After making a gown recently, I had a small bit leftover and figured I’d make something out of it. Another plus point about tulle – no fraying! (Feel free to use an old tee shirt to make this too! No fraying either!)

So here’s sharing with you – how to sew a tulle drawstring bag in about five minutes flat.

Cut out a long rectangular piece of tulle. Folded in half, this should be the size of the drawstring bag that you want.

At the top, fold down (outwards) on both sides and sew it down. The height of each fold should be enough for your drawstring to pass through plus a little bit more for seam allowance.

Fold it back together and sew the two sides down.

Thread your drawstring in. If you’re using a ribbon or something flat, you could attach a safety pin to the start to help drag it through.

Once you’ve reached one end, stick it through the other and continue threading towards where you came from.

When you’ve reached the end, knot the strings together and you’re done! To keep the ends of the string from fraying, you could add nail polish or fray check if it’s a ribbon or if it’s a fat cord, you could just tape the ends.

    I have done something similar to this , and I use them for reusable produce bags instead of using the plastic bags provided in grocery stores, or at the market.
