This Doggie Drawstring Bag turned out perfect. I wanted a drawstring bag that you didn’t have to use as a backpack. I added handles to it, but I don’t think this bag would hold heavy items without ripping. I used a dark brown for the bottom and the handles and I used a lighter tan for the drawstring area. The bag is lined with unbleached muslin. I used blue shoe strings I had on hand to pull through. The finished bag measures 15 1/2″ H x 12 1/2″W. A perfect large size bag. The pattern is my own.
