I made this little drawstring bag for small knitting projects like socks or mittens. The inside fabric is one that I made when I did the marbling back in December.
Thanks to Sarah's good advice - I altered the way the drawstring opening worked on this bag. Instead of just leaving a hole at the top of the bag for the drawstring - I used a seam ripper and opened up the side seam to pull the cording through and added an extra round of stitches at the top of the bag. I think it looks much more "finished" doing it this way.
I also made 4 wallets/change purses
I just love this pattern. I made one mini wallet exactly as the pattern instructed. It's the perfect size for credit cards and money.
I then decided to alter the pattern to make a larger size. I'm thinking stitch marker holders? Needle holders? DPN holders? The ideas and uses for these little bags are endless! The one with the turtle fabric is my favorite!
I also used more of the marbled fabric I made:
Another alteration I did was to use velcro for the closures instead of snaps. I thought it would be easier to open and close and less chance of ripping the snap off or ripping the fabric by mistake. (Ask me how I know this! hehehe)
I will definitely be making more of these cuties soon. They are perfect for gifts too - so look out - you just may get one from me!
