Here's a twist to the classic drawstring sack. Just because things are simple, doesn't mean they have to be boring. This is the perfect example of that. It only takes about 20 minutes to make, looks really nice and it's very useful.
I just moved to a new house and have a lot less closet space than before. I needed an easy and cheap method to organize.
I made a bunch of these little pouches and hung them in different places. I have one for toiletries, one for underwear, one for socks and one for dirty clothes. They look so beautiful! (if you need more organizing ideas, try my Store It All Pouch Set)
I'm planning to make even more for the stuff I haven't unpacked. My friend's birthday is coming so I will also give her one full of cookies and sweets. There are so many things you can do with drawstring bags… anyway, here's the tutorial.
Pull the corners out to make the side and bottom seams match. The tip will form a triangle. Measure 2" and sew in a straight line.
Insert the exterior in the lining and match the side seams.
Press the top edge and topstitch.
Make two buttonholes above the folding line (there isn't actually a line, but you can just measure!).
Sew around the bag, encasing the buttonholes.
