Patchwork Drawstring Bag

From the Blogger: "Learn how to make a small, lined, patchwork drawstring bag that is just perfect for gift giving. All you need are scraps of fabric from your stash to make your own patchwork fabric. Join the thin strips together and turn them into a piece of fabric, which then becomes a pretty and practical drawstring bag. The resulting bag ends up at 6” x 7”, so a great size for organising all manner of things. Pop one in your handbag for all those small objects that get lost in the bottom of your bag, use it for storage when travelling, fill with cosmetics, or even use it as somewhere to store sewing bits and pieces. The pretty little bag is just the right size to use as a gift bag instead of wrapping paper. Fill it with some handmade soap, or maybe even some jewellery – two gifts in one."
