Circle Purse- Image Collection

Inspired young fashionistas may be able to create one of these no-sew drawstring bags all by themselves.

What you'll need

  • fleece
  • 20-inch diameter bowl or plate for template
  • 3/8- or 1/2-inch grosgrain ribbon
Helpful Tip:

For a cute clothes drawer sachet, use these directions to make a small drawstring bag from lightweight cotton fabric. Fill it with potpourri or cedar shavings, then tie the ribbon tightly to cinch it shut.

How to make it

  1. First, cut out a circle of fleece, using as a template a bowl or plate that's about 20 inches across.

  2. Circle Purse Step 2

    Mark and cut an even number of 1/2-inch slits perpendicular to the edge of the circle, about 1/2 inch in from the edge and about 1 1/2 inches apart.

  3. Circle Purse Step 3

    Starting from the outside, weave a 60-inch length of 3/8- or 1/2-inch grosgrain ribbon through the slits, all around the circle. Tie together the ends of the ribbon. To close the bag, cinch up the ribbon.
