Drawstring Travel Bags

DIY Drawstring Shoe Bag

These little beauties are for a family planning a mega-marvelous holiday to America. They are perfect for keeping dirty shoes in or using as a small laundry bag while you’re away. Simple but stylish, with a serious dose of all-American awesomeness thanks to the funky star fabric.

Fabulous, right? But can you guess what’s going to make this gift that much more fabulous? (Wait for it!)


Yes my friends…a matching zipper pouch!


And it’s lined too. Fancy, eh? The lining material was hacked from a piece kindly donated to my stash by a friend. Thanks Emma, I’m getting new life from your old clothes!
