I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.

I've been working on dolls for the Uthando Project for the past year or so, and wanted to include a bag with each doll to hold all of their outfits and accessories.  Since I can't resist buying fat quarters when they are on sale, I decided to make up a bag that used an entire fat quarter, and required no cutting or real measuring.  I also didn't want to deal with fishing the string through the casing after sewing, so I just drape the string/ribbon/rope through the fold/casing before I sew it shut.  I'm sure they are not an original idea, but I'm proud of them anyway.  Smiley 

I included step by step instructions below in case anyone else needs some quick and easy drawstring bags.  If you use a fat quarter, the finished bags are roughly 10" wide x 15" tall.










INSTRUCTIONS:



You don't necessarily need to fold over the bottom edge of the fabric, but I do it anyway just so I know I'll have straight edges to follow while stitching.







Of course, remember to backstich at the beginning and end of each row.
