Drawstring Bag Tutorial
Yarnmonster has a great tutorial for a reversible, drawstring bag. I made one using the Christmas fabric for my Christmas in July swap. The tutorial is easy to follow and a great bag. It can be used for books, toys, makeup, gift-giving, etc. I used a polka-dot, coordinating fabric for the reverse which allows it to be used year-around. I did accent with pink and green rick-rack. I sewed the rick-rack on the panel pieces before sewing the sides together. I used a coordinating ribbon for the drawstring and was very pleased at how it all came together.
