I'm pretty sure everyone has made one of Jeni Baker's lined drawstring bags. Every bag I have made using her pattern turns out so adorable.
My daughter had a birthday party to go to and wanted to gift smencils, so we made a bag to store them in. This is the first time I have made a custom bag and it went really well, once we figured out the math...the tricky part is not really knowing if it will be the right size. Lucky for us, we got it right on the first try.
My only regret is that I wish the accent piece at top was a little longer. I've taken notes, so next time should be better.
I really need to be on top of things enough so that we can gift more presents in bags...It would be good for my stash, and a great way to use novelty fabric!
