Travel Drawstring Pouch

Hi all! Today I have a useful project for those who love traveling. How many times have you experienced small items getting lost in your bags? So, I have a small drawstring pouch to carry all your essentials.  I made this cute little drawstring pouch to carry my make-up/electronics or any such small things.

Supplies – Fabric, Needle, Thread, String [You can purchase the supplies in form of an assembled kit here]

It’s a really simple bag to make. You can make it using a variety of fabrics – cotton, jute, silk, velvet, organza, etc. First, cut your fabric into two rectangular pieces of equal size. Now, put the pieces one over the other by keeping the printed side facing inwards.

Thread your needle and tie a knot at the ends. You need to stitch the three sides of the fabric pieces together. Start at 2-3 cm away from the top of the fabric.

When the three sides are stitched, fold the upper un-stitched part of the fabric and stitch its edge to the fabric. Do the same for the other side as well. This portion will be used to insert the strings.

Turn the bag inside out.

To make it a drawstring pouch, you need to insert one string from the left side and one from the right side with the help of a safety pin.

In order to finish, just tie the ends of the strings together. You can also add beads to decorate the bag.

So, the next time you go out keep your stuff handy with this drawstring pouch. Share your experiences in the comments below. Happy Creating!!
