Whether you're packing a suitcase or storing items at home, these drawstring pouches are handy to have around. Made in a range of sizes, they are perfect for stowing jewelry, shoes, and even laundry.
Even a beginner can easily master sewing this drawstring bag. It requires just a few straight seams, and introduces the method of sewing a channel at the top (in this case, for a pair of ties used to cinch the bag closed). Dimensions for bags are as follows: shoe bag, 15 by 37 inches (finished size 13 by 17 inches); lingerie bag, 10 by 28 inches (finished size 8 by 11 inches); jewelry bag, 9 by 17 inches (finished size 7 by 7 inches). The amount of fabric will depend on desired size of bag; wool suiting and cotton shirting are shown.
