Cameron's Trains Drawstring Bag by Kathie
Drawstring gift bags
This month our Pretty in Patchwork Holidays group is making Drawstring Gift Bags. My grandson is now obsessed with "choo choo" trains so I had to make him a bag to put them all into for traveling around.
I used some wonderful Japanese fabric called Trefle by Kokka with cute trains on linen. I used "Scoot" by Riley Blake for my patchwork and lining. Taking some bias tape I had and didn't used for another project I decided to finish off the edges with a decorative stitch. I then sewed the ends together so that Mommy and Daddy don't have to keep rethreading it when Cameron explores how to pull the ties out :smile:!
I altered the pattern a bit by adding some text fabric that has "Choo Choo" and then added Cameron's Name. Now that I'm done, I just have to go find some fun things to buy and fill up the bag before I mail it off!
Update: Cameron called me on FaceTime to thank me for his bag! He sang me a Thank you Nana song along with his guitar. Mommy and Daddy are happy all the trains now have a place to sleep once in a while.
