Sweet Project Bags

Typically I feel bad about buying fabric because I don't sew very much. I usually change my mind, especially when I make something awesome - like lined/reversible drawstring bags.

Yes, I think drawstring bags are awesome. They are so handy (mine mostly get used for knitting projects and traveling). You can use beautiful fabric with fun prints that you might not know what else to do with. They are great projects for new sewers (even if you are self-taught like moi). And they are practically instant gratification. There are lots of other good reasons, but these top my list.

I found a drawstring bag tutorial online and then played around with the concept to work with the amount of fabric I had and size bags I wanted. Most of the fabric I used is older, but last weekend I stopped by Three Crafty Quilters and couldn't resist picking up the orange and green fabric. It's part of the Central Park line by Kate Spain. I love love love it! Also, I love love love the shop! Super friendly gals working there and they carry so many designers/fabrics that I like.
