Bright Happy Drawstring Bag

As I type this, we are currently in lockdown in the UK, due to the Coronavirus.  These are strange and scary times we are in, but this post is a bit of light cheerful relief.

This is one of those projects where inspiration strikes and you just have to get making!  For some reason, I really wanted to make a drawstring bag.  I had just the right fabric in my stash, and the bag came together just as I hoped!

I made the pattern up myself - it is very simple.  This is the first time I've made a drawstring bag with the drawstring channel at the top, made out of separate fabric, rather than a channel within the body of the bag.  I like it!

The ribbon was some I had in stash too, and I thought it was perfectly sunny and right for this fabric!

The lining is the same spotty fabric as the drawstring channel.  I've not used any other interfacing or wadding, as I wanted the bag to be soft and relaxed.

Don't you just love it when something comes out just as you'd hoped?!  I think I will use it as a small project bag, for little knitting, crochet or embroidery projects.

What do you think?  I hope the fabric brightens your day!
