Embellished Drawstring Pouch
This project may just start a new addiction!! With endless options for embellishment, the sky is the limit for the variations on a simple drawstring pouch tutorial.
From stashing away trinkets to gifting jewelry or even a gift card, these petite drawing string bags come in handy.
Not only will you find uses for your fabric stash, but you can put to purpose those lonely buttons and bits of trim. Fussy cutting bits of treasured scraps for applique gives the pouch added personality.
We love the modern detail this mini hexi gives to a pouch. Want to brush up on your hexi paper piecing skills? Check out this detailed tutorial from Heather at The Sewing Loft.
The finished drawstring pouch measures 3″ W x 4″ H. The tutorial includes tips and techniques for adding trim and tags too!
