Sew a Japanese-style drawstring bag. The final size is 6 ½” by 5 ¾”* origami bag, made from one 15” square of fabric. Just fold your fabric this way and that, sew, and voila! You have a cute little bag, complete with four small secret pockets and two decorative flaps! Add ribbon or cording to draw it closed.

This pattern contains detailed and easy-to-follow instructions on how to make this adorable bag. Instructions are for a 15" square of fabric, but can be easily adapted for any size fabric, to make it larger or smaller.

Make this versatile bag in oriental prints, juvenile prints, batiks, white satin for a wedding or prom, or use your imagination to create a unique look!

This little bag is a great opportunity for embellishment, too! Add a lace trim, beading, rhinestones, a crocheted motif on the flaps, and more. Use your imagination to add your own personality!
