Make a drawstring bag

My first tutorial for William Gee has been a while coming, but it’s now live! I’ve started with a nice easy one: how to sew a lined drawstring bag. Perfect for PE kits! Check it out here.

Recognise the fabric? It’s some of what was left over from my Girl Power skirt (which I love and wear far too much!). Of course, since making this bag, it’s been pinched by my girls and is currently in their bedroom housing an enviable collection of My Little Ponies!

My favourite part of this project was using these eyelets:

Don’t they look great? I think they give something like this a more professional, rather than homemade, look. They were so easy to use too!

There are more projects for William Gee in the pipeline, all nice and simple, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you 🙂
