ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #7

ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #7 is a drawstring bag made from a scrap of fabric and some ribbon from my haberdashery supplies.
This one is a good size for shoes, but I like to have them in different fabrics and sizes when travelling as they help keep things separate in my larger bag.

When I am sewing these little bags I finish the edges of the sides first (usually on the overlocker), then sew up the side seam(s) leaving a gap for the ribbon/cord to come out later.
Then I fold the top down and stitch to make a casing, and then thread the ribbon in through the gap left in the side seam round and back out again.
