Drawstring Bags

I managed to get these both finished yesterday for the boys.  I plan on putting a few goodies and gadgets in them to keep them both busy while they're visiting their new little brother in the hospital soon.  Hopefully very soon.

This one is for my youngest.  He loves blue and brighter colors so I thought this dino print with the bright green polka dot lining would be perfect.

And this one is for my oldest.  He really likes red and orange but I couldn't find a print that had red background with dinos on it anywhere in my stash so I settled for this one that had red/orange dinos on it and then found a large enough scrap for the lining in a brick red with dino fossils all over it.

Instead of making a cord or buying ribbon or drawstring, I decided to use what I had to finish these up quickly and inexpensively.  I found some twine from my Moda precuts.  I always keep these when I open a precut up and I knew one day they would come in handy.

I'm sure the boys are going to love them!  I actually had a lot of fun making them and am already itching to make some more.  I was thinking of making some for myself to hold smaller items and making a few up for birthday gift bags.  I love the idea of using a handmade, reusable bag for a gift.  It's like getting an extra gift.  No waste and a cute little bag to keep for yourself or reuse again.
