Drawstring Bag for Flowers
Free up your hands and protect your blooms while you shop the farmers' market by turning a basic drawstring bag (like the one that came with your last pair of dress shoes) into a bouquet carrier.

Keep blossoms where they belong (peeking out of the top of the tote) by cinching the drawstring securely around the stems.
- Drawstring bag
- Cotton webbing
Snip the bottom seam off the drawstring bag.
Fold the edge in 1½ inches, pin, and iron to create smooth out creases.
To attach the strap, pin the ends of a 30-inch-long piece of cotton webbing onto opposite sides of the bag.
Machine-sew a simple straight hem around the edge; reinforce the strap by sewing a rectangle where the webbing and fabric meet.
