More Patchwork Drawstring Bags

More patchwork drawstring bags - NoodleheadI went off on a little tangent with these drawstring bags. Can’t help it! Remember when I made one last year? I promised I’d be making more and I finally got around to it. Sometimes I don’t follow through on those promises but I’m glad I did this time. I used Sotak Handmade’s pattern again, which you can find here.More patchwork drawstring bags - Noodlehead

Busting out the hoarded mini charm pack of Architextures fabric that my friend Rossie sent me ages ago (thanks again Rossie!), I felt like it was the perfect fit for a little get well gift for a friend. I’m filling it up with a little bit of chocolate and sending it on it’s way today. I can’t wait to see how she likes it!More patchwork drawstring bags - Noodlehead

Then of course being curious, I decided to pull out some of my friend Holly’s fabric collection, Brush Strokes and make another! I really love how cheery the colors are and I always love seeing how things look so great when they’re quilted. It definitely feels like some kind of magic. I added some of the beautiful Cirrus Solid (Shadow) that Holly had sent me for when I made her a bucket bag and it looks super sharp. I’m excited to pop this one in the mail, too!

I can’t stop myself from wanting to start all of them at once. That’s what Spring does to me I guess, it happens without fail every year.

What’s on your sewing list? Are you participating in Me Made May? I love seeing all the posts popping up in my feed.More patchwork drawstring bags - Noodlehead

    I’m working on my daughter’s Easter Dress (my machine broke on Good Friday). Maybe I should move on, but I’m trying to develop some discipline in finishing projects! I have some sewing to do for my soon-to-arrive niece or nephew, and I’ve just realized that I should probably make teacher gifts–not much time left!

    Love this Drawstring pattern and I have Svetlana’s rare Charm pack of her screen prints to use! So hard to cut these precious squares! On my list is a Traverse Bag and trying to figure out a matching outfit I can make. Your bags always come out so pretty…do you hand Quilt them?

    I’ve never considered using drawstring bags for more than carrying my track spikes in high school, but I am definitely bumping this project up to the top of my list! So cute!!
