Drawstring Pouches

This is yet another project I had on my list of resolutions for 2014 - drawstring pouches! They are quite similar to the ones over at the Martha Stewart Page. The only difference is that mine have only one layer of fabric instead of two.

I used a 100% cotton fabric from IKEA called BERTA RUTA. Not sure whether it has the same name all over the world. As far as I know IKEA names things differently depending on the region it is sold. One meter of that fabric made three big pouches and a small one, btw. For the drawstrings I simply used shoelaces.

The drawstring pouches are also mentioned in Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts, which I got for my birthday last year. Great book with good information and nice project ideas in it!



  1. They're great! So handy for all sorts of things. Xx

  2. They're very nice. Would be nice to use to wrap Birthday presents in. :)
