DRAWSTRING STUFF BAG
Sometimes I get into a project and switch the style from one kind of bag to another when the fabric says it should be something other than what was originally intended. This started out to be a backpack. But the thickness of the corners with all the "patches" inside made of heavy interfacing, plus two layers of stretchy velvety knit, did not work well will grommets. So it was re-designed into a drawstring stuff bag, with handles. I reinforced the handles with interfacing. The lining is made of cotton to prevent the bag from stretching when lots of contents are added. There is a small pocket inside for keys, cellphone, or other small items. The glittery silver flowers add a touch of elegance.
