Sew up a delightful Drawstring Ditty Bag! This easy unlined drawstring bag tutorial is great for beginners and experienced crafters.

It also gives instructions to make an optional sturdy false bag bottom that you can make so that your little bag always keeps that cute shape.

Each bag uses 2 (or 3) fabrics (if you count the false bag bottom), and can be cinched up with your choice of drawstring materials.

I used pretty leather cording and pony beads, but you could also make DIY drawstrings or use narrow ribbon or cotton rope.

You will need: – Yard of fabric for the bag front/back/bottom – Yard of fabric for the sides – 60” of drawstring material of your choice - Pony beads for embellishment

Pin and stitch the 8 1/2” edges of the bag front, back, and bottom pieces right sides together with the bottom piece in between the front and back pieces.

Pin one of the 11” x 3 1/2” side pieces to a corner of the bag body piece as seen above.

Repeat to sew all of the bag side pieces to the long bag body piece.
