Drawstring Bags

With a new baby comes a whole lot of new luggage - we can't believe how much stuff we now need just to get out of the front door, never mind for one night away from home. So drawstring bags are uber useful containers for toys or swimming kits or dirty laundry.

Baby Biddle was very lucky to receive this personalised drawstring from his friend Baby Carkeek. Baby Carkeek's mummy used her crafting skills to add the elephants and letters onto a plain canvas bag. Now our little boy is three months old we can take him swimming, so this bag will be so useful for his kit.
Inspired by Mrs Carkeek's efforts, I made this little drawstring bag to celebrate the arrival of a friend's baby girl. Mr Biddle met this friend on a production of Alice Through The Looking Glass, hence the themed fabric, and I embroidered her name on plain calico to give it a personal touch.
