DIY: Easy Drawstring Bag

Perfect as a re-usable gift wrap, themed to tote party favors, or as storage for wayward blocks, this super-simple drawstring bag DIY from favorite site Purl Bee is a satisfying project to whip out after the kids go to bed:  

Etsuka Furuya Echino home-decor weight fabric in yellow $16.95 per yard at superbuzzy

…and in pink and a variety of other patterns and colors for $19.50 a yard right at Purl Soho

I made mine with leftover scraps of decor-weight fabric and ribbon I had on hand, but how cute would it be with thick rick-rack or this Matryoshka Ribbon from Reprodepot?

I love the idea of re-usable gift wrap you make yourself. I often have leftover fabric after I finish a sewing project. This is a perfect use for it. Have you thought of using old clothing for the same purpose?
