Weekend Sewing

I bought a fabulous headband from Anthropologie a while back and was more enamored by the wonderful cloth bag it came in. Anthro is super overpriced- according to me b/c I'm a cheapie- but little accents like a fabric bag instead of a plastic one are fine by me. I started using the drawstring bag to hold my lip glosses and hair bands, but the strings kept getting tied up in my purse. So, presto-change-o:

I cut the bag open, used some interfacing to give it substance, and used a natural linen for the lining and a fun celery green zipper to seal the deal. Now my glosses are wrangled and the strings are out of the way! I'm still amazed that I can actually make things that I can really use, like for real! Self-sustainment is very gratifying.


  1. This is a really great idea for any drawstring bag. I'm with you, though, Anthro seems WAY out of my price range!

  2. that is so cute! just found your blog - its really great. :)
    have a wonderful day!


I would love to hear what you have to say, but comments may be monitored for those few who are 'Debbie-Downers'. This is a creative outlet, I'm no expert, I just like to show others what I'm doing 'round the house. Like it or leave it.
