Simple Draw-string Bag for Toys

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

On my to-do list last week was to make two tote bags.  One I will post later, but one I will share now.  

The kids got these really cool magnet toys -Magformers- for Christmas.  And they really are cool.  But there are about eleventy hundred of them.  So, they needed a draw string bag to contain themselves.  Since the kids build things with the magnets, I chose this tool print from Robert Kauffman fabrics, via Hawthorne Threads-my favorite online fabric store.
  

It's a very simple drawstring bag, with doubled up hemp twine as the thread, because I have tons of it.



Like the Magformers, the bag gets a lot of use.   

On this weeks to-do list: 
host a game night with 4 of our neighbors  
and maybe clean the house. maybe. 

How's your week going?  What's on your list?
