DIY Drawstring Bag and Pouch

After I finished hand sewing my felt stuffed letters, I decided to make a drawstring pouch where I can put all the letters.



I searched for different tutorials and I saw a 3 minute video on how to make a drawstring pouch which I followed. Since I’m just using a plain white cloth, I tried to put some design by placing our initials. 



First time to try applique and it is not easy to sew along the edge but still I was glad with the result. 



And because of that I watched the Bag Making Basics Class that I enrolled online and printed the step by step guide. These are the finished products.



I like this drawstring bag because it has a lining inside so it has a “clean look”. 



Lastly, I watched the free tutorial video from Brother sewing machine. This project wasn’t easy because I have to do zigzag stitch, straight stitch and button hole. So it took me a long time trying to figure out how can I do button hole. Thank God for the sewing manual. 



I’ve made six but I need to buy more ribbon or string for the remaining drawstring pouches.



Among the three, my favorite is the second drawstring bag. If you notice, I’m still using my fabric scrap from pajama
