I fit some sewing in a few weeks ago and am so happy with what I ended up with. My kids had a few toys that needed to be contained. Some blocks that needed a better/cuter home than a Ziploc bag, and Connectagons from my mom at Christmas time.
I knew just where to go for what I needed. My friend Kari’s blog, Handmade Mommy, has a lovely tutorial on fishing reel drawstring bags. I thought they’d be perfect for the kids because they are easy to open and shut, and you can make them whatever size you need. Here’s my final product:
Aren’t they cute? I lined the inside with white flannel just to keep them a bit thicker and sturdy.
These blocks look so much better in a cute bag, don’t you think?
Thanks so much for the tutorial, Kari!
