you have kids?!  I love these little bags I made for my twins, plus I made a “big girl” one for my sixteen year old!  

I was inspired to make these by watching Dana from Made Everyday.  Her video is below, thanks Dana for sharing your awesome talents!

Here are the two bags I made for my twins:

Of course my Matthew had to have sharks for his bag!  I used fat quarters to create the bags.  I got mine at Walmart where they are less than $2.00 and come in lots of cute designs.

Here is Amy’s bag, princess themed for her!

Here is another view of Matthew’s bag showing it open:

I used ribbon for the drawstring but you can also use cord if you prefer. 

Watch Dana’s video below to see just how to put the bags together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully crafty day!
