{6/52} Fabric birthday gift bag

Another cold winter day here, and it's been a day full of laundry, dishes, and sorting through the piles that accumulate all over the house. I was ready for a little break, so I decided to sew up a drawstring bag to "wrap" a gift for a birthday party that Lachlan is going to tomorrow. The invitation is "Monster High" themed, and although I'm not a fan of that show, I thought this little fashion sketchbook would be a fun gift with a box of new colored pencils.

I used a tutorial from See Kate Sew to make the drawstring bag. I have used the tutorial several times, and I love it because the bag is simple to sew, but seems a bit fancy because of the enclosed seams and drawstring. I eyeballed the measurements to make it plenty big to carry another sketchbook or collection of toys. I hope she likes the fun octopus fabric by Cotton and Steel!
