Then I've tried to make drawstring bags using the instructions I found here. I've added felt hearts and flowers I've cut and added some finishing touches with gold liner and a fabric pen. I've made 2 bags, one for each girl to use for their gym clothes at school. The fabric I've used with Pippi Longstockings on it, I've bought 6 years ago and at last used it! The girls love it. Mommy happy.
