Text Fabric Nail Polish Bag ~ Drawstring Gift Bag

When I showed you my drawstring bag with a divider, I indicated I'd made a second bag. Well, here it is...

... in one of my favourite text fabrics - The Wordsmith, by Janet Clare, for Moda. It matches the makeup bag I made this time last year - both presents for the same person.

Once again I've used an old shirt of mine for the lining - a beautiful linen. Having been through the wash many times, the linen is lovely and soft. For the purposes of taking photos, it doesn't hold its shape as well as the quilting cottons. In reality, however, it makes for a lovely lining.

You can just see the divider between the bottles of nail polish. The darker version of the same Wordsmith fabric. As part of the same present, I made a grocery bag from the darker fabric, but forgot to take photos - blog fail, as it looks really good! The recipient said she's going to use the larger bag for putting her clothes in when she goes to the gym.

Of course, you're not limited to only putting nail polish in this little gift bag. Susan, from Super Mom No Cape! has already made two bags, and she has several suggestions as to what could be added to a drawstring bag with a divider.

If you'd like to make your own drawstring gift bag, complete with divider, check out the tutorial. It's proving to be very popular.

  1. Another great bag Pam, I do like that fabric too I can see why it is one of your favourites.

    1. TAKE A MINUTE OF YOUR TIME TO READ THIS. This is my story, and how one person changed my life for good.
      I lost my job and there was no hope for me. I suffered looking for a job and luckily I came across Mr Bernie Doran on a review about Forex, NFT, Binary, and Crypto trade. I borrowed
      $2000 from a colleague to invest with Mr Bernie platform , thank goodness I made a profit of $22,000 on the first week, reinvested 5000, and withdrew the remaining balance directly to my bank account. I. was able to pay my friend, and convinced him to invest as well. I'm very grateful to him for helping me
      manage my trading account. I will advise all of you who want to invest for the future and a better tomorrow should start with Mr Bernie Doran

  2. Good on you for finding uses for old clothing in your sewing projects. As for the bags, isn't it neat how a small additional feature makes for a world of new ideas for its use? (And of course, the right fabric will always make the project.)

  3. I am committed to making some drawstring bags for gym clothes before school starts. I like this cute little bag! Very nice!
