This cute drawstring bag (or Baaah-g) is a delightfully quick project and results in a very adorable, useful hold-all! Use your Sheep Drawstring Bag to hold all your small knickknacks or use as a clutch for those evenings out at your local yarn shop! I designed this bag in mind of holding my miscellaneous sewing items and stitch-markers.
