Drawstring Shoe Bag or Drawstring Bag for All Sorts of Uses

Out of scrap material you can create many practical household items. For example, why not sew a travel bag for your shoes. Often enough we travel and need to pack our shoes in the same suitcase as our clothes. Having an extra bag for the shoes keeps the clothes clean and the shoes protected as well. You can avoid using plastic bags by sewing one of these as well. This bag is created with very light cotton fabric, so it will not cause too much extra weight in a suitcase, which is important when traveling by plane. Within one hour it is sewn together and for beginners it is very easy to complete.

These are not limited to be used for shoes. Such drawstring bags are handy for many different things. The best part about them is that they are quickly done and practical.
