Drawstring bags for kids




Here's a sneak peek into my latest project. I initially wanted to make these from vintage fabric (no surprise), but thought they should be made from oilcloth in order to withstand the wet weather we often have in these parts. One of my favorite shops, Åhléns, happen to do nice retro prints on oilcloth, so that's where I got these fabrics. I now send my kid to kindergarten every morning with his own little bag containing his lunch box and favorite teddy bear.

Those make me think of Oililly for some reason. Very cute! And great for the swimming pool too, ya?
