Do you know a D & D fan? I’ve got one in my family and we had a birthday party for my son recently. He had friends over to play Dungeons and Dragons. They’re tweens and too old for traditional gift bags, so I made a DIY Dungeons and Dragons Drawstring Bag for the game dice they received.
I am really not a seamstress, so if I can sew this drawstring bag then it really is easy. Honestly.
I purchased this fabric as a remnant, so I simply cut it into 4 pieces to make the 4 bags I needed. But the dimensions of the fabric were roughly 11 1/2 inches by 9 1/2. I sewed the rectangle together so that it made a bag. Then I turned 1 inch down, plus 1/4 inch turned under at the top. I sewed 2 seams around the top to make a casing for the drawstring.
Using a seam ripper, I opened the side seam between the two rows of stitching so that I could insert the drawstring
Because these boys are playing D&D together every week, I wanted to add their initials to the bags to help them keep track of their dice. I used black embroidery thread with one strand of gold thread to embroider the initials.
If I had this to do over, I’d embroider the initials first before I sewed the bags up.
These drawstring bags have helped the boys keep track of their dice and not lose any (yet).
These DIY Dungeons and Dragons Drawstring Bags were the perfect party favor gift bag for a tween boy’s D&D birthday party.
