This cute drawstring bag is inspired by an old embroidery design. It’s the perfect size to use as a small bag when heading out for the night. Or, how about using it as the decorative cover to a vase or flower pot? The shape lets you easily place a vase inside it and then cinch the bag closed to hide the vase. Another option would be to use it as a doorstop. Knit the bag and then fill it with a small pillow, bean bag, or old children’s toy. This knitting pattern is so pretty I think it lends itself to being used as part of your home’s decor. Get creative and see what ideas you can come up with for putting this pattern to use.
