Drawstring Pouches

Hi everyone! It's so good to be back in Blogland! Although, the time away was definitely worth it. I had an amazing time in El Paso this past week and I will tell you more about that in the coming posts!

Today, I wanted to share some adorable drawstring pouches that I made last week.



I had won a package of Japanese spindle cord in assorted colors from The Ribbon Jar. So when I received them, I immediately thought of making some fun little pouches.





The bags are completely reversible. I used different styles of patchwork for one side and designer fabric panels for the other.



Both pouches are now in my etsy shop. I have a lot of things in store for you this week including tutorials, segments of my trip, and perhaps even a little giveaway (wink, wink). Have a fabulous day!

Linking up to these parties!
