Drawstring Bag

We've been working at improving some of our window coverings so in the process we've had some discards, including a curtain used for our entry window. Since it had a top and bottom casing I thought it would be great to turn it into a simple drawstring bag. I sewed up the sides, threaded a piece of twill tape through the casing, and sewed the ends of the tape together. Excuse the wrinkles, ironing is not my priority. I love to reuse good items otherwise destined for the garbage. I think I'll use this as a dirty laundry bag when we are traveling.

Total project time: 10 minutes.

Total cost: $0.

Clever! That's a great idea. It's always nice when you can find new, practical uses for things that otherwise would end up on the yardsale table or in a bag bound for Goodwill. ~Rachel W.
