I'm sure a lot of you follow Jeni from In Color Order, but if you don't, get your booty over there and check out the tutorial she just posted for these bags! I whipped up four of them last night and I LOVE them!
What's funny is that I'm not even a big fan of drawstring bags! ha ha! I just wanted to make some to sell at the bazaar (hope that's ok Jeni) and when I finished, I didn't want to sell any of them! The only change I made to Jeni's pattern was to add a layer of Shape Flex interfacing to the exterior pieces only. If I had used home dec weight fabric I would have just followed her instructions, but I thought the quilting cottons needed a bit of help.
My favorite is the bird one. I was really pleased how the coordinating prints I chose worked there. It's always difficult for me to know what's going to look good together on a finished project. Sometimes it looks great as a pile, but not so much in the end. I probably should have chosen different linings for a few of them, but live and learn!
