Last week I showed a quick and easy way to add a pen sleeve to a plain drawstring bag. Today, I’ve got another idea to show you.
I gave the plain bag a tie dye effect using SEI Tumble Dye - fabric dye in a spray bottle. It took less than a minute for me to create the splattery design. Then, I replaced the plain cotton drawstring with a coordinating ribbon. Finally, I used a strip of fusible webbing to add some pom pom fringe around the top.
How simple is that! And because it’s so quick to do, you could make up a bunch of bags in an evening.
Disclosure: I received the bag used in this project free of charge from State Line Bag Company. They made no request that I give them a good review in exchange for the bags.
