I am loving watching all the great gifts from my fellow designers, but I am so pleased to present this one to you. I don’t know when I first made these, but I am guessing late 90’s or early 00’s!
I use them all the time and thought you might like them. They are great for stashing so many things – sewing kit, makeup, knitting supplies and more.
Here is another version I made. I love what the stripes do. In the first one I used a great dotted ribbon. This one I used something called Paracord that you can get at Michaels or AC Moore (and many other places). I like it because it melts on the end and there is no fraying.
There is good news…it takes less than an hour! The first one might take you a little longer, but really you can make a few of these very quickly. You can use your Purple Thang to string the ribbon/cord if you have one. I love to use my tools when I can!
This pattern is now available for purchase here.
Visit the facebook page, and the designers to see their projects – continuing through Monday. I will keep updating the list here as we go on.

I loved making this little bag, Kathleen, and my daughters adored it! They’re so sweet and a great way to use a gorgeous, statement print.
I am so glad you loved it and I am sure your daughters can even help! Larger circles bigger bags too.
I have seen drawstring bag tutorials before but I love your version. Thank you.
Thanks so much!
What a pretty little bag, and so useful too. Love the idea of the paracord. Gotta remember that!
The paracord is awesome and Purple Thang was really helpful for a silly little tool.
thank you–what a cute drawstring bag.
Hi Kathleen! I’m not falling for this squirrel project, you temptress you. But this IS a sweet bag . . . and you know it’ll hang out in the back of my mind, taunting me to make one. I can see where this would come in handy for so many different uses. Toys for Dominic and Addison spring to mind. Great project! ~smile~ Roseanne
Or teacher supplies…or jewelry…or the list goes on! But I hear you, no squirrels from this corner of the world are entering your studio!
Thank you for a wonderful pattern!
Thank you, Jacqueline.
Kathleen, I made those bags in the 90s, too! I love them for jewelry when traveling.
