How to Make a Drawstring Bag
- pattern – you will need 2 circles that are about an inch different in size. For small drawstring bags, you can use a dinner plate and cereal bowl, but for larger bags, you can make your own circle template depending on how big you need it
- string or ribbon
- wood beads, optional
Start by tracing the larger circle pattern onto the backside of your fabric with your pencil. Cut it out.
Trace the smaller circle in the center of your fabric circle.
Mark the inner circle with hash marks every couple of inches so you know where you will cut out the holes for your bag.
Cut slits along the lines you drew.
Weave your string through the slits.
Once you get to the end your strings should be coming out of the fabric slits side by side. Trim the ends so they are the same length.
You can add some wood beads for decor, then fill up your drawstring bag with the trinkets of your choice!
Such an easy project, right?
