After receiving a couple of these cute drawstring bags as gifts (thanks Cindy!), I was thrilled to finally make one myself. The pattern by Jeni Baker of In Color Order is wonderfully written and easy to follow.
I love that there is no interfacing, stabilizers, fusibles, or zippers involved! It was satisfying pulling fabrics I have collected for Leo projects. The race car fabric is Michael Miller, Riley Blake fabric is used for the drawstring and top of the bag, and I am not sure about the dot fabric used for the lining. I ordered Jeni's lined drawstring bag pattern which includes instructions for making eight different sizes as well as directions for customizing, but she also has a free tutorial version on her blog. The Everything Bag is the size I made. There will be more drawstring bags popping up here, I can tell you that!
