I’ve been enamoured with these drawstring lunch bags or project sacks for a while and decided my At the Lake fabric would be fun to give it a try! 

There are so many ways to use these!  Make them smaller for a young girl’s purse or use it as a round purse yourself. Pack snacks, lunch, a book and whatever you need to head to the lake for a reading escape… the possibilities are endless!

I found a blog post with a video tutorial on that made it quick and easy to complete. Click the button below to learn how to make one too.
