A family member requested that I make a laundry bag for a trip he will soon be taking. He wanted a bag with a drawstring. I decided that if I have to make a laundry bag, it may as well be bright and cheerful. I don’t think there will be much chance of his forgetting the bag in a hotel room.
I folded over the top hem and made a buttonhole on one side. I inserted the drawstring last, then I sewed some fabric squares enclosing the ends of the drawstrings to keep them from untwisting and to make them easier to hold.
