I wanted to create a doggie bag that is sturdy and wouldn't hang too low from the waist of the human. I also wanted to sew it as simply as possible...as in getting the pocket for the cord created BEFORE it is sewn into a tube! My treat bags are personalized with embroidery.
So here it is...feel free to use however you like, just don't try to sell my tutorial!
Drawstring Treat Bag
Choose your fabrics--less than 1/4 yard each (Piecing something together works well!)....I am using a 100% cotton fabric for the lining and a polyester/cotton for the exterior. You will also need cording (16"), webbing for a handle (approximately 8"), cord locks, coordinating thread and the usual sewing notions.
In the center of piece for the back, position a piece of webbing for the handle and sew to the top and bottom - using a 1/4" seam allowance.
This is Zum's bag...it is made using outdoor fabric for the exterior. This has a major oops (drawing string should be elsewhere)....but I think it looks good and will last a long time.
