This little drawstring bag is heavily influence by the bag in the Oliver & S book "Little Things to Sew". I couldn't be bothered, at 11.00pm, to trace the pattern so I just eyeballed the fabric and cut it out and used a baked bean can to round off the corners. Very technical. Also, I think the bag in the book may be lined and this isn't.
In a further fit of laziness I didn't make a separate channel for the drawstring to go through, instead I folded twice and topstitched having already put in some buttonholes for the ribbon to pass through. It just about works but would have been neater had I spent the extra time and effort. Oh well.
The fabrics are both home dec weight and came from The Village Haberdashery and I bought them with the intention of making a new work bag for myself but I haven't got round to doing anything about that yet.
I am really happy with my new little crochet bag. It fulfils its function admirably and I did feel happier knowing that should my bags be searched at the airport my crochet would be happily tucked away in a smart new bag!
