My son needed a new sports drawstring bag for his kindergarden. Which of course I totally forgot and remembered the day before kindergarden and of course here in Germany all stores are closed on a Sunday. So I decided to sew one; DIY Dinosaur Drawstring Bag! (yes his favourite creatures are dinosaurs this year 🙂 )
At home I had always some fleece fabric. I cut triangular shape from different colors of fleece.(bottom is approx.. 8 cm)
Sewed them together and turned inside out. (bottom will be approx.. 6cm)
At the end I had 9 bony plates.
Then I cut 2 rectangular shapes (30 X 45 cm) from a brown fleece And cut one of them into half.(I left some space on the top for the cord to tighten the bag.)
I put some polypill inside the bone plates and replaced them in-between the brown fleece, which I cut into half.
Before sewing, I made sure that they were stable.
I cut out some letters and sewed them to the other rectangular brown fleece.
I also sewed the tail to the bag as I did the body part above. Then I sewed the sides.
Finally I sewed some extra fabric to the way, where the cord stands.Then I made 4 holes at the bottom side of the rectangular fleece. (2 on each side)
Place the cord as in the picture above. I used two 1,2 m cords. Well, I need to explain the picture above I guess 😀 Red and blue lines are the cords of same length. The rectangular shapes should be the same size but for explanation purposes I drew one of them bigger in order to show the way of the cords. Knot the ends of the cords inside of the bag.
