Bukuro Bag

This month over at Craftmad our sewing swap was a Bukuro Drawstring Bag. This was so much fun to make and all you need are two fat quarters and some ribbon.... oh, and a sewing machine.
This is not my swap bag as I forgot to take a photo before I sent it away.  I will show you when my partner posts a photo of it in the gallery.  I enjoyed making the swap bag so much I have another five on the go here and one is going to a special friend who has been very patiently waiting for a package from me.
I started with a fat quarter the (outside fabric) that I received from Cathy in last months sewing swap which we swapped two fat quarters. I have teamed it up with a plain yellow fat quarter.  Since this is a Japanese style get the shape you use a little origami.   Finished it with a yellow cross grain ribbon.
