February Sewing: Another Drawstring Bag for Ellie (this one for on-the-go)

I am really in love with making drawstring bags currently!  I made this one for Ellie yesterday.  My friend Anne gave me the great idea of having a bag to keep in the car with some toys and books.  So, I put a car on it to help us remember where it belongs when not in use!

I put a pocket on the other side with Ellie’s initial.

The outside is Kona Grass Green with a lilac print from Joann’s (purchased for the purple page.)  The inside is actually from a worn out crib sheet that my sister-in-law gave me!

I turned this one into a backpack to make it easier for us to carry.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out!

I used this tutorial but enlarged it, added the outer embellishments, and turned it into a backpack.
