How to make a Drawstring Bag
I started with a few fat quarters.
I cut a strip out of some of these 3.5" wide and also used another fabric which was once a sheet and has tractors and things on it. I sewed 4 strips together. They were all at least 17.5" long so I could make 5 strips. I forgot to get photos of the strips showing how I got the squares to go diagonally but I showed that in more detail here.
I also took two strips of fabric the width of the front and about 3.5" wide. I hemmed the ends and these were used for the drawstrings.
Then I turned them the right way and quilted the front and lining together. I just did straight lines 0.25" away from all the seams.
