Melanie at The Crafty Cupboard shows how to make a drawstring bag with a faux leather bottom. She makes them trendy with a tribal-inspired quilting cotton for the top portion. They have boxed bottoms and are fully lined. The faux leather has enough body to hold the shape of the bottom. You could use them for all sorts of purposes, from storage to purses to gift giving. I think they’d make nice lunch sacks. Go to her blog for the tute.
