Free Drawstring Bag Patterns - Over 130 designs!
A drawstring bag can be an easy and convenient way to hold just about anything -
from laundry, toys, shoes, jewelry, and gifts to miscellaneous "do-dads" – the
possibilities are endless. Just size the bag up or down to suit your needs.
And one of the great things about drawstring bags is how simple, easy, and quick
they are to make (usually consisting of just a couple of fabric rectangles and a
casing). Which can make them a great first project for a beginner just learning how
Plus, a drawstring bag can be sewn from pretty much any kind of fabric, from
colorful woven cottons to knits, to dressier fabrics like satin or velvet. And sewing a
smaller bag can be a great way to use up scraps of fabric leftover from other
projects. Or you can sew smaller squares of fabric together in a patchwork design
to make a larger bag. A couple of these designs even show you how to transform
an old pillowcase into a drawstring bag.
Consider adding exterior pockets to your bag for even more versatility. And if you
plan to use your bag to hold heavier items, consider adding a lining to the bag for
greater durability (and reinforcing your seams).
And if you plan to launder your finished bag, just remember to preshrink your fabric
(assuming your fabric is washable).
