Sewing drawstring bags has been such a satisfying project for me. Not only is it a very quick and easy project- it can help reduce your plastic waste output! So, I decided to start making drawstring bags to store my homemade bread -specifically- to avoid using so much plastic. (Fun fact: Linen helps to keep bread fresher for longer). I've enjoyed using these so much that I plan on making more with organic muslin cotton to use in lieu of plastic produce bags at the grocery. If you are interested in projects that promote sustainable living and reduce waste...this one is for you! This is also a great project for those new to sewing and looking for beginner-level sewing tutorials.
2 pieces of fabric (preferably linen or organic muslin cotton) 12 X 17 inches
35 inches of a natural fiber cord
Thread of a coordinating color
