This is a good idea. I would use something like that to transport my undies in my overnight bag.

I got in a bit of a logistical nightmare trying to work out how to sew the side seam and still have the end of the tube where the ribbon pokes out on the outside. I just about managed it, but if you know a cleverer way of doing it I'd be very happy to know.



If you made the pouch all one piece of material it could be a cinch. I haven't the vaguest idea of how to draw it though...
Verbal picture attempt:
If you want a pouch about 5 inches by 5 inches,
1) start with a flat fabric rectangle of about 10 inches by 10 inches plus enough for a seam allowance

2) fold in half, and stitch both short ends (which should be 5 " long), and for the long (10 inch) side, stitch in from the ends to within  1" of the middle, so the long side will be completely sewn except for a 2" stretch right in the middle of the side..

3) Trim your seams and pull your pouch inside out through the 2 inch hole. Press.

4) Now, take one short end of your pouch and tuck it down inside the other, which should form the 5" pouch you are aiming for, fully lined, with no seam allowances showing. At the top on one side should be your hole that you inverted the bag through. Press.

5) Run a line of stitching around what has become the top of the bag to make a casing. Run a ribbon through the casing you just made, tie off, and you're done!

Wow thank you so much... this is the most genius way of making a drawstring bag I have ever seen!! So neat and easy. I wouldn't be able to make the lining different, but I'm sure I could work something out. Thanks again.
