Winnie The Pooh Bag

Sometimes, when my creative juices need a nudge, I just sort through my stash of fabric, and remnants just jump out at me and then magically turn into something. These pieces of Disney Winnie The Pooh fabric were transformed into this little girl's drawstring bag with "wristlet" handle.
It measures 12" wide when open and 7" tall. Drawstrings are drawn through a casing between the outside and lining fabrics. A pocket is added inside.
I am going to create a tutorial soon with a pattern and directions on how you can make one too. It took about an hour and a half. This project resurrected my passion for working with kid's colorful fabrics.
Just as a head's up, this only requires 1/4 yard (or fat quarter) each of outer fabric and lining, and 1.5 yard (48") of decorative cord. I use a polyolefin with a glitter through it. The handle is hot pink corduroy (which matches Pooh's t-shirt) on one side and matching fabric on the other.
