Sewn by YOU ~ Drawstring Bag with Divider ~ Nail Polish Bag

It usually takes a while for readers to start creating projects from one of my tutorials. Not so my latest tutorial - the Drawstring Gift Bag with Divider.

Joy, from Days Filled with Joy, made her pretty bag with left over scraps of fabric from a layer cake. She modified the bag by omitting the divider, and used a ribbon for the drawstring. The pieced fabrics look so good as a bag!!!

Alize, from the Netherlands, sent me an email to show me the two awesome bags she has already made, both complete with dividers, and both to be given as presents. The black and white one pictured is the first one finished. Black and white is so classy - it's timeless!!!

Susan, from Super Mom No Cape!, has also made two lovely bags, both in Christmas fabric. Susan gives some helpful tips for making the divider, and shows several photos with gifts to put inside these bags. She's come up with some fabulous suggestions.

Here's my gift bag - Christmassy colours, without using actual Christmas fabric. The matching nail polish was a complete fluke!!! Six bottles fit comfortably inside, with the divider stopping them from falling around.

And my second bag, this one in text fabric with linen lining - already given as a gift, with six bottles of nail polish inside.

If you'd like to make your own drawstring bag with a divider, check out the tutorial.

What would you put inside this little gift bag?

  1. Love the scrappy bag, what a great bunch of bags your readers have produced. They 're a real testament to an excellent tutorial Pam!

  2. These are cute, I'd love to make one in denim.

  3. Loved seeing the new versions of the gift bags!
