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.
