Handy Drawstring Pouch is one of my most popular patterns. It has a flat bottom so it stands up, is fully reversible, looks great with contrasting fabrics, and is beginner friendly. The Handy Drawstring Pouch pdf sewing pattern has had a make over and is now available in three handy sizes to suit a variety of purposes. One of the best features of the Handy Drawstring Pouch is it shape – the cleverly shaped template gives it a flat bottom without the need for sewing pesky boxed corners.
To showcase the three different sizes in this pattern, I pulled all my favourite fruity prints from my stash and combined them with red and green checks and stripes.
Handy Drawstring Pouch is perfect for a variety of purposes – taking your lunch your work; giving a gift; or storing items in your sewing room or playroom.
I am striving to be more eco-friendly with my gift wrapping this year – having a stash of handy drawstring bags on hand in a variety of sizes makes gift giving easy.
I love how the flat bottoms look when made with contrasting fabrics.
The three sizes are perfect for nesting inside each other.
The pattern includes a 12 page ePattern format complete with plenty of step by step photos to guide you through the construction process. The templates are available in both A4 and Letter sized formats to suit your home printer so you can easily print at home.
