This little bag is a great gift. It's a perfect finish for all sorts of needlework projects.

Materials:
  • 2 lining pieces
  • 2 pieces for front and back
  • 2 pieces for top border
  • Ribbons or yarn for the drawstring
The lining pieces and front and back pieces should be the same size. The pieces for the top border should be twice the intended size of the top border since it will be folded over in two.

Step 1
Sew the front piece, one top border piece and one lining piece together. The result will be one long piece. Do the same for the back piece, the other top border piece, and the remaining lining section.
