Dottie Drawstring Bag

Hello everyone....here i am with some sweet fabric play this week.....
......this is my dottie drawstring bag pattern made with some adorable belle and boo fabrics......
.........love this sweet sewing theme fabric so much.....it was hard to cut it up...... i made one bag from the fabric and one from patchwork with a few mixed scraps from my scrap basket.....
.....the cords and stops are from rose garden patchwork......
...........the fabric below is the toy box print which fits well with my love of vintage toys, blocks and nursery alphabets.....
..........it was so much fun to play with these fabrics, to choose linings and backings, and mix up the different patches.....there will be more to show you soon.....
.....the cords and coloured stops finish off the little bags so nicely and make them special....
.....love the star ones used here......and will be trying out lots more......
......little bags like these are lovely to make to hold little gifts, small toys or to collect treasures.....the pattern for the dottie drawstring bag is in my etsy shop link in sidebar.......
..........after a cold and wet week the sunshine did come back though it still needs to warm up a lot more.....i bought some flowers from the supermarket and added some more from the garden to make this colourful bunch in my pretty pink vase......
.........the cottage garden is in bud and some roses are beginning to open so hopefully we will have a lot more flowers to enjoy very soon......

 ....thank you for dropping by lovely readers and thank you for your kind comments......wishing you a happy sunny week ahead with crafty inspirations and cheery days.....keep well and take care lovelies.......back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh those sweet little bags are just darling! I LOVE making fabric drawstring bags. There is just something about them that "draws" me in! My sons, when they were young, had little fabric "sacks" to hold their toys and little trucks whenever we went somewhere. They were so durable and could be washed and used for years. Those fabrics are so precious, and the matching cording looks so neat with the beads and stars. I bet your garden is just lovely right now.. we are finally getting some color here as had one good rain, and have been watering like crazy! Enjoy the weekend! Marilyn
