Craft Academy - Drawstring Bag

I love purses!!!  Actually, I’m a fan all kinds of bags.  Love, love, love them!  I have sewn a couple of bags but never really could figure them out.  I really want to get better at sewing so I can make my own purses.  That’s what made me want to sew in the first place.

This little drawstring bag was our third Craft Academy project.  I love it so much!  It’s very simple to make and it is adorable!!!  I wanted to use ribbon for the drawstring but I couldn’t seem to find a ribbon color I liked so I used bias tape on this one.  I may have made the drawstring a little too long.  Oops.  I wanted it to have a handle.

I loved this fabric so much so I bought a bunch of it.

I'm going to make a matching bag for my mom once I get all caught up on my Craft Academy projects.  I have a couple of other people in mind that I want to make one for, too!  I can't wait!

Here’s what I made!

Don’t you love it?? 

My purse collection is very happy right now!
