Make a Drawstring Bag for your Chess Pieces with fabric from the “I’d Rather be Playing Chess” collection

Never lose your Chess Pieces with a DIY Drawstring Bag

I just love the Drawstring Bags Julia of BAYHILL STUDIO made with fabric from my I’d Rather be Playing Chess collection from Riley Blake Designs. I am also a bit enamored with her Star Wars Chess Set!

She used one of the quotes from the fabric panel for the larger bag and a checkerboard print for the smaller one. Here is a peek at all of the fabrics in the collection.

Visit Julia’s blog post to see more pictures and find the link to the free drawstring bag tutorial.

It’s your move – what will you make with the chess fabrics first?
