I only had a small piece of fabric leftover from the colorful butterfly tote. I wanted to make a small matching bag to go with it and decided to make a patchwork one. I made this small drawstring bag from scraps of fabric. I lined the bag with the same sage green material I used for the drawstring area. The finished measurements are 7″H x 9″W. The pattern is my own. It’s a “patch together as you go” type project. Lots of fun!
I really enjoy creating bags and this one turned out perfect. It is a nice size for make-up, a camera, sunscreen, your checkbook & pen, etc. – just about anything you put in your handbag. It is easy to find quickly when digging in for something you need in a hurry. You could even make this size out of fun material for kids marbles, crayons, and more. And, the best thing is the cost was minimal! Just scraps of fabric, a small piece of fabric for the lining and some ribbon for the drawstring.
