I bought my son some wooden blocks for Christmas, but they came in disposable plastic packaging.  So, I made him this nice bag to keep them in.  The fabric came from my grandmother.  It was leftover from a dress she made me when I was a baby.

The flowers and the slug originally had buttons sewn on as embellishment, but I removed them (choking hazards) and replaced them with some non-life-threatening embroidery. This was my first drawstring bag and I made it up as I went along. It was a pretty simple process. The only snag I hit was that I didn't think that the blocks would take up much more space when not packaged (duh!). Thankfully, I made the bag much larger than I thought was necessary and it ended up being just the right size.

Wow, that's adorable, and much cuter than a plain old box would be. Great job. I have a  hard time getting my drawstring bags to look so finished.

I love it...that is so cute  Cheesy
It's especially great because of the meaningful fabric, too. 
I used some fabric from a shower curtain (that my mom made for me) in a quilt for my daughter's room.  It's a great way to remember that special person, too  Cheesy 
Wouldn't it be great if your son passed the bag on to his kids someday?
