How does a drawstring bag work?

A drawstring bag, or cinch-up backpack, is a small, lightweight bag that is adjustable with two strings. You pull the strings to close the bag, and pull the bag apart at the top when you want to access the items stored inside.

What can I use for a drawstring?

Any piece of cord, trimming, ribbon or fabric could become a drawstring. Ribbons add a more feminine touch while cords are great for projects requiring sturdy fastenings like bags. You can also experiment with different colors and add your personal touch by using contrasting materials.
