Wanda recently started selling her handmade bags and they are beautiful. She chooses the cutest fabrics and I can personally attest to the fact that they are sturdy and well-made because this adorable bag has survived being used by my children for over a week and is still in perfect condition (I know! Wonders never cease!).
There are endless possibilities for how you might use a Drawstrings bag, but Lucy needed something to keep her little ballet things in so that I wouldn’t be finding tutus under the couch that escaped from dress-up time.
Not that things like tutus ever get lost under the couch for weeks at a time at OUR house where things are always SHIP SHAPE (ahem). But say I was the sort of housekeeper who lost things under the couch…this bag would certainly come in handy. Also, it has a little “grab and go handle” for hanging it up and that makes my heart sing:
Lucy thinks her Drawstrings bag is pretty wonderful and can you even handle that little toddler ballerina belly?
And from the lovely way her Drawstrings bag was packaged when it arrived in the mail, I have a feeling that Wanda isn’t the sort of person who tosses her daughter’s birthday present in a grocery bag, throws some tissue paper on top and says, TA DA! (Yes, I am that sort of person. Sorry, Gwen. Nobody remembers their first birthday, right? Just say yes to make me feel better.)
Wanda’s bags come in sizes small to large, so they can be used for much more than keeping your dress-up clothes handy. The large sizes would make lovely laundry bags, the small sizes would be ideal for jewelry, hair things, or makeup.
And Drawstrings are a big hit with you crafty folk out there in need of knitting bags. I think Drawstrings would also be the perfect bag to keep children’s Mass items in. (We let our kids take religious board books and picture books, rosaries, holy cards, etc to look at during Mass to help with the wiggles.) And a Drawstrings rosary bag is even in the works!
