Drawstring bags

 I purchased a pattern from Jeni of "InColorOrder" and I'm loving making these bags in all different sizes.
 There are four young girls and a boy at church that help clean the nursery every Sunday so I let them pick one (the boy got a different gift because I thought these bags were a little too girlie)

Then I couldn't stop making them and have a whole bunch more to show you later.  I gave one to a friend for her birthday, and another friend had to say good-bye to her elderly sheepdog named Hershel so I put a jar of homemade strawberry jam in a little bitty one and brought it over to her house with a sympathy card.  So sad!  
So that's some of what's been keeping me away from this blog lately.
That's all for now, folks.  ~ Jodi ~


  1. oh so cute!!! What a great gift idea!

  2. I should get that pattern. I love every bag I see!

  3. You have done a great job turning a bit of fabric into a perfect gift! My friend Beth makes simple drawstring bags for every gift she gives, and now, her grandkids give the bags back to her, with the promise that she will fill them up again, so cute.
    Blessings on your day, how are the travelers doing? ~

  4. They're very cute. How nice of you to take the time to make them and so generously give them away. You're a thoughtful friend.


I love to hear from you!
