Drawstring bags are quick and easy to make, so when Ros put out the call to help make some for NICU babies, I didn't hesitate in replying that I'd make some.
The bags are for babies in the NICU at the Northern Hospital in Melbourne (Australia). Each baby needs a cotton drawstring bag, to be used as a laundry bag for their gowns and jumpsuits.
I whipped up seven bags - they don't take long!
Each bag takes ½ yard fabric, so that's 3½ yards all up. Didn't even make a visible dent in the stash!
I love the fabric! A couple of years ago I bought a whole bolt - Paper Dolls by Sheryl Rae Marquez for Windham Fabrics. It's out of print now, but I still have plenty left.
I'll be adding these drawstring laundry bags to both the Sewing for Charity and the Drawstring Bags link parties, here at Threading My Way.
