Description

This is the Drawstring Gift Bag from Pretty in Patchwork- holidays.
The fabric is shot cotton - I think it is Moda Crossweaves and one side is Japanese fabric patches with Moda Bella solids, while the other side is some of the I Spy fabrics from the swap- so glad to have those- I keep finding uses for them!!! The lining is Michael Miller- Spotlight- one of my all time favorites!
 
It's a few inches smaller - made it as a birthday gift for a little boy my daughter babysits for each week- he's very little= loves to carry toys around in bags- so I made it just right for a few cars and some Duplos- that kind of thing- and shortened the ties for safety's sake. I made them out of ribbon too- had some cute striped ribbon and it just seemed perfect.
 
It was a really easy project- and came together well- so cute - I will definitely be making more of these!
 
Update- I did make a second one-  Light Green Moda Crossweaves, with Kaffe Fassett Big Blooms and lined with Kaffe Fassett Paperweight. This one is the original size on the pattern.
 
Update- Another one in the light green Moda Crossweave, this time with a cute little print I can't recall the name of- maybe someone recognizes it:)- and the lining and ties are Deena Designs Pretty Little Things...Jada in Aqua. This will be for the sister of the the little boy getting the dark green one.
 
The second one- sorry for the bad photo- my phone is not behaving and won't send any of the nice shots I tool today so this will suffice for now:)- It's Liberty and Natural Linen, the lining is Liberty Lifestyle, and yes, this one stays with me...not letting it out of my sight;))))

Cute bags! Love the blooms fabric / colours especially. These would also make great shoe bags for packing your shoes for hols.

True

Oh I love the fabric on your latest bag...really pretty

Mymble

crimsonrabbit Yes-good idea! I think someone said they were making a bag for their daughter's ballet shoes- another great idea. I made a shoe bag out of flannel last year but it's very thin- I think the two layers would be good- sturdier- oh dear...this means I'm going to go make another one....;)))_ well not tonight...but soon- real soon!

Mymble

True Thanks- I've been hoarding my Kaffe FQ's for ages- they needed a job!

Mymble

Carolmarie I hope so- he's got 4 brothers and sisters and now I'm worried they will all want one- considering these are so fun and easy to make...yup...looks like I may wind up making one for each of them...such a hardship;P
