Home Ec - Drawstring Bag

So . . . funny thing. I made a boo-boo and sewed across the entire opening of the drawstring bag, thus making it very difficult to actually install any sort of drawstring, per the original design. But no matter, that's what improvising is for!

I decided to sew another line parallel to the first, again all around the opening. Then I made an opening between the lines, reinforced it with some hand-stitching, and used a safety pin to add the drawstring.

Also, I didn't like any of the ribbon that I had (that were the right width) for the drawstring, so I took a scrap of fabric and sewed my own. Finally, I added a bead to the drawstrings.
