The pattern is Jeni Baker's drawstring bag. It is such a great pattern! She makes it so easy that you can whip up a handful of these in no time. The part of the project that is most time consuming is deciding on which fabrics to use.
I made these for my kiddos. They are always playing with matchbox cars and small trains and they like to take them everywhere they go. These bags are the perfect size for their little hands and a great way to help them keep up with their small toys.
After Christmas we went on a long trip to visit family and they loved to take their little bag along to carry their belongings. The ladybug bag is for my little lady. She loves purple and ladybugs.
I made this clutch for my sister. The pattern is a Gathered Clutch by Anna over at Noodlehead. This bag is another quick sewing project.
I made my sister a larger duffle bag out of these fabrics a couple of years ago and decided she needed a little clutch to go with it. I love using these zippers made with the gold metal. They add a little shiny to the bag.
If you would like to see the other projects I made for Christmas gifts, here is a list:
Dresden Tote Bag - For my grandmother
Sporty Zipper Bags - For my sister
Hexagon Zipper Bag - For my grandmother
Joy Quilt - For my mother (It doesn't mention that it is for her because I posted it in September and did not want to spoil the surprise)
Fabric Basket - For my grandmother
Before we know it, it will be time to start sewing for Christmas gifts again. I plan on starting in the summer!
