I ♥ Pinterest.
There are plenty of fantastic tutorials on there that I likely wouldn’t have otherwise stumbled upon.
Last fall I saw this tutorial on Pinterest last fall by Toni Coward (of Make it Perfect) and knew it had to go as a priority on my never ending DIY to-do list.*
*and my to-do list isn’t getting any shorter thanks to Pinterest!
Instead of having the drawstring at the sides, I decided to do them in the front center, as well as to add a “loop-hook” in the back (between the layers) so I can hang them on hooks if we choose!
I used Kona Solids for the lining & cord casings, but I think bias tape (ironed flat for casing, and sewn shut for a drawstring) would also work well! I might experiment in the future with alternatives. Because I’m sure we’ll end up needing more bags as we expand our toy interests to Lalaloopsy, Lego’s or Playmobil!
