Even a Mouse +Lined Drawstring Bag

This week I've been making these fun lined drawstring bags.  They're quick to whip up, perfect for gift-giving, and addicting to make.

I love getting my first peek at the new Christmas fabrics each year, and then thinking up all the fun projects I want to make.  (Sometimes they get done before Christmas, and sometimes not.)  This stack is from Blend fabrics - it's a line called Even a Mouse, designed by Maude Asbury.

I'm a sucker for fun, bright colors when it comes to Christmas, and I thought this snow globe print (shown below) was perfect for the outside of the bag.

The tutorial makes this one size bag, but if you'd like instructions for a variety of sizes, Jeni also sells a pattern for the Lined Drawstring Bag here and the pattern includes 8 different bag sizes that range from 4" tall to 26" tall!

I love the details she adds to the bag - like how the lining peeks through at the top, and the use of the double drawstring.  I know I'll be making more of these fun bags!

  2. What a timely post for me! Just yesterday, I was trying to remember who had this pattern available and I've been driving myself crazy! I have a family of ten to sew for, and I thought it would be perfect! Your Christmas bag is adorable and motivates me to make one from the tutorial for me, first, then order the pattern for my gift giving. Thank you so much for being a mind reader! XO

  3. Adorable! I made a bunch of drawstring bags a while back and have been slowly giving them away for one reason or another. They are super handy to have on hand for gifts that unexpectedly crop up!
