My daughter is obsessed with bags. She loves anything that she can stuff full of little trinkets and bring with her wherever we go (not that we are going anywhere these days! #covid19). I designed this pattern a while back, to add a cute little pouch to her growing collection of purses, bookbags, etc.
The Star Light Drawstring Pouch is the perfect size for little ones and their little toys. It would make a super cute make-up bag, and it’s size would make it useful for organizing and storing other small items.
Don’t forget to save this pattern in your favorites and add it to your project queue to save it for later! View this pattern on Ravelry here.
